The Subaru x STI is just the "S4" WRX. Lame.

E-RA, let the fun begin.

Looks more like the white concept car, but with headlights instead of just LEDs.

You literally just asked "How will Subaru differentiate their performance car from a crossover?"

The answer is, the same way they always have, by focusing on driving rather than utility. Lighter, lower, bigger motors, stickier tires.

As to when it hits the market, who knows.

That looks more like a Legacy wagon than a Levorg. Also, that concept? It's REALLY low profile.

Subaru (or toyota), you are back to having my full attention.

Joining it at TAS will be the WRX STI performance concept, based on the JDM-spec WRX S4 STI Sport R trim level. It gets a series of additional upgrades from Subaru Tecnica International, including a massive rear wing and a not-so-subtle aero kit finished in red to match the side mirror caps and the STI badge on the front grille. It probably wouldn't be too far-fetched to assume the concept will serve as a preview for the beefier WRX STI.

I think the "stage" banner image is just an old image. The WRX, Levorg and BRZ are all old pre-SGP models.
