Subaru's future lineup is coming into focus as Automotive News is reporting the company will adopt a single platform for their entire lineup.

Little is known about the platform itself but utilizing a single architecture should enable the company to cut costs and speed up development time.

Besides the new platform, we can expect new engines with direct injection and cylinder deactivation technology. There will also be a new plug-in hybrid model in 2017.

As for the vehicles themselves, the BRZ is slated to receive a minor facelift for the 2016 model year. It will only stick around for a few years as an all-new model is expected in 2018.

The Impreza, on the other hand, is scheduled to receive a minor facelift later this year. An all-new model is still a ways off but could arrive in late 2016 or early 2017.

The XV Crosstrek will follow slightly behind the Impreza as a facelift is scheduled for next year, while a full redesign should occur in 2018.

Last but not least, the Tribeca successor could be introduced within three years. Little is known about the model but the Automotive News is reporting it could be based on the seven-passenger Exiga.
