Main Features of Impreza Sedan Concept
The front, sides, and rear are seamlessly joined in the “Dynamic x Solid” surface structure, creating a three-dimensional and solid body that is a feature of Subaru styling. The intriguing look is enhanced by well-placed character lines on the compact sedan. The design expression of Enjoyment and Peace of Mind, the value that Subaru provides to its customers, is fully pursued within the limits of the C-segment body size. In the area of functionality essential to a Subaru car, excellent aerodynamic performance is achieved while blending this functionality into the styling. The interior is highlighted by glossy-black accents offering a high-quality feel.
A wide and low stance communicates a familiar, sporty impression in the unified three-dimensional structure that extends from the hexagonal grille to the hawk-eye headlights, all indicative of Subaru’s identity. The front fascia plays the role of the starting point from which the front flows via the sides to the rear, with each part uniting into a solid form.
The strong character lines rise energetically toward the rear from the front fenders, through the door panels and rear shoulders, adding to the solid body appearance. The powerfully extended fender flares express the reliability of Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive.
The rear combination lights share the same motif as the headlights to express a wide and low stance. Sleek styling from the cabin toward the trunk lid enhances the sporty impression of the sedan style.
