Subaru stole the stage at the recent New York International Auto Show, where the automaker revealed the all-new 2017 Subaru Impreza, in both sedan and hatchback form, based on a new Subaru platform.
While Subaru may be best known for their SUVs, the Subaru Impreza has been a favorite among many since its inception. This new edition is sure to be no different, offering top-notch performance due to a low center of gravity and clever engineering.
We now know that the 2017 Subaru Impreza will be available in four trim levels – 2.0i base, Premium, Sport and Limited – with each trim level more advanced and feature-heavy than the last.
While we don’t know much about the new Impreza’s pricing, we do know that this model is set to hit dealerships by the end of the year. More information should soon be made public.
Until then, enjoy these images from the 2017 Subaru Impreza debut, and visit us anytime at Steve Lewis Subaru to check out our current selection of models!
Every automaker is looking to define what the future of the automotive market will be like. From vehicle concepts to new technology to green vehicles, innovation certainly isn’t lacking. Subaru took a different approach by introducing the next-generation Impreza at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Subaru Impreza Concept debuted in hatchback form at the Tokyo Auto Show in early November. Shortly after, Subaru showed off what the sedan would look like as well. Overall, we’re impressed.
From the front end’s angular styling to the scalloped character line that runs down the sides, the newest Impreza looks better than ever. This sports car hasn’t been lacking in style in recent years but the latest generation takes it to a new level.
The styling elements that were on display point towards the future design of all Subaru models come 2020. The next generation Impreza arrives at dealerships next year.
The Impreza is an important vehicle on Subaru’s lineup. Last year, 58,000 Imprezas left lots in addition to the 25,500 Impreza WRX performance models. Considering Subaru’s sales totaled about 282,000 units, the Impreza is a large mover.
Here at Steve Lewis Subaru, we can’t wait to see what the next-generation Impreza will look like in production form! If you’re looking for current Imprezas, check out our Impreza inventory!
The Impreza is getting the hybrid treatment in Japan, with plans to eventually bring a similar line state-side.
Subaru is looking at the greener side of life as the trend of fuel-efficient technology in Japan continues to rise. The Subaru Impreza Sport Hybrid officially joined the lineup in the Japanese market on July 10. The gas-electric model is the second hybrid offered in Subaru’s Japanese lineup.
While Subaru won’t be selling the Impreza Hybrid in North American any time soon, we’re hoping that this will change. In Subaru’s Japanese market, though, things are looking good for the automaker, which plans to sell 6,000 Impreza Sport Hybrids per year in Japan alone.
Sharing an electric all-wheel drive powertrain with the Subaru XV Hybrid, the Impreza Hybrid will help improve fuel efficiency across the brand’s lineup. The Impreza and XV hybrid models both get about 48 mpg, although the Japanese equivalent isn’t equal to an official United States EPA rating.
Starting next year Subaru plans to convert its gasoline engines to direct injection. By 2020, Subaru is scheduled to add cylinder deactivation and lean combustion cycles to further improve fuel economy.
Subaru currently sells the XV Crosstrek Hybrid in North America. A plug-in hybrid is also in the works, but won’t reach North American shores in 2018.
