IMO the silver sedan is a step forward. I was expecting more of a teardrop shaped headlights, but if that the path Prodrive decides lets just hope HID's are available on high end Imprezas. Also the grill and hoodline needs to laydown/layback some more [it might be ok as is when I seen it in person]; that vertical grill theme still makes the front end look too squared off.
I can live with the rearend it sorta rounds off the back. I hope that spoiler is an option, as with the sunroof.

On second thought, they might not be able to lower the hood further because of the radiator height, cross support, and all the other thingies in the grill area. I suspect not enough time to re-engineer mechanical tidbits, since this was an emergency re-skin only to increase sales at home, and everywhere else except NA.

Maybe "pulling" forward the bottom of the grill area over the bumper [a la V5/6 grill] could achieve a more layed down look.
