Subaru to Update its Lineup to help welcome the Toyobaru Coupe into the fold

Besides adding its upcoming unnamed coupe to the lineup, Subaru might be working to get a bit pep lower back in its step with the aid of bringing out some new designs over the next few years. What can we anticipate from the all-wheel drive anti-SUV brand? Autoweek had an thrilling article charting the upcoming adjustments in Subaru's lineup.

Starting with the chunky-monkey Legacy and Outback models that are relatively new, the only update to be expected is a mild refresh/facelift coming in the next three or four years.

Hopefully Subaru will determine on a corporate face that does not appear like 'meh' and throw it on those two, because proper now they're as beige as a Camry. I imply, if Volvo and Audi could make their crossover cars (the Cross Country and Allroad) look cool, why can not Subaru?

Next is the Forester; if all goes according to plan, this fall will see the 2011 Forester available with Subaru's more efficient next-gen 2.5-liter boxer engine. We can expect major styling updates in the next two or three years. Also, though possibly limited to Australia, there could be a hi-po 300+ horsepower Forester coming down the line that would utilize the STI's 2.5-liter mill. Speaking of Imprezas...

After the recent revival of the STI sedan for 2011, the Impreza model line is expected to get a full redesign for 2012. Consumers should also look for a possible hybrid using Toyota technology. In my opinion, the Impreza is another car that's screaming for a little more character. Like the Legacy/Outback, what we need here is a decent shnoz and some family traits, not just big wings and fat fenders on highline models to make up for middle-of-the-road styling.

Unsurprisingly, the Tribeca crossover has yet to get another generation confirmed. After its original debut as one of the ugliest things on the road, the crossover thankfully got enough of a Jennifer Aniston nose job to make it bearable to look at.

Now, but, sales do not seem to be justifying bringing it lower back for some other spherical. For 2012 there should be some mild updates within the shape of trendy alternatives and whatnot, however the ones looking ahead to a 2nd-era Tribeca shouldn't maintain their breath. This is a case wherein Subaru must just mess around with the Forester, offer 7-seats in it, after which eliminate this version pronto.

Lastly, the most anticipated Subaru in a generation: the so-called Toyobaru Coupe. The new 2-door, which has been co-developed alongside Toyota's rear-wheel drive FT-86 coupe, should be getting an engine lineup similar to the Impreza's.

Look for a 2.0-liter obviously aspirated four-cylinder and in all likelihood a slightly de-tuned model of the STI's rapid-4. All-wheel pressure remains unconfirmed, however one factor is for rattling positive: as soon as all-wheel force isn't supplied on a rally-like-combating toddler Scooby like this, the dilution of the brand has long gone from "feasible" to "going on proper now".
