The all-new 2017 Impreza debuts Subaru’s Global Platform architecture, which is designed to deliver significantly higher levels of driving pleasure, agility, crash protection and ride comfort.
Impreza is equipped as standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a boon to driving agility and traction.
The roomier 2017 Impreza models also debut Subaru’s new design language and new driver-assist technology. Multimedia features including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and standard Near Field Communication connectivity debut on Impreza. The 2017 Impreza is available in base, Premium, Sport and Limited trims.
Subaru’s new design language puts the brand’s signature hexagonal grille and hawk-eye headlights onto a more sculptural body, its athletic stance accentuated by prominent wheel arches and flowing lines. The dramatic look carries into the cabin.
Impreza’s platform incorporates new frameworks with optimized cross sections and highly stiffened joints between structures to significantly enhance straight-line stability, agility and ride comfort while suppressing noise, vibration and harshness.
Taking full advantage of the new, stiffer platform and more powerful engine, the Impreza 2.0i Sport, now available as a sedan as well as a five-door, delivers a more fun-to-drive performance feel thanks to exclusive suspension tuning, 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels and Active Torque Vectoring.
A revised 2.0-liter, four-cylinder Boxer engine gains direct fuel injection and other enhancements to boost both performance (now 152 horsepower versus 148 before) and drivability. In highline trims, the Lineartronic continuously variable transmission features a seven-speed manual mode function with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
