Subaru has unveiled the Impreza 5-Door Concept at the ongoing Tokyo Motor Show. The concept previews the next-generation Impreza and is the first of Subaru’s strategic vehicles envisioned in the Mid-Term Management Vision called “Prominence 2020.”
The Subaru Impreza 5-Door Concept-evolved next-gen Impreza will be positioned as the entry-level model in the line-up and rival with the Opel Astra, VW Golf, Ford Focus and the likes. The concept model looks attractive with Subaru’s Dynamic and Solid design theme, giving it a quality that feels more premium. The dimensions of this 5-seat hatchback concept are 4,400 mm, 1,880 mm and 1,440 mm in length, width and height respectively; it has a wheelbase of 2,670 mm.
The front of the concept features a low and wide stance with the hexagonal grille outlined in chrome and flanked by the hawk-eye headlights. The side profile is defined by the rising shoulder line and prominent wheel arches – which Subaru says expresses the reliability of its all-wheel drive, indicating that power will be sent to all four wheels – which house 19-inch rims wrapped in 235/40 section tyres. The rump gets a tailgate-mounted spoiler and combination wraparound tail lights that bear similarity to the headlights upfront.
Subaru has not revealed other technical specifications as the concept is mainly a design study.
