Subaru has released the first picture of the redesigned Impreza, ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show.
Available in four- and five-door body styles, the new Impreza appears to be a vast improvement over its homely predecessor as it features elegant styling with chrome accents, a kinked rear window and muscular wheel arches. Furthermore, Subaru says the car will have a "roomier interior and improved levels of comfort and refinement."
Power will likely be provided by the new 2.0-liter Boxer engine that develops 148 PS (109kW / 146 hp) and 196 Nm (145 lb-ft) of torque. While that hasn't been confirmed, Subaru said the Impreza will be able to achieve 36 mpg which is the best fuel economy rating of any all-wheel drive vehicle in the United States.
