The two distinguishing features of the vehicle are the A-pillar stretching forward and smoothly flowing C-pillar. These features provide for the above mentioned roomy cabin space and its impressive aerodynamic performance. The distinctive arches of the vehicle reveals that it is an AWD model (All Wheel Drive) strongly portraying the image of Subaru as a powerful driving character and denoting the vehicle’s reliability and safety.
The front design stresses that this car is a Subaru – with a low-and-wide stance that evokes reliability, security, and safety – while also expressing a new Impreza design language. Another feature is the hexagon grille with its central spread wings, serving as the identity for a new generation of Subaru automobiles.
The three-dimensional structure of the front face and engine hood of the Subaru Impreza Concept surround a hexagonal form that powerfully increases the presence of this concept car. Seen in combination with the traditional hawk eye-style headlights, this striking, unique design presents a front face instantly recognizable as a Subaru. A fin-shaped fog lamp is also featured in the front bumper. Following on the Subaru wing motif, it gives an even fresher expression of the Subaru identity.
The rear design is harmonious with the rest of the car and includes a hexagonal garnish that seems to project outward from the center. The rear lights create a sharp impression, with an edged design that stretches to the body side and joins with the body character line. The interior of the lighting is attractive and unique, and is layered with gradation effects to give a strong impression of depth. For the diffusers on the underside of the rear bumper and the rear deck, Subaru has employed a design that capitalizes on aerodynamic characteristics with satisfying environmental friendliness.
The Subaru Impreza Concept is powered by a next-generation Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine with improved environmental friendliness. The combination of the 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated Boxer engine with a Lineartronic (CVT) represents Subaru’s next-generation powertrain. The Impreza Concept blends environmental friendliness and comfortable ride with the trusted performance that Subaru’s traditional symmetrical AWD provides. The result increases the “enjoyment and peace of mind” concept that lies behind the Subaru Impreza Concept.
