    2012 Subaru Impreza - A Closer Look


    The fourth generation 2012 Subaru Impreza has arrived, and to paraphrase Huey Lewis, the first thing you might notice is that it's hip to be square... er. Underneath its skin, the new Impreza says a few things that Americans aren't so used to – nor so fond of – hearing, like the fact that it has a smaller-displacement engine with less horsepower.

    If that's the step backward, though, there are more than two steps forward: It's lighter, faster, more frugal, stiffer, nicer inside, has a better suspension and more interior room, all the while being the same size as the previous generation. Said Subaru Production Line Manager James Todd, "it's all upside."

    We'll let you decide that. But in the meantime...

    just because they are collaborating with toyota on one car doesnt mean they have to make all their cars look alike...

    I dont get it. When I pulled up the website and saw 2012 Subby Impreza I was like dam I just bought my 2011 last week. But then I looked at it and was like, Dam an end of an era.

    I like the front end, the headlights look very aggressive to me. But the rest of the car couldn't be pointed out in a line-up

    Sedan looks ok, like a small legacy. Hatchback looks pretty awful. Like a Dodge Caliber AKA the ugliest 5-door currently in production.

    Both the wagon and the sedan are very oddly proportioned. The body lines of the sedan remind me of a Camry and the wagon reminds me of a Pontiac vibe. I guess the new Subaru demographic is drawn to these kinda cars... not me.

    Does it really look that much worse than a 2011 base impreza? Not really the most appealing car on the planet. For what it is, I think this one looks better than the present hatch.

    Meh. The high door sill / shorter glass "chopped" look reduces outward visibility. It's currently in fashion for many cars. I've admired Subaru in the past for not being a follower.

    It is very Caliber-ish as pointed out above.

    The rear bumper on the hatch looks like it's designed to minimize damage when backing up to a loading dock, does this mean it has sick payload?
