Post WRX- will it increase awareness of the SVX?

Just wondering- the WRX is gonna be plastered on every cover of every car mag come spring- and the articles are gonna mention Subaru performance, which includes the SVX. There may be some positive brand recognition- "yes sir, my subaru is a very fast car...no, its not the WRX."

Greetings,

I doubt it...the WRX has been around (Japan, Europe) for awhile. Most Americans have no interest in performance automobiles (just look at the death of the RX-7, 300Z, Stealth, Supra...SUV's on the other hand)...especially one from Subaru. Besides the SVX is now 4 model years old...Subaru may decide to not even mention the SVX just like you never hear about the XT anymore. In any event...I like having people not knowing what my car is...

The latest SVX rumour I have heard is that the "new" SVX will be a re-badged WRX coupe in 2003.
We'll see . . .

I don't think the WRX will do much to increase SVX awareness. The 2.5RS didn't do much, I doubt the WRX will either.

I do expect US police departments to start learning what their bretheren down under have discovered: A WRX can't outrun a Motorola, but it will make a Crown Victoria look like a Oldsmobile Skylark with badly worn shocks and blown rings.

Yeah, I've heard that the WRX is the choice getaway car for bad guys in certain countries. Plus if you had a wagon version, you could put all the loot in the back...
