Inexpensive and built to stay that way.

To me, it really looks like a refreshed version of 2005-2009 Legacy, instead of a Impreza.

Paddle shifters?

It keeps the mechanical emergency brake.

And looks pretty similar to the XV concept's interior, from what we can see (minus the silver bits and LCDs).

Full size here.

Look like the 4th gen Legacy's cupholder cover.

looks good to me

I'd like to thank the 2010 Subaru LGT and the Toyota Corolla for getting over their differences and doing the horizontal monster mash until till they produced this.
No thanks

Looks an aweful lot like 4th Gen Legacy to me.

@subaru_usa twitter posted a couple behind the scenes pics, prepping for the New York event tomorrow. Just stage pics, no Impreza there yet.

Weren't you listening? Despite the fact that this thing only has a 2.0 engine which loses almost 30HP and 30 tourque's from the current 2.5, this car has lost SOOO much weight that it will be FASTER. You're going to NEED paddle shifters to flip through the CVT while doing your 5 sec 0-60 times.

Hoping that there are bigger wheel options. Those 16's look horrid on this thing.

Oh, and apparently Chrysler took over Fiat. Did not know that one. Thanks for the info, Matt. I guess I was wrong in thinking that Chrysler went bankrupt and Fiat saved them. People actually watch this "Today Show???"

Decent video... Would have been better if they shot some tear gas into the crowd so you could actually hear what they people were saying.

Any word on whether or not the next WRX will be based off of the new engine?

Was thinking the same thing

It's a Mini Legacy.... Wonder what the Hatch is going to look like...

Yay, a real parking brake handle! :)

So-so. Headlights could have flowed better. I don't like the split front side windows (thank you you stupid window frames) and I'm curious to know what the dash will look like.
