Radical facelift for Subaru's rally-bred saloon, but mechanics remain largely unchanged
7 June 2005

Subaru’s latest Impreza facelift has been revealed, and the company’s new-style grille takes the Scooby into more radical territory.

The new car is coming to the UK in October, following a Japanese launch this month. There will be few engineering upgrades – the 2005 update already has a wider track and longer wheelbase – but there will be a power increase, although figures have yet to be confirmed.

The new nose was first seen on the B9 Scrambler at 2003’s Tokyo Motor Show, before making it to production on the R1 city car and B9 Tribeca 4x4.
