LA Auto Show: Subaru Impreza Concept

Posted by

Hot on the heels of a hatchback variant shown at the Tokyo auto show comes this Subaru Impreza concept being unveiled in LA.


What Is It?

The Impreza is Subaru’s compact sedan. It competes with the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra and the many others in this segment, albeit with the advantage of all-wheel drive.

And now, with this new version spawning from Subaru’s upcoming modular platform, the lumpy styling of the current model looks to be replaced with styling that’s athletic and purposeful.


What Subaru Says:

“The all-new Impreza will be the first example of Subaru’s next-generation vehicles using a new modular platform.

The design is sportier and less angular than the previous generation Impreza, but with a powerful stance expressing Subaru’s new Dynamic x Solid design language. The new design direction hints at not only the new Impreza design, but of Subaru’s future models.”

What’s New:

  • Dynamic X Solid design language points to Subaru’s new styling direction
  • Exterior dimensions remain compact, with overall length measuring 179.3 inches

When Will It Go On Sale?

The production model will likely it will end up being a 2017 model, but no intro date has yet been named.
