I'm surprised there was no discussion here on this next-gen Impreza. It looks like a great update to me. Especially compelling is the higher mpg (up to 36 EPA highway), more rear seat room, and the upgraded interior materials. The exterior styling is ho-hum, like a 4/5 scale Legacy, but not offensive.
I am looking forward to driving the new Impreza when it arrives at dealerships. If it retains the smooth ride from the current Impreza and the interior and fuel economy are as advertised, this could be my next car after the lease on my Sentra is up.

With the improved back seat room and excellent MPG, the Impreza hatch might take some Forester sales. For those of us who used to drive Legacy GT wagons it stirs memories.
I wonder whether the new mirrors fold?

For those who may not have seen these, there are a lot of good images of the new 2012 Impreza here.

The interior is greatly improved. The dash is now nicely padded, as are the sun visors and the upper door sills, plus there's now a Limited trim with leather seats.
So in effect, the Impreza's customer range is now much broader, in that it still addresses the bargain shopper with the base model, yet now also attracts more of a luxury buyer with the Limited. BTW, the CVT is standard in the Limited.
The sedan pictured here is the Limited, and the 5-door pictured is the mid-level Premium model.

That's not a discussion... it's a thread of a discussion.

subaru.com says "this fall", so that puts it sometime between mid-September and mid-December. Since they still have 2011s to sell, we probably won't get more details on a date until closer to delivery. Have you asked your local dealer about a date? Maybe they are starting waiting lists.
