Default New look for WRX !!!

Subaru has given the corporate grille treatment for their best known car the WRX. The new grille was first seen on the R2 & Tribeca SUV. Looks good and more importantly gives a car and the company a unique & strong identity like the euro brands.........rather than a generic Jap car design. Read on..........


The Impreza WRX STI now boasts a maximum engine torque of 422 Nm (43.0 kg/m), nearly perfecting its already outstanding performance and drivability. The model also features an improved version of the driver?s control center differential (DCCD), an electronically controlled All Wheel Drive (AWD) system that adds a torque-sensitive, mechanical limited-slip differential (LSD). Balancing high levels of maneuverability and stability, it embodies driving pleasure. Impreza?s exterior designs have been made more fully aerodynamic, in recognition of its participation in high-speed rally events and motor sport activities.

It does'nt look that agressive anymore.The earlier grille was much much better.This one looks too Alfa-Romeoish IMO.
Other than that,the car feels complete and more torquey ofcourse.

WELL........... that not a really a co-incidence. The guy who came up with Subaru's new look is Andreas Zapatinas, ex-AlfaRomeo Centro Stile in Milan and designer of the much lauded Alfa 147 & the Barchetta. This one looks mix of an upside down Alfa grille and a SEAT grille.
