"The Impreza can boast of being the only model of this size that is equipped with four-wheel drive as standard." - The Telegraph Contributing Editor Chris Knapman
More Capable. More Resilient. More Rewarding.
Introducing the new Subaru Impreza. The fresh, dynamic exterior styling, premium interior finishes and cutting edge safety technologies are just the start. Built using innovative Subaru Global Platform, both the body and chassis have been entirely re-engineered, increasing strength and improving safety and handling. And now Impreza's proven combination of Subaru Boxer Engine, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is available in 1.6i or 2.0i configurations.
Subaru Impreza fuses bold design with driving capability, safety and control. Engineering and craftsmanship go hand in hand. An aerodynamic roof line allows for a spacious interior. The distinctive hexagonal grille flows through to the steering responsive LED headlights. Entry is keyless - a touch sensor on the driver's door handle opens and locks the car. Once the brake pedal is depressed, an interior button starts the engine.
Wherever you go, whatever you do, Impreza has you and your passengers covered. The cutting-edge Subaru Global Platform delivers a body that is 40% stronger, allowing the frame to absorb and safely dissipate more energy in the event of a collision. By increasing rigidity of the body, front suspension and rear subframe, the Subaru Impreza has enhanced straight-line stability and minimal body roll.
It’s a balancing act – maintaining your professional life, personal life, family, friends, passions and hobbies. There’s no reason why you can’t weave them all together when you have a Subaru in your life. With a solid connection to the road, the Subaru Impreza makes it that much easier to stay connected to your life. When you are less worried about the journey, you can focus on the destination. In rain, in snow, in sunshine. Do it all. And then some. Available in ice silver metallic, quartz blue pearl or crystal white pearl, the vehicle offers a stable, safe and enjoyable experience.
With ring shaped enforcement frames, the Impreza features frames with high tensile steep designs, for a strong and rigid, yet light in weight finish. Strengthened from the roof to the doors, pillars and floor, the cabin is designed to divert and dissipate energy away from the occupants in a collision.
With a fully intuitive voice recognition system, the vehicle enables its driver and passengers to interact with hands-free telephone and audio systems, for added ease on every journey. Featuring an illuminated metre, it helps to improve visibility when driving at night. The LCD centre display shows useful information such as which gear you are in, fuel gauge cruise control status and cruise speed, ensuring a comfortable journey. With a multifunction drive, and touch screen music selection control, you are shown a variety of information such as time, temperature and MPG, as well as having the ability to connect via your iPhone, smartphone or other mobile device via the USB or standard jack.
With a full intuitive entertainment programme to suit your needs, the Subaru starlink lets you use entertainment apps, grants access to news, weather, podcasts, audio books and more. Control it with its 7” touchscreen, multifunction steering wheel, or voice recognition, for the ultimate contemporary and classic finish.
Subaru's World Leading Driver Assist Technology.
At Subaru, we believe in all around safety. An important part of that is pre collision safety; making every effort to ensure an accident never happens. That's why we created EyeSight, Subaru's cutting edge driving support system. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, EyeSight uses two stereo cameras capturing three dimensional colour images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human eye. More accurate than traditional camera and sensor technologies, EyeSight uses images from both cameras to precisely determine shape, speed and distance, meaning it not only detects vehicles but also motorbikes, bicycles and pedestrians. When a potential hazard is identified, it warns the driver and even applies the brakes if necessary, to help avoid an accident. With excellent safety performance, EyeSight gives the driver ultimate peace of mind.
Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection includes Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Sensors placed at the rear of the vehicle alert you of vehicles in your rear blind spots for safer lane changes and can also warn you of potential collision danger when reversing out of a parking space. High Beam Assist increases visibility and safety when driving at night by automatically toggling the high beams on and off when oncoming traffic is detected. Design improvements have been made with the viewing angle of the driver in mind to offer better front and rear visibility. The Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and analyses if the vehicle is following the driver's intended course via an array of sensors. If a tyre slips or the vehicle begins to veer from it's intended path, the All Wheel Drive torque distribution, engine output, and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course. During an impact, the locking tongue limits movement in the seatbelt and reduces impact in the lower chest area to improve safety and reduce injury levels.
The lower centre of gravity design, enhanced suspension system, and rigidity improvements provide a vehicle that responds immediately when evasive actions are taken, helping you to avoid hazards on the road. In the event of a collision, the low mounted engine and gearbox are designed to both absorb the impact and drop safely below the passenger compartment, protecting occupants' legs. To allow for this movement, the cradle securing the engine is engineered to collapse, allowing the engine to slide downwards. The ring shaped Reinforcement Frame makes better use of high tensile steel panels and has been structurally redesigned for more efficient energy absorption from impacts in all directions. Front SRS airbags, front side SRS airbags, curtain SRS airbags, and a knee SRS airbag are standard on Impreza to give all passengers a higher level of protection in the event of a collision. Designed to enhance comfort and help the driver feel more planted for greater control, these seats can also help reduce the possibility of whiplash resulting from certain types of collisions.
Versatile Design. For The Things You Enjoy.
For work or play, Impreza offers ample space to take everything you'll need for the things you love to do. Whether it's a sporting fixture or a family trip, Impreza has the capability to transport passengers in comfort and equipment or luggage with ease. The luggage space for the Impreza is now 5 litres larger. With a bigger opening, wider compartment and 60/40 split folding rear seats, it's easily accessible - perfect for busy on-the-go lifestyles. Introducing a new level of refinement, Impreza reveals a quiet, roomy cabin rich in sculpted surfaces and careful attention to detail. Stitching and metallic inlays trace dynamic lines, complemented by metallic casings on the instrument panel, steering wheel and gearshift. Passengers enjoy generous, supportive front and rear seating - ideal for long journeys.
The interior of Impreza offers comfort for all passengers, with cup holders in the rear seat centre armrest. Featuring a redesigned, stylish front - the seating offers more support and comfort for a relaxing journey.
Subaru's core technologies define what makes a Subaru a Subaru - and the unique driving experience that only our vehicles can provide. These core systems enable Subaru vehicles to live up to the brand's exceptional standards of performance, comfort, safety, and reliability. They also underpin Subaru's promise to deliver both driving enjoyment and peace of mind.
The Subaru Impreza features a new 1.6 litre DOHC boxer engine, for a near-perfect symmetrical layout, delivery control and composure. With controlled cornering, improved traction in slippery conditions and enhanced acceleration, for a reliable design. The cabin protecting layout ensures a comfortable and safe devise, with a boxer engine and gearbox to break away and pass safely under the cabin in the event of a collision. With whiplash reducing front seats, energy absorbing head restraints and pretensioner’s seat belts, the Impreza assists in protecting its front occupants during a rear collision.
The engine is placed with the pistons 180 degrees apart, for a lower and flatter profile than that of other engine types, giving the overall vehicle a lower centre of gravity and an improved balanced distribution of weight, helping to reduce vibrations. This inherently rigid and self balancing flat design ensures the generation of less vibrations, for added durability and reliance. With DOHC and AVCS to enhance its performance, it delivers eager response at lower rpm, by combining response and exceptional efficiency, its an engine that will give you more fun with less fuel.
