Impreza Sedan Concept previews next-generation model, future vehicles from Subaru
Subaru has just given a glimpse of the next-generation Impreza after debuting the Impreza Sedan Concept at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show. Described by the company as having a 'sportier and less angular' look than its predecessor, the concept car carries Subaru's new design language called Dynamic x Solid design, along with a new modular platform.
Subaru claims that the front, side and rear are seamlessly joined in order to convey a muscular look that exudes the brand's signature design. Seen at the front is a hexagonal grill that is paired with reshaped 'hawkeye' headlights and an aircraft-inspired front wing.
Over to the side, it has a prominent character line that runs from the front fenders, all the way to the rear quarter panels. The doors, on the other hand, were designed in such a way that it gives the four-door compact a coupe profile. Rounding it all off is a set of 19-inch alloy wheels that fit flushly to the wheel arches, highlighting the car's wide stance.
The rear, on the other hand, gets sharp wraparound taillights, a sleek trunk design with an integrated spoiler, and dual exhausts.
Finished in Ruby Red Metallic, the concept measures 4554mm long, 1778mm wide, 1453mm tall and a 2669mm wheelbase.
No powertrain details were specified but Subaru did say that it will ride on a new modular platform and the production version will hit the factory floor in late 2016.
