Subaru Impreza WRX STI facelift promotional video

When the new Subaru front-end appeared on the B9 Tribeca, there was a lot of controversy over the way it looked. The face lift was supposed to imply Subaru's aircraft heritage, but most people didn't like it. On the 2006 Impreza, the "pig-nose" was toned down, but it still polarized the Subaru community....


I actually like the new look better. I had looked at the STI before, but when I went to an autoshow and took a close look at the oversized hood scoop I couldn't see myself driving it. When the new look offered a smaller hood scoop and HID headlamps, I was curious enough to take a second look. So while the face lift may have turned off old-time Subaru enthusiasts, I think it also attracted a whole new generation of Subaru fans like me.

There are rumors that there will be a new look in 2008 for the Impreza including a possible 2-door model and several artist renditions of possible candidates have been popping up here and there.
