Autoexpress has deployed their spies into the heart of Fuji Heavy Industries and have come out with confirmation that a duo of the venerable Impreza is due for release within the next year.

The UK will see a five-door hatch, with a traditional sedan to follow after the initial launch. Design influences will come from the B5 concept (pictured) that debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show this past October. Naturally, power will find its way to all four wheels, getting the required momentum from the brand's trademark boxer-four.

Whether or not the Turbo Parallel Hybrid version, shown off at the Detroit Auto Show in January, will come to fruition is another matter. The concept hasn't been heard of since, so we are assuming that a production version isn't in the cards anytime soon. Although the prospect of a gravel rooster-tail in a hybrid rally car makes our salivary glands work overtime.

Expect to see a finished version of the new Impreza at the Geneva show next spring.
