When automaker unveils a new model, we are expected to be surprised but in the case of the Subaru Impreza, having no surprise is actually good news since that means that they did stick to the concept.
Subaru revealed that the new Subaru Impreza will be based on the Subaru 5-Door concept that they showed off at the Tokyo Motor Show. We all liked what Subaru had to offer but we were also worried that the production model would end up looking nothing like the concept. We know Subaru is not afraid to go down that path.
Luckily, Subaru actually tried to stick as close to the concept as they can. They were a few minor upgrades but in general, the concept design was there.
Under the hood of the Subaru Impreza was a 2.0 liter flat four engine that will be delivering about 152hp. The previous model delivered about 148hp so that is a slight upgrade.
