My, how the 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX (http://www.autoblog.com/model/wrx) has grown. The plucky little sedan has gone off to summer camp and returned as a full-figured looker. Now donning its bigger sister's widebody (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/11/03/sema-preview-classic-design-concepts-group-2-widebody-challenge/) dress and uprated wheels at all four corners, there are few tells this thing isn't fully capable of stopping at a moment's notice. And all we can say is: It's about time.

Even though the WRX has always had plenty of pep and other worldly grip, its outer shell never quite managed to hint at the go-fast fun lurking underneath its sizable hood scoop. No more.
