2012 Subaru Impreza teased for NY debut

 2012 Subaru Impreza teased for NY debut
2012 Subaru Impreza - 6.4.2011

Will deliver up to 36 mpg

Subaru has released the first picture of the redesigned Impreza, ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show.

Available in four- and five-door body styles, the new Impreza appears to be a vast improvement over its homely predecessor as it features elegant styling with chrome accents, a kinked rear window and muscular wheel arches. Furthermore, Subaru says the car will have a "roomier interior and improved levels of comfort and refinement."

Power will likely be provided by the new 2.0-liter Boxer engine that develops 148 PS (109kW / 146 hp) and 196 Nm (145 lb-ft) of torque. While that hasn't been confirmed, Subaru said the Impreza will be able to achieve 36 mpg which is the best fuel economy rating of any all-wheel drive vehicle in the United States.

at least they updated the engine. the 2.5L was old and tired. Hopefully a turbo option will be available

MM, don't know about this. What about the power, a 2.0 without turbo could do better than 148 ps these days.

Typically inoffensive design. Subaru need to push their designers to show some class for a change! Not Imprezzed either.

Nothing horrible OR exciting either. As said earlier, lots of other cars can be seen in this design. A little disappointing because the concept car (as usual) had a much racier and progressive appearance.

As you guys say, looks like a tired Corolla. Add budget wheels, crap colour and what appears to be BASE spec and you have something that makes sense to Subaru for a new model teaser. They need to fire themselves and get a design team. Same story for years, great drivetrains let down by useless design decisions.

Looks like a Mazda-3, last-generation Civic & Corolla all mixed in one! ... Not "Imprezzed"!! :)

Yeah, you're absolutely right. Mazda 3 front end, Civic green house, Corolla rear end (with undersized rear wheels/arches). Subaru can do better, they seem to get the Legacy right, but the Impreza wrong consistently.

You may be right, but I would need to see different views of the car before a final judgement could be made. In the meantime with regards to the side, it looks big for an Impreza sedan.

That is a huge improvement over the current impreza. That actually looks quite good. Now lets see the performance version(s)!
