Auto Express is reporting that Subaru's replacement plans for its Impreza involve a radical hatchback, which may look like the B5 concept (pictured) the company will be unveiling at the Tokyo motor show this year. The new Impreza, set to be launched in mid-2007, AE says, will mark Scooby's move up-class, with build quality reportedly rivaling Audi's supporting radical new styling cues. The car will also get Subaru's new, turbo-supported hybrid-drive system, the Turbo Parallel Hybrid (TPH), which is based on the company's 2.0-liter boxer engine. The system is being touted as offering a notable boost in both horsepower and torque. Stay tuned, kids. [Thanks to Denis for the tip.]
