The 2012 Subaru Impreza. Not exactly the Impreza Concept

You wait ages for Scooby story to come along, and then two turn up at once.

Yesterday we had the news that the Subaru WRX STI is getting a power upgrade for free until the end of June in an attempt to shift more metal, and now Subaru give us a single image of the 2012 Subaru Impreza which will be revealed at the New York Motor Show this month.

We must admit we did think when we saw the email come in that the photo of the 2012 Scooby would be of a car that looked very much like the stunning Subaru Impreza Concept from last year’s LosĀ AngelesĀ Motor Show. Sadly, it seems not.

What we get is a very tame version which seems to have had all the joy sucked out of it. It seems more like a slightly updated version of the existing car rather than a production version of the Impreza Concept. Which is disappointing.

But maybe we’re being unfair. Subaru has told us very little – it’s 4WD, 4 or 5 door, more commodious and more frugal – and that’s about it. So it could be the photo they’ve sent us is just a bad angle.

But why would you tease your appeal with your worst side?
