Subaru is pleased to announce that the all-new Impreza will be unveiled at the 67th Frankfurt International Motor Show on 12 September.
Having debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show, the 2017 Subaru Impreza has been completely redesigned inside and out, from upgraded in-car technology and a more spacious interior to its sleek new body design.
The new Subaru Impreza, which comes in Hatchback (5-door) and Sedan versions, is seen in the Wide & Low stance with its sporty impression, and in the unified three-dimensional structure extending from the hexagonal grille that symbolizes the Subaru identity to the hawk-eye headlights. The front face plays the role of starting point from which the front flows via the sides to the rear, with each part uniting into a solid form.
The rich inflection of the character line extending from the front fender to the door panels and rear shoulder, and the line rising energetically toward the rear from the lower door panel, give dynamism to the solid body surface. Meanwhile, the powerfully extended fender flares express the reliability of Subaru All-wheel Drive.
From the rear, the combination lights share the same motif as the headlights to express a Wide & Low stance. The sedan body’s sleek styling from cabin toward trunk lid enhances the sporty impression. On the 5-Door body, a tightened cabin through the rear combination lights and powerful looking shoulder silhouette enhance the sporty impression of the nimble 5-Door style.
Moving inside, the combination of sporty and advanced design and sophisticated construction delivers an interior that far surpasses its class. The spacious design flows from the instrument panel through the door trim for a feeling of refinement. Furthermore, the seats’ structures that are made more fitting to the bodies of passengers have been revamped to far surpass the quality of its class.
Impreza has been built to be safe and secure with a fun driving experience, and comes equipped with Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and Boxer engine. Impreza is the second model to launch on the Subaru Global Platform and has an 5mm lower center of gravity than outgoing Impreza, improving handling stability, hazard avoidance and increasing steering response.
New safety features are fitted as standard including EyeSight, Subaru’s advanced driver assist technology. The new iteration aims to offer world-class collision safety for total peace of mind and an engaging driving experience.
Across the globe, the new Impreza was awarded Japanese Car of the Year in December 2016. Impreza has also received high safety scores at the crash safety evaluations in the regions where tests have been conducted. In the US, Impreza made the Wards 10 Best Interiors list for interior design and styling, and for its easy-to-use multimedia system.
The Impreza model was first launched in 1992. Since then, approximately 2.5 million units have been sold worldwide.
