According to the UK's AutoExpress, the next Impreza will have a drastically redesigned fascia that won't likely remind certain writers of certain, er, body parts. The new model's getting a complete refiguring, likely to be consistent with the company's B5 concept. Gone will be former design boss Andreas Zapatinas's polarizing grill, and β€” judging from two spec images from AW's artists β€” it'll be replaced with a more conventional face and more highly sculpted haunches. A new boxer diesel engine will debut at the same time. Still no word on the WRX, yay or nay.
