Subaru has taken the wraps off the new Impreza Sedan concept.

Designed to preview the next-generation model, the concept adopts the company's new Dynamic x Solid design language.  As a result, the car has a stylish and aggressive exterior that looks far more upscale than its predecessor.

Starting up front, there's a hexagonal grille that is flanked by slender hawk-eye headlights and LED fog lights.  The concept also has a Ruby Red Metallic exterior with gloss black accents and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The sporty styling continues aft of the A-pillar as there's muscular wheel arches, strong character lines, and tasteful amounts of metallic trim.  The side profile also reveals a dynamic greenhouse, a coupe-like roofline, and a short rear trunk with an integrated spoiler.

Overall, the model measures 179.3 inches long, 70 inches wide, and 57.2 inches tall with a wheelbase that spans 105.1 inches.  The latter figure allows for a relatively spacious cabin that comfortably seats five adults.

How much carries over to the production model remains to be seen but the next-generation Impreza will ride on an all-new modular platform and it is slated to go into production in late 2016.  Little else is known about the car but is expected to have a new-generation of fuel-efficient engines that feature cylinder deactivation technology.
