They say the new Impreza will be announced at the NY Auto Show. I'll definitely be heading in to see that!

A diesel boxer? SWEEET! Any words on multi-fuel engines?

And FINALLY, they ditch that center Alfa Romeo protrusion. Nasty looking. The chrome top to the grill reminds me of a Mazda, but it is a good styling cue. They've kept the cat-eye glasses headlights, but softened the edges and rounded the points, looks better. The hood indent leading to a scoop is very clean too, I like that, doesn't look like it's just dropped into the hood. The tail lights are nice too, very simple and effective styling. I don't know about having a tail-fin like that, it seems you can achieve more with subtle aerodynamics that don't look tacked on. The jury is still out on the crossover style body, but I kind of like it. Then again, I've always been partial to the wagons.

Overall, I like it a lot better than the current styling. With the right marketing, I think you will see a resurgeance in Impreza owners, new and old. Well done, Subaru!

An AWD convertible? Now THAT is hedging your bets! Hey, at this point it's encouraging to see any automaker trying something a little out of the mainstream...so no complaints from me.
