Subaru will do exactly that next week at the Los Angeles Auto Show, with the sixth-generation Impreza to arrive at U.S. dealers for the 2024 model year. The first teaser photo depicts the hatchback’s silhouette, which features a similar roofline and similar hard points to the outgoing model.
The second teaser photo, just published by Subaru’s U.S. division, gives us a better look at the redesigned front end. Clearly a higher-tier grade based on the intricate design of the front grille, black-finished garnish under the headlights, and full-LED headlights, the pictured vehicle gives off 2024 Ford Mustang vibes due to the hexagonal-shaped grille design.
Subaru is expected to follow the tried-and-tested formula of the current generation, namely standard all-wheel drive and four-cylinder boxer muscle. A continuously variable transmission is certain to happen as well because it’s not as complex as a torque-converter automatic box.
CVTs are inherently better in terms of fuel consumption to boot. As for the five-speed manual of the outgoing Impreza, here’s hope Subaru yanks it out in favor of a six-speed unit, which is the norm for quite a few years now.
Subaru of America will take the veils off the 2024 model year Impreza on Thursday, November 17th. The livestream will be cohosted by professional skateboarder and rallycross driver Bucky Lasek and his daughter Paris.
