Everything we know about the new Impreza SedanPosted On March 31, 2016
The modern Impreza has earned a place in the hearts and minds of drivers since it was first introduced back in 1992. Offered in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive drivetrains with body types that included a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback/wagon, replacing the Leone, a car that, for a time, was the only vehicle sold internationally by Subaru.
The latest model Impreza has been carefully updated to offer drivers an exceptional experience thanks to advancements in technology backed by a stylish look that certainly steps up its game. More than that, the newest member of the Impreza family is setting new standards thanks to a sedan body, which will include a hybrid option – as before, all Impreza models will be equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a contribution to the driving experience that definitely ups the ante across the market by ensuring drivers have more control, comfort, and opportunities.
Core concepts to take note of on the new Impreza are the Boxer engine, EyeSight, and hawk-eye headlights that come together to form a sculpted body sure to impress.
At 2670 mm, the new Impreza is 25 mm higher than the previous generation, in addition to being 38 mm wider. Check out the 2.0i Sport Impreza model for a more refined driving experience thanks to Active Torque Vectoring and suspension tuning. Standards include LED daytime running lights, keyless access and push-button start options, and elevated features that add a dash of the premium level without asking you to pay for it – like leather-wrapped steering wheel and CVT shifting – all of this from a vehicle line that has consistently impressed drivers across the world.
Under the hood you’ll welcome the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder Boxer engine, a direct fuel injection marvel that ups the game to 152 horsepower from the previous model’s 148. Choosing the Lineartronic CVT means you get an optimized 7-speed manual mode function vehicle with paddle shifters and accolades like IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK+ recognition.
EyeSight systems on select models come with Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Pre-Collision Braking, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and much more. The new Impreza truly is a remarkable addition to the Subaru family and goes to show that the team behind it knows what they were doing.
