While the Subaru WRX STi still has a huge fan base right now, there is no denying that the sales of the Subaru WRX STI have been dropping. While most people believe that it is mainly because of Subaru and their reluctance to give the Subaru WRX STi a proper upgrade, others think that it is because the consumers have already moved on.
While performance sedan used to be the car to have a few years ago, it is all about the hot hatches now and because of that, most of the performance sedan in the market have been suffering.
Fans think that the best way to save the Subaru WRX STi right now will be to release a hatch version of the performance model. Of course, Subaru has never indicated that they are looking to build one in the near future.
If Subaru does decide to build a Subaru WRX STi hatch, it will be coming in to compete with models like the Honda Civic hatch, the Ford Focus RS and more.
