2012 Subaru Impreza

New for 2012, the Subaru Impreza has the right mix of style and performance.

With a design that arrests onlookers, the new Subaru Impreza is one of the deals on wheels. Modern from the outset, Subaru designers and engineers have fashioned one of the most highly developed vehicles on the road. The startling new Subaru Impreza design is awe inspiring. With its clean aggression set into the car’s fluent style, the exterior is an artwork that captures a prominent new headlight design, bold new grille design, side skirts, rounded haunches and a squat, low profile presence.

Brimming with plenty of the latest electronic gadgetry, the Subaru Impreza is a spectacular drive. Subaru’s sporting DNA runs deeply under the car’s skin, with the latest AWD wizardry enabling the car to pitch and turn with copious levels of traction on all road surfaces. The AWD system is a Symmetrical All Wheel Drive system that can transfer power to any wheel with the greatest amount of traction. Controlling any lack of traction is easy with onboard electronics. The car is always working for you to give you an inspiring and nimble drive whatever the weather and road conditions may be.

Most Impreza buyers will not opt for the WRX’s out-and-out power, so what’s available once the WRX is stroked off the list? Plenty…there are many versions available that provide Sedan and Hatch shapes. Standard versions use a boxer engine boasting a receptive 110 kW engine that puts this power out at 6200 rpm. This equates to a delightful engine that loves to fox trot through the engine revs at pace. Peak torque is a weighty 196 Nm that is available at 4200 rpm. In real time terms, you’ll enjoy the way the boxer engine can nip past slower traffic at highway speeds.

Knee-knocking performance is left to the Subaru Impreza WRX which drives like a stealth bomber – it can attack at any instant: pre-corner, mid-corner or on the exit – and it absolutely loves it. Like the WRX, the standard Subaru Impreza models have trade mark attacking grip and resilient brakes.

Glide into the modern Subaru Impreza interior, and you’ll find that your quick orientation about the Impreza cabin is simple and easy. Snazzy switches and knobs, elegant dash curves and cosy seating with good head and shoulder room generates an inviting interior for all Impreza occupants. Electric windows stream up and down, and friendly pedal positioning and switchgear orientation make for great ergonomics. There is loads of standard stuff inside the smallest Soobie. A single CD player that has the latest MP3/WMA/iPod compatibility, USB Connection, an auxiliary jack for other electronic devices, voice command, Bluetooth wireless technology, a premium Multi-Function Display unit with a crystal clear display screen in the central dash area, DataDotTM technology and an immobiliser security system go along way to generating the perfect match.

Packed with five-star ANCAP safety, the Subaru Impreza is one of the safest small cars on the road. Not only do you have seven SRS3 airbags, but Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a Vehicle Dynamics Control system, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, a ring-shaped safety cell to help protect occupants and a rear view reverse camera make a huge difference to you and your family’s safety.

You’ll find the new Subaru Impreza is fuel efficient because the Stop/Start engine technology makes a real difference around town. The 2-litre petrol engine turns out a handy combined fuel economy figure of 6.8 litres/100 km.
