I think I've cracked the code. I think the Levorg is the low volume QA/test bed for the WRX and STi, to test and develop the production lines and find problems in the system before they start working on the greater volume vehicles, since it essentially is a WRX. Which, as a mfr, it makes sense... Best way to roll out changes is in small batches. If you got a low volume item that's essentially the same as the higher volume, see what happens when you start working on the low volume item to streamline the higher volume production.

1st Gen Levorg came out in 2014, as a 2014 model. Shortly after that, they released the new VA WRX and STi (dropped "impreza") as 2015 models, and WRX went to the FA.

New Levorg above, and... if I'm right, that means we'll shortly see/hear an announcement of the next WRX/STi, and it *will* be quite similar to the design language used in this Levorg, just like it was in 2014.
