Subaru, which has yet passed 100,000 copies of the Impreza last year in the US, was cautious with the design of this new generation and chose a rather conservative trait. The Japanese manufacturer was not as radical as one might think in the changes. Otherwise, the manufacturer remained very discreet. The Subaru Impreza is again proposed as a four-door sedan and a hatchback five-door model. For the rest, Subaru is still quite mysterious about her craft. One thing is certain however: the Impreza will be based on a completely new platform, the Subaru Global Platform.
Under the hood, there is an improved version of the Impreza engine FB 2016. This 4-cylinder ‘boxer’ (horizontally opposed flat) 2.0L swapped sequential multiport injection for a direct injection system which provides it with other improvements, a slight increase in power. It goes from 148 to 152 hp. However, the manufacturer has not specified torque produced by this engine.
Finally, Subaru proudly introducing an ultra-connected multimedia system and a stereo camera that can handle the ad adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane change monitoring with active correction heading, supervision blind spot, etc. In short, the brand finally catching competition, what.
