The introduction of the new Impreza was really long-awaited but the expectations were not exactly the same as it has been introduced. As Subaru is famous for its rugged and reliable permanent all-wheel drive vehicles in the UK, it has never received that band of fans which its rivals have.
To overcome all these damages in the past, Subaru has decided to introduce its all-new Impreza to the UK market, it is based on the brand’s all-new global platform. This platform has been introduced in the UK for the first time and Subaru believes that this platform will become the base for its entire range of vehicles in the future.
The Impreza is a car that once driven by someone, he would never go for any other vehicle in the class. It comes with the symmetrical drive all wheel system. It also comes with a CVT transmission as a standard according to some folks, but it is confirmed that the CVT transmission is available on the new Impreza.
There are several trims offered on the model to make it more vibrant and all these trims are excellent. But sitting at the top of these trims is the Subaru Impreza SE spec which is a fully loaded version of the new Impreza.
Subaru Impreza engines
There are several power trims offered on the model where customers can select from a 1.6-litre boxer engine to a 2.0-litre boxer engine. Subaru Impreza engines are simply the best in performance and economy even though if you accidentally commit the mistake of wrong fuel it still stands among the best.
However, the carbon emissions are relatively higher in the class. Both units are flat four boxer engines and powered by petrol, there is no diesel option offered at all. Both engines are coupled with automatic transmission.
The 2.0-litre boxer engines are relatively more powerful and it cranks 154bhp which is a reasonable punch. It is although a bit weaker on the torque delivery but still can make 62 miles per hour in just 9.8 seconds.
If there would be a turbocharger on the Impreza, then this time might decrease to even lower. Because all the mainstream models and brands are using turbocharged engines.
The Impreza engines have an excellent power to weight ratio and this is why they have better pull from the standstill. Surprisingly so, but overall power delivery is weak anyways.
Once when the vehicle comes into the sprint, it can then easily overtake on the motorway speed and CVT transmission help the vehicle in remaining even smoother on the higher speeds as well.
Overall, the engine needs to work really hard to prove it to be the best performer in the market. Drivers also get ready to enjoy a lot of whining sound coming inside the cabin when the engine reaches to it’s redline on the motorway.
The Subaru Impreza engines are exclusively refined to deliver better fuel economy and smoothness. The 2.0 litre Impreza engine returns a fuel economy of just over 42 miles per gallon and as stated relatively higher carbon emissions of around 152 g/km.
The UK market has very few Subaru engine specialists out there because of its popularity in the market. But still, if a reconditioned Subaru Impreza engine required, it can be sourced from them at very competitive prices as compared to the main Subaru dealers in the UK.
When you would start driving this new model, it would convert your normal driving experience into something more joy able and more meaningful. It has loads of grip on the road, off-roading credentials, and exceptional all surfaces drivability. It actually puts so-called sportier rivals to shame in the UK.
