Correct. Most enthusiasts will spend the extra few thousand and buy a WRX or BRZ. I did and told myself the entire time that the WRX was practical and fun. Wish I got the hatch!!!

I don’t think the new Impreza will ever be turned into a WRX or STI model. I think this new car is the beginning of a separation of the nasty sports car and the everyday driver.

Maybe in the future they will make a turbo 1.8L with 148hp for the standard Impreza and keep the WRX and STI the nasty 2.5L turbo. I think If they do that they can use the STI chassis and the Impreza engine to develop the next generation Subaru Rally and still be able to keep the performance/economy people respectively happy while fitting into the WRC regulations. We will see…
