Subaru shies away from the front-end styling it used on the new Legacy and WRX.

The front end is less pronounced and lacks the frosted running lights in the headlight casings.

This example is in Sport trim, so it shows aero elements up front.

Under the hood, the Impreza will have a two-liter four-cylinder engine similar to the current model, but with horsepower increased to 152.

With the extended length and an extra 1.5 inches of width, there should be plenty of cargo room.

With the increases in width and length, the Impreza hatchback almost feels like a baby Outback.
