Like the five-door hatch before it, the Impreza Sedan Concept wears sharp styling, with pointed hawk-eye lights front and rear, and sharp bodyside creases creating a strongly defined shoulder.
The front bumper and grille are shared with the hatch version, so too the 19-inch alloy wheels, which pick up red accents (in place of the hatches blue-hued wheels) to match the new car’s ruby red metallic paint.
There’s a much faster angle to the roofline behind the B-pillar, while the rear bumper scores a black insert and a single visible exhaust outlet.
Exterior dimensions stray from the hatch slightly, length at 4555mm is 155mm longer than the five-door, the 1880mm width adds an extra 80mm while the 1453mm height sits 13mm above the hatch concept.
There’s been no word yet on what powertrain the concept pair run yet, but the hatch does run Subaru’s trademark all wheel drive.
The new generation Impreza may move away from the naturally aspirated engines of the current range, and adopt the 1.6 litre turbo four that powers the Levorg wagon in Japan.
Despite its sleek style, the new model won’t be making any move upmarket however, with Subaru describing the Impreza as “an entry model in the Subaru line-up”.
The Interior remains unseen for the time being, but Subaru promises seating for five.
With a history of delivering bold concept vehicles that don’t survive the transition to sleek production vehicles, it will be interesting to see how Subaru converts this show car into a production reality.
