Subaru debuted their 2008 Impreza at the NYC auto show today. Autoblog has some great coverage of the launch, including an impressive gallery of photos.
Here's a picture of the WRX 5-door:
Which confirms a story that I had discounted earlier claiming that the STi would look like this:
It's been confirmed that Subaru will be racing the 5-door version of the car in the World Rally Championship. This follows the move of most of the other manufacturers like Peugeot and Citroen who also campaign compact 5-door models.'
I don't like the continued softening of the lines for this model. The front grill and headlight treatment look very tacked-on, and the overall appearance is not very imposing.
