JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT COULDN’T GET ANY BETTER…

Okay…no one ever accused the Subaru Impreza of being the world’s sexiest automobile. But the new, impressively-redesigned 2012 version is turning a lot of heads, as much for its good looks as its improved performance over its predecessors.

One can’t help but notice the exciting new styling of the fourth-generation Impreza with its sleek, athletic profile and muscular rear fascia. Subaru has also managed a striking optical illusion: the 2012 Impreza sedan and five-door models seem considerably larger than the prior generation while actually standing no longer or wider. How did they do it? By lowering the roof by a half-inch, shortening the overhangs, widening the front and rear tracks, and delivering a wheelbase that’s a whole inch longer.
