Don’t like the current Subaru Impreza? We certainly don’t, at least in terms of how the hideous thing looks. Lucky for us then that our suffering will end come November as the new generation of Impreza is scheduled to hit showroom floors. So that means new WRX and STI models as well, right?
No. No it doesn’t.
In fact, according to Car & Driver, the current models of Subaru’s insane family sedan club will actually be sticking around for a while longer. A while longer as in an couple of years while longer while the new WRX & STI versions get fine tuned and tweaked enough to live up to their reputation. Subaru also says the gap is to give the base Impreza time to catch on and get some traction. Alright, whatever Mr. Businessman.
On the bright side, this lapse may give Subaru the time it needs to trim the extra weight off of the new Impreza model as the new generation pulled a Kirstie Alley and just got bigger. Oh damn- I forgot I can’t make those jokes anymore.
So for now, we’re stuck with the current WRX and STI that both insist “I stay, I stay.”
