What We Were Expecting: A sporty 2017 Impreza with a powerful engine.

At the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, Subaru unveiled an Impreza concept model. The concept was presented as an introduction to Subaru’s new Subaru Global Platform that would define upcoming models.

This design was sporty and aerodynamic with a powerful stance.

Subaru’s new Subaru Global Platform will highlight the following:

  • Driving pleasure: Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel drive and driver assist technology

  • Agility: A stronger structure and better handling.

  • Crash protection: Upgraded EyeSight® technology features.

  • Ride comfort: Premium multimedia features and a quiet cabin.

What We Got: The 2017 Impreza has a new sporty design, more engine power and offers a relaxing driving experience.

The 2017 Impreza is Subaru’s first model representing the Subaru Global Platform. Driver’s will enjoy it’s sporty, aerodynamic exterior design and strong, solid build.

This new straight-line stability gives the 2017 Impreza a 50% reduced body roll compared to the 2016 Impreza. With a stiffer structure and optimized cross sections, the 2017 Impreza offers drivers agility, a quiet cabin and even more stability.

Agility – a phrase more often reserved for performance vehicles – is a big part of the new platform.” - AutoBlog

In addition to an upgraded structure and design, the 2016 Impreza features several hazard-avoidance technologies and multimedia features for an overall relaxing drive.
