Subaru Impresses with Upgraded Impreza

When Subaru unveiled the Impreza concept unit in 2015, the reception has been lukewarm. Given the impressive list of compact sedans like the Ford Focus, the Chevrolet Cruze and the Mazda 3 over the years, it is not entirely surprising that the product of the Tokyo-based automaker ranks in the lower echelon of the vehicle industry.

However, the recent entry of the 2017 Subaru Impreza has provided the Japanese car manufacturer a considerable market boost. Enhancements have focused on the outmoded multi-media system and the crude engine mechanism.

Subaru's upcoming unit has a couple of noteworthy procedures bolstering its resurgence. Primarily, the new Impreza has been made in the United States. Second, the car is built on the company's sophisticated Global Platform approach.

The 2017 Subaru Impreza will be released in hatchback and sedan versions. Both variants have been extended up to 1.6 inches in length. The firm's decision to include the hatchback may come close to being phenomenal considering that sixty percent of the company's sales are attributed to that version.

Although the Impreza has been fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, sport-tuned suspension and effective torque vectoring, the vehicle is not fully a sport compact unit. However, Subaru will be venturing towards a WRX design that will become the true sporty type.

The sedan version of the 2017 Subaru Impreza is a lot faster than the firm's previous models. Within 9 seconds, the car is able to hit 60mph. A quarter mile is covered under 17 seconds at 85.3mph. Meanwhile, the hatchback attains 60mph in 9.2 ticks. At 83.9mph, a quarter mile is covered in 17.1 seconds.

The Subaru Impreza is equipped with an independent suspension procedure that has control arms in the rear plus struts upfront. Due to this, the new Subaru unit can be managed better compared to the Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla units. The process involves squaring out the handling and riding approaches.

With a 2-liter flat-four engine under its hood, the 2017 Subaru Impreza is able to gain 4hp than its predecessor. The car is considerably powerful since it is able to unload 152hp with 145 pound-feet of torque.

Although the vehicle does not have an attractive exterior design, it makes up for it in the cabin where extra legroom for passengers and baggage is made available. Moreover, an improved Starlink infotainment system with 8-inch screens and navigation platform is also in place.
