NASIOC forum member Lone Wolf 75 was at Raven's Stadium recently and spotted a pack of new Imprezas
apparently getting ready for some type of focus group ride-and-drive. Besides the base Impreza and WRX
sedan, he saw a hatch with a roof rack and revised front end. It is most likely the new Outback
Sport. As other members had pointed out, it has a different grille with a chrome strip at the top, thinner chrome sides and an elongated drop in the bottom section of the grille. Much like the STi, but with a different mesh-patterned insert. It also sports the new front fascia, over-fenders and restyled rockers of previous Outbacks in a contrasting silver color. The two-tone look is a bit debatable, making the car look like a mismatched mule rather than a production model, but the overall package is tasteful. We had seen the back and side
before, but this is our first look at the Outback-ed front end.
