Found it over on nasioc. Based on the new 2017 imprezza concept. As for me, I would get that. :tup:

Subaru has always had a way of punching you in the face with their like it or don't mentality. Now they have designed one that looks like the fist that punches you in the face.

I actually quite like that a lot..but while Impreza will be refreshed in 2017 I don't know if WRX/STI will, as they were lagging 3 years for VA chassis refresh to Impreza refresh in 2012.

That said If that car comes out like that with FA engine, I'm trading my 06 in.

I like it but I would never buy it. I'm not a hatch kinda guy. On the other hand I hope Subaru makes it. Maybe a sedan and a hatch in production at the same time isn't financially feasible for them, but switching back and forth every few years might keep all the fans (sedan and hatch) around.

You are on to something there my friend. I like that idea. Like you said, it may not be feasible or strategic for Subaru but to alternate every 5 years or so would be pretty cool for Sedan and Hatch fans.

Hatch fans who wish to trade up every 7-10 years, give or take, could upgrade. Same goes for sedans. And for people who just love STis no matter what and that like to trade up every 5 years could change it up and enjoy both styles. :lol:

We all know it's going to look nothing like this when a new body style does come out. WRX Concept from a couple years ago all over again....

I'm not a hatchback guy but all i can think of is that this reminds me of a newer Hyundai Elantra hatch... Don't hate me for that

I'm with markweso on this. These renders aren't real cars we ever see. More like design targets. This one is missing engine side vents which seems a big departure and why it looks like a Mazda and a hyundai. Anyway I do like the BBS wheels. They are the most realistic part of the whole thing

I'd be okay with either of those renders. Looks a lot better than what subaru has produced lately as a whole. Not a ton of faith in the future models, but if it looked like that and wasn't bloated to hell id buy one

Thank you for remembering that it is only a photoshop of the current impreza concept shown at the auto show. In terms of opinions, for me, the 2nd red one seems like a car the Griswolds would drive. Too long.
