The Los Angeles Auto Show is almost here and we are anticipating the participation of Subaru. Little has been said till now about their plans for the show. The Japanese automaker has recently released a teaser image of what they call the Concept in Motion (CIM). The word is that this is actually a lightly veiled version of the next-generation Impreza, and that's just enough to get excited about (think next STI).
The design has the appearance of a coupe, but this can easily end up as false (just look at the 2011 Elantra's shape). The image reveals the fenders, which are important parts of every Subaru. If this indeed is the Impreza, there could be a production model in time for the Detroit Auto Show in January. At the latest, we'll have to wait for the New York Auto Show in April where the last Impreza was unveiled. The car will likely be offered as both a sedan and hatch and feature Subaru's all-new Boxer 4-cylinder engine. Photo displayed is the 2011 Subaru WRX STI
