The newly-redesigned Subaru Impreza has gone on sale here. The Japanese carmaker says it offers Subaru’s promise of driving fun, all-around safety, and above-average resilience.
The new Impreza features the new Subaru global platform and significant enhancement to the body and chassis rigidity, which it says offers unprecedented levels of driving pleasure, agility, crash protection and ride comfort.
Pricing start at €25,995 for the new 1.6i S CVT automatic, rising to €29,995 for the 1.6i SE Lineartronic CVT automatic.
The new Impreza comes in two trim levels for Irish buyers, the S and SE, both of which Subaru says offer very generous levels of standard equipment.
S models are equipped as standard with ‘eyesight’, adaptive cruise control, heated front seats, auto air conditioning, a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, incorporating audio, and smartphone connectivity. The system also incorporates ‘Subaru StarLink’ and ‘Apple CarPlay’ and is ‘Android Auto’ compatible.
The 1.6L Port injection NA Engine is now about 12kg lighter. Subaru says it improves rigidity, reduces vibration and noise while the extensive weight reductions improve steering and give better handling. It adds that this new engine keeps the agile driving of previous models while making driving more comfortable, stable, and quiet.
