Subaru dropped another Impreza concept on us at the Los Angeles Auto Show on Wednesday. The company says it will be the first example of its next-generation vehicles, which will be using a modular platform. We’ve seen this concept evolve for a few years now. We first saw the WRX concept in New York in 2013, then we saw the five-door Impreza concept in Tokyo earlier this month. With each showing the car gets a little bit closer to production. The new Impreza wears the company’s “Dynamic x Solid” design language, which Subaru says “not only hints at the new Impreza design, but also future models.” We don’t have too much to go on here. Subaru says it improved aero performance by blending style and function; the front gets the hawk-eye headlights and a hexagonal grille, the flared fenders increase the visual width and 19-inch wheels sit flush with the wheel arches. In back, character lines flow to the taillights, which now share the same basic styling as the headlights.
C-HR concept is ‘perfect for Yuccies,’ whatever those are Scion took notes from young urban creative customers when designing the C-HR concept for the Los Angeles Auto Show. What the designers got from these notes is the mantra for the new concept: "Polarizing is OK. Boring is not." The acronym for this concept stands for Compact size and High Ride height -- or as most others would call call it, a crossover. The Scion brand is on the hunt for young urban creatives, or "yuccies," which is arguably the worst name given to any young urban group since the creation of the word "yupster."
