New 2017 Subaru Impreza – Release Date, Specs & Info

A spacious, family-friendly interior, great balance between ride and handling quality, and an all-time AWD make the 2017 Subaru Impreza a desirable choice in its category. Some other strengths include a secure handling, an all-time AWD, loads of upscale technologies, and a compliant ride quality. Its release date should be expected sometime during the second half of 2017.

For starters, it’s pretty much your only choice for a small sedan or hatchback if you want an all-wheel drive. The new model, just like the model before it, comes standard with it, and will give you that extra dose of traction in mundane road conditions.

Subaru is probably most well known as a company that makes all-wheel drive vehicles that appeal heavily to campers, off-road rally drivers, and skiers. But even if you’re the type who won’t venture anywhere that doesn’t have a shower, there are still many reasons why you should consider getting an Impreza.

The new 2017 Subaru Impreza has a conservative-looking interior, but a touchscreen interface is standard on every trim level. Its interior might turn off buyers looking for more flair. Others will find it clean and likely to withstand the test of time. Build quality and materials are decent for the segment, highlighted by tight-panel gaps and soft-touch materials.

The suspension system is sport-tuned and soaks bumps rather comfortably and allows for a secure and steady handling around turns. Also excellent crash test scores and plenty of standard features sum up the Impreza’s bonuses.

On a sour note though, the Impreza offers a poor audio system, the acceleration is lackluster, and the ride quality is compromised by the incessant engine noise. As such, it would be prudent to look at what the competition offers. One model that comes to mind in this fiercely fought-over battle field is the 2017 Mazda 3. Together with 2017 Ford Focus, they both offer sharp handling, a quick acceleration, and a nice interior.

Another is the 2017 Volkswagen Golf that offers an upscale and spacious cabin, and a perky turbocharged engine. And finally, you can check out the 2017 Honda Civic. At the end of the day, the new 2017 Subaru Impreza arguably remains an appealing option that will guarantee its users of a robust performance regardless of whether they are cruising on asphalt or on dirt.

2017 Subaru Impreza Engine Specs

Based on EPA ratings, the new 2017 Subaru Impreza provides a remarkable fuel efficiency for an all-wheel drive car. Under the hood, it comes with a horizontally-opposed “boxer” 2.0L four-cylinder engine rated at 145 lbs. ft. of torque and 148 hp.

A five-speed manual transmission system is offered for both the base 2.0i and 2.0i Premium trims, and which is responsible for taking the power generated to the four wheels. Competitive EPA numbers are offered for the class. The manual transmission returns 34/25/28 mpg on the highway/city/combined for both the sedan and non-Sport hatchbacks. The CVT is offered as an option.

On the other hand, the Sport hatchbacks drop the ratings to 33/24/28 mpg. Those with a CVT return 37/28/31 mpg. The top speeds’ figures for the various models are still under wraps for now but we expect them to be made public before the models’ release dates.

The big news is that the last models were witted with an XV badge in its name but the new 2017 Subaru Crosstrek is going to lose that emblem in its name. So we do not have a XV version of the Crosstrek any more offered.

The newest 2017 Subaru Crosstrek actually delivers a kind of an SUV look which was not expected when mentioning this car. Btu it actually manages to fit in well with the crossover space and surrounding the model is facing at. But what makes this car unique in a lot of ways is that it is fully available and capable of matching its performance and style in a off-road shrouding. So the versatility of use is its first and foremost advantage that the models delivers. The body of the car is also a bit longer than it was before so we also get some dimension changes made here.

It helps to be a great car if you have some great design cues and this one is certainly not shy in showing them and expressing them. The model is going to use the 17-inch aluminum wheels this time which do come as a standard offer this time and make a lot of sense now compared to before.

Exterior update

The exterior of the 2017 Subaru Forester is going to feature a few subtle changes that are going to happen but will get completely new sheet metal for its design. The front fascia has an all new and interesting look which helps it to appear wider than it actually is. The headlights are the crown jewel of the change even compared to the slightly revised grille. The U-shaped headlamps are the greatest and most innovative part of the car and the same kind of a design is seen in the back of the vehicle on the taillights.

The headlamps are a very unique concept for the Forester as they also add the LED high/low beam setup which is utilized for the first time on a Subaru vehicle. These units are steering responsive as well and in that way present even more of a unique kind of a design of the car.

Engine options for the 2017 Subaru Forester are going to remain the same for the upcoming model.

The update of the interior for the 2017 Subaru Forester mainly focused on making the comfort for the car higher and better. The changes started with the materials, of course, but it was done only slightly. New leather materials have been added to the center console, the armrest area and the door grips as well. It is perhaps a minor detail for the car and a bit unnecessary but it is always good to have something like that.

The instrument panel area also saw some changes and it mainly focuses on a color screen placed on the center of it. You can use this to your advantage as it helps you to see all the necessary driver aids which are neatly displayed here.

Finally, the  Harmon Kardon stereo system is also available for the model and it is given as an optional part of the equipment. But most people will certainly want one in their car.
