2018 Subaru Impreza is a Small Car with Big Value
February 28, 2019
The 2018 Subaru Impreza may be a small car, but it comes with big value – and an even wider selection of trims to provide the perfect vehicle for you.
All in all, the 2018 Impreza is offered in a dynamic range of eight variants: with two body styles (sedan and hatch) and four different trims. All eight variants are powered by the same 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed flat four Boxer engine, driven by Subaru’s world-renowned Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Continuous Variable Transmission. Peak power reaches a maximum of 115kW with torque reaching 196Nm.
Subaru Global Platform
One of the most exciting additions to the 2018 Impreza is that it sits on the new Subaru Global Platform, for which the company reportedly invested at least $1 billion into research and development. Improvements to the chassis include higher rigidity, greater strength, lighter weight, better rolling resistance, more responsive steering and improved suspension. The revised body also has enhanced collision energy absorption efficiency compared to the previous models thanks to improved stabilizers, as well as a smoother, quieter cabin when compared to previous models. This means the new Subaru Impreza is not only a blast to drive, but also safer.
All Wheel Drive Rally Car Pedigree
The 2018 Impreza’s low centre of gravity, sharp handling and electric power steering make it a dream to drive on windy roads or tight corners, while Subaru’s trademark Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive makes it suitable for more rugged terrains or inclement weather conditions. The vehicle’s seven-step Continuous Variable Transmission zips along smoothly, and tailors itself to offer peak performance whether in the city, suburbs or driving at highway speeds.
