For 2006 the Subaru Impreza was restyled to reflect the new brand identity. The new Subaru signature front-end design for the Impreza features a three-section mesh-type grill inspired by the company’s aircraft heritage, plus boldly styled headlights with smoke-tinted lenses. Sedan models feature revised wide-body fenders, while the wagons have their own flared fender design, as on the previous model. All 2006 Impreza models got a new tail lamp cluster design, as well.

The 300-horsepower Impreza WRX STI gained a further edge in all-wheel drive performance for 2006. The power distribution ratio in its advanced Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) version of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has been changed from 35:65 to 41:59 and uses a new mechanical limited slip center differential in place of the previous hydraulically controlled unit. The addition of a steering sensor to the differential’s control inputs further enhances torque transfer and overall performance of the AWD system.

The 2006 WRX STI also featured a new roof vane spoiler, as used on the Impreza WRC rally car. This contributes to stability at track speeds. As well as a new rear underbody diffuser and a new side sill spoiler. The lower-profile hood scoop from the standard WRX aids forward visibility but maintains airflow to the intercooler due to the improved aerodynamics of the redesigned front-end. The WRX STI also gains daytime running lights (DRL).
