With the new Subaru Impreza the japanese firm is back with force to the compact segment. And what better way to do that with the icon par excellence of the brand. After several years of absence, partly covered by the all-way compact XV back to the brand to have a silhouette compact to compete on equal terms with the kings of the segment in Europe.
For their development Subaru has opted for the new platform modular global brand. It will be able to develop models from different segments and lengths. In addition, is specially designed to accommodate traditional mechanical (petrol and diesel), hybrid, or electric. This new platform provides to the model a torsional stiffness located between the 70 and 100 percent, to improve the dynamic behavior of the car and significantly reducing vibration and noise derived from the driving.
however, this new Subaru Printed is not only a pretty face with a skeleton as the last. With this model, the japanese brand released many of its technological innovations. The active safety system EyeSight improved substantially and will incorporate the warning of involuntary change of lane, the adaptive cruise control with braking autonomous emergency. To this, add it as an option, the monitoring of the dead corners of the car.
in Addition, together with the EyeSight will be available on the system with cross-traffic alert to avoid collisions when performing maneuvers at a standstill. Another of the elements that you will incorporate will be the new headlamps with led technology with smart beam or roadside assistance. With regard to connectivity inside Subaru will integrate the system Starlink that will be compatible with the devices Android Auto and Apple Car Play.
with Respect to its range of mechanical, Subaru has not yet clarified the engines that move this new generation of the Impreza. The reason is that they have not yet been defined one hundred percent of the markets in which it will be available and therefore we only know the range for the american market. As it is logical, his range only consists of engines boxer gasoline (and diesel if you should happen to certain european markets). The first of them is a 2.0 direct injection petrol with 155 hp coupled to the system of all-wheel drive SAWD (Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive) and the change Lineartronic CVT brand.
as we approach its arrival to the market and confirm your arrival or not to the Spanish market, we have more data of equipment, prices and range mechanics.
