This compact car was originaly launched in 1992 as replacement of Leone model. So far, we have seen four generations of this model, but it look like that will be changed. Next year we are going to see new Impreza as 2016 year model. Unlike WRX, which’s design was a big disappointment, new Impreza will follow the styling of WRX concept, which was presented a couple of years ago. Beside new styling, it is expected that new model will get many improvements all aspects, so you should expect that 2016 Subaru Impreza will come with new improved interior, better engines and much more.
2016 Subaru Impreza redesign
As we said, new model will be hugely inspired by WRX concept. We expect many implementations from this concept on 2016 Subaru Impreza. New model will use new platform, which is called Subaru Global Platform. This modular chassis architecture will soon be used for all Subaru models, but the first one will be this one. It will use design cues from the concept and, according to chief designer Mamoru, 2016 Impreza will have much lower section below the hip line a wider, bolder lower body and a more tapered greenhouse just like WRX concept.
2016 Subaru Impreza possible engine updates
The attractive, modern look is not enough, if new model wants to be competitive to other cars. Although there is no official information, we expect that 2016 Subaru Impreza will get either new engines or at least improved current ones. If we consider that arch rival, 2016 Honda Civic will new, advanced engines with an output of 143/205 horsepower, it is clear that Subaru can’t compete without some improvements. So, we expect that new model will have engine similar amount of power. When it is about transmission, we don’t expect changes for now, which means that you will have a choice between 6-manual and CVT automatic transmission in new Impreza.
2016 Subaru Impreza release date and price
The launch date of 2016 Subaru Impreza is still unknown, so you will have to wait for upcoming information. When it is about price, it is expected than it will be similar to current model, which means that base model will go around 20.000 dollars.
