2016 Subaru Impreza WRX Front AngelThe new 2016 Subaru Impreza will be significantly better. There are some reports online which claim that the design of the new Impreza will be heavily based on the WRX concept. the 2016 Subaru Impreza is expected to look more muscular and powerful with all of the augmented curves, assertive overall body shape and threatening front fascia.

2016 Subaru Impreza Design

The body of the 2016 Subaru Impreza will be designed like a good-looking powerful sedan. With dynamic body shape and reinvented design language which resulted in a completely new exterior design approach, the new Impreza will be a little bit larger. The length and the width will be increased, but those changes won’t be dramatic. Thanks to the new platform, called the Subaru Global Platform, this car will come with more space inside and better underpinning than before. The Subaru Global Platform also provided an opportunity to create the first Subaru plug-in hybrid, which will use the powertain manufactured by Toyota. The particular model which will get the hybrid setup is still secret, but the assumptions are that it would be the new Impreza or the new Legacy. It’s not known how exactly the 2016 Subaru Impreza will look. The more it resembles the WRX concept, the more beautiful it will be. However, we should bear in mind that they have to create and distribute a production model, which should be free from extravagances almost every concept car has. If the 2016 Impreza inherits the overall body style, we could live with not-so-augmented wheel arcs and somewhat milder front fascia. The WRX concept was so good that no matter what they use from its design, it would certainly be the most remarkable feature of the new Impreza.

2016 Subaru Impreza Engine

As for the 2016 Subaru Impreza engine, we assume that will be Subaru’s third-generation, and high-performance version of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer.This new 2.5-liter boxer should deliver about 265 horsepower, and will have direct injection for the firs time. Also, a current 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque should stay the base option, but with slightly more horses. Symmetrical all-wheel-drive system will stay the only option for the 2016 Subaru Impreza, as well as the five-speed manual or continuously-variable (CVT) transmission.
