The LA Auto Show gave us hints at the look of future WRX and WRX STIs. Built to express possible future Subaru design elements, the Impreza Design Concept blends two ideas: "dynamic flow and confident stance" to showcase Subaru's engineering core values of dynamic performance, safety, driving enjoyment and quality.
From the front, the Impreza Design Concept is clearly recognizable as a Subaru, with a hexagonal grille with spread wings in the center and hawkeye-style headlights. At the same time, the front view previews a new direction for the brand's design, with the hood, grille and headlights designed to project 3-D character. Fin-shaped foglamps, which follow the wing motif, emphasize a fresh expression of Subaru identity. Many sophisticated adjectives can be conjured to describe the concept's esoteric design elements; we just want more power and balanced handling.
