And the preview sketch for the next Impreza 5-door, also to debut at the Tokyo show.

Subaru, you cruel... I swore I was done after WRX Design Concept, and Impreza Design Concept before that didn’t show to be anywhere NEAR the production versions. That was supposed to be the last knife wound in my back.

Now this? Now a 3-door compact CUV that LOOKS GREAT...

Oh, SNAP. That isn’t a 3-door... that is a 5-door with an articulated panel shifting hinge. (check out the last shot...)

You KNOW they aren’t going to be doing anything in the same solar system as this. And the next-gen Subarus are going to be under-powered, CVT-driven dullard appliances.

Looks like I am headed for another heartbreak... just like the classic power ballad says...
