The new Impreza will enter the market as a 2017 model either late this year or early in 2017.

As with most Subarus, the Impreza comes standard with all-wheel-drive.

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.

The Impreza can be had with a continuously variable transmission or a six-speed manual.

Running lights made up of LEDs are concealed in the front fascia.

These headlights lack the strong, angled form seen on the WRX.

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

Subaru retains a hatchback version of the Impreza.

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

The driveline specs are the same between the sedan and hatchback.

All-wheel-drive also comes standard with the hatchback.
