Considering that the vehicle will tip the scales at 2,667 lbs (1,210kg), we should get hot hatch-level performance in a straight line. We’ll be able to choose between two equipment levels (it’s not clear if the scheme will be used worldwide or is limited to the Japanese Domestic Market).
Both will be available with a manual or an automatic transmission, but the entry-level one will only offer a limited slip diff for the higher trim. The entry-level one will come with 16-inch wheels, while the other one will use 17-inch ones.
It’s obvious that this is just a part of the story, as the project just can’t be limited to this power-to-weight ration. Subaru should release a 300 hp version for their part of the deal, the BRZ, but we still have to wait to find out the details.
