Subaru is really growing in leaps and bounds! No better evidence than a frankly packed Tokyo stand from the once-humble maker of AWD mountain cars.
Joining the all-new VIZIV Future Concept on the stands is the also-new Impreza 5-Door Concept.
While the new WRX still feels very fresh, it is always good to take a sneak peek at the next-gen design vision for the product.
Since the WRX and Impreza lineups were formally divorced in this generation in the US, the XV Crosstrek has taken on a bit of an entry-level role in the Subaru range. But this is traditionally best occupied by a budget compact bearing the Impreza name.
This new model will be leaner than car’s lux and roomy siblings on price as well as pace — so its design is taking a firm step toward the future to create a unique market position for the 5-Door.
A production variant is perhaps a year off still, with the 5-Door not yet confirmed for the US or any markets outside Japan, the something of a ‘given’ for Impreza 5-Door sales as the home market of Subaru.
Also joining the JDM scene for 2016? The new S207 pack for the WRX STi, plus an even-more-hardcore and tasty NBR Challenge package. This special kit features a variety of stunning gloss-black aero pieces all around, contrasted with three color options for the hottest-yet road special of the current STi generation.
Check out the showfloor photos of the latest Subaru models below, plus the tech and equipment specs of the NBR Challenge pack toward the end of the page.
