The Impreza is one of the iconic sedans of the 20th century, offering not only great value for money but also great engines as well as a balanced chassis which is surely going to bring a smile to anyone driving it. Unfortunately the car aged with the current model being on the market for almost 5 years now. Luckily though it is going to get a massive update with the 2016 Subaru Impreza which is going to be a new car on the market.
2016 Subaru Impreza redesign
The most important 2016 Subaru Impreza changes will be the design. Subaru said that it might get the same design note as the concept Impreza shown back in 2013 which is great news because that was one of the best looking cars Subaru ever made. It is a four door coupe with aggressive lines, a really nice stance with a lot of nice touches. We are sure though that the production model which is most likely going to launch in 2016 will be a bit different, but it will retain some of those great design quotes for sure.
On the interior things are going to change for the better with better quality materials and a more lively design which the previous generation lacked. The space inside the cabin will also grown thanks to the bigger dimensions of the car. Just as we said before, its exterior is going to change the most with the new 2016 Subaru Impreza adopting the style of a coupe which would make it quite a perfect competitor for the new Lancer.
Subaru Impreza 2016 specs
Engine wise, the new 2016 Subaru Impreza will carry on a few engines as well as receive some new ones. The base 2.0-liter flat four from the American version is likely to stick in 2016, together with its CVT gearbox. There are big chances though that a brand new engine will come in its place some time in the future, which will most likely be a turbocharged 1.6 or 1.4-liter flat four. A top of the range 2.0-liter engine is also going to come on the STI, but unlike the previous model, it will use less fuel thanks to a new type of turbocharger. The best piece of news though is the possibility of a diesel in the US market which would put it high in the charts. The Subaru Impreza 2016 WRX STI model is likely to change the current 2.5-liter engine for a 2.0-liter twin-turbocharged one which would provide the same amount of power but it will use quite a bit less fuel.
2016 Subaru Impreza release date and price
We don’t know the price of the 2016 Subaru Impreza just yet but we can assume that it will come at a similar price to the ongoing model. Competition in this segment is high and we can expect that new Subaru Impreza 2016 will come to the market later this year with price range from $10,000 to $24,000.
