The folks at KGP snapped up a few shots of the new STI making the prerequisite rounds at the 'Ring, and although the camo is thick, you can make out some of the characteristics that will distinguish it as the top dog in the Impreza lineup.
First, out front, the grille has been replaced with a mesh insert, while a restyled fascia seems to protrude further down and out than the standard vehicle. Fender flares on all four corners should increase both the track and the visual prowess, however the rear wing isn't the Cessna-sized aerofoil that we'd expected. Additionally, a set of dual exhaust tips are poking out from behind the right side of the bumper.

Winding Road has a few more high res pics available for your viewing pleasure here.

      Am I the only one who is a little depressed that this car is not in sedan form anymore. It's something about 4 door hatch backs that just makes me throw up a little in my mouth.

      It's nice... I guess. I'm hoping they can a 2 door... errr, 3 door hatch. That's all I want, BMW let me down, this could be a nice replacement, please don't make me buy a VW.

      I hope Subaru makes a STI Impreza Sedan and brings the STI Legacy over! the hatchback prototype impreza i dont like. I dont like hatchbacks or wagons. It is all about Sedans and Coupes baby!

        LOL. "Didn't you get the memo?"

      Dont worry AB. I'm sure some aftermarket shop will make you a wing to compensate for ....something.

      That they are keeping with a smaller wing means they are not going to play to the poseur crowd and will keep with the competition crowd.
