2006 Subaru Impreza

Well as I said before this looks like the new front for future Subaru cars...

I do have a question about the 2006 Imprezas: From rumors that I have seen on the web, the Impreza will get the 173 hp 2.5 liter engine that the new Forester will have and the WRX will get the 230 hp turbo engine in the 2006 Forester XT. Will this make the WRX an Impreza XT? Is this a good/bad/neutral thing? How will this engine compare with the 227 hp 2.0 liter engine currently in the WRX? Should I run out and buy another 2005 WRX?

I don't think the states gets the redesign until 07.

For the most part I like the Forester and Impreza redesigns, but I wouldn't call them an 'improvement'.
As far as engines in the Impreza lineup. Yes, the RS horsepower is being bumped up, and the WRX gets the 2.5 turbo. It's a huge improvement over the 2.0 turbo powerplant. Too bad I'm not in the market for another car...yet.

I'd have to agree. I think it looks better because it's not so pronounced. It's a little flatter than the nose on the tribeca. now all they have to do is flatten it a little more, bisect it down the middle, and add a blue and white propeller on top..heh heh heh
I have to say it looks much better than the Tribeca. Not bad at all actually. Maybe it's the combination of the headlights and hood that make the grille look weird on it (Tribeca). But, here on the Impreza, I actually kinda like it.

An updated version of the 1948 Tucker !.....As you can see, Preston Tucker was almost a century ahead of his time!

Dont forget subaru usually screws up on their first few model years on their new designs and then make it up later. I just cant wait until the B11S 3.0TT 400HP comes out but hopefully it looks more like the car above.

Of course, I'd prefer if they brought back the Loyale, in wagon and hatch form. Now that's easy to look at.
