Subaru Impreza Sedan Concept Shows Off Sleek Body in L.A.

Previews next-gen Impreza.

The Subaru Impreza sedan concept, which debuted at the L.A. auto show today, features a sleek new look that previews the automaker's future design language and its next-gen compact sedan.

The concept model points to a more rounded front end and softer grille on the new Impreza. Fewer chrome accents surround the hexagonal shaped grille, which has been reshaped for a more subtle appearance. Blue lighting, sharper headlights, gloss-black accents, and a bold character line near the side windows complement the car's sultry Ruby Red Metallic paint job. At back, look for a spoiler and taillights that extend far into the trunk.

Subaru made the concept a hair shorter yet considerably wider than the current 2016 Impreza. While it's only about an inch shorter in length, the concept is a full 5.5 inches wider. It also features a slightly wider wheelbase at 105.1 inches, compared to the old model's 104.1 inches. While the dimensions can change for production, we wouldn't be surprised if the new model was considerably wider than its predecessor.

We also recently saw the Impreza 5-Door concept debut at the Tokyo motor show last month. Check out the photos to see the similarities between the two models. However, it's unlikely that some of the bolder design elements will make their way into production.

The show must go on, as they say, and so that’s exactly what organizers of the much-loved annual Tokyo Auto Salon did, taking the 3-day event that usually happens in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center and translating it (metaphorically, not literally; it was still largely in Japanese) into both streaming video and 3D.

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car. In some cases,

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
