Subaru appears to be taking its popular (and least-expensive) all-wheel-drive compact to a whole new level with the recent release of the 5-Door Concept at the recent bi-annual 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The four- (passenger) door hatchback’s sleek lines and rounded nose represent a significant improvement on the Impreza’s already good looks. Although what rests beneath the hood remains a closely guarded secret, The Spy Guy hears that a turbocharged four-cylinder engine option will most likely find a home there and is the best way to improve horsepower with a mind for good fuel economy. You’ll probably see this Subie in showrooms by early 2017.
