2012 Subaru Impreza - Spinout

Lighter, Faster Than Outgoing Model

Aug 14, 2011

The sleek, all-new, fourth-generation ’12 Subaru Impreza was another spotlight-stealer at NYIAS. Available in a 4-door sedan and 5-door hatch configuration, the fresh Impreza represents a bolder, more dynamic design and an all-new powertrain that bumps fuel efficiency by 30 percent while also delivering improved performance.

With motivation supplied by an all-new 148hp 2.0-liter Boxer engine, the ’12 Impreza comes with a choice of a 5-speed manual transmission or the second-generation Lineartronic CVT. The ’12 Impreza will offer the highest fuel economy of any AWD car in America, with projected EPA ratings of 27/36 mpg (city/highway).

Richer-looking appointments and details abound inside, including soft-touch materials, loads of storage nooks and plenty of cargo area. Although not the tuning juggernaut of its WRX brethren, the Impreza packs a lot of value into one package. It is slated to hit showrooms this fall.

Fourteen years is an eternity for a chassis to remain in production without a complete redesign. We rarely see cars, even special interest or sportscars eclipsing the 10-year mark in the Japanese vehicle realm with a single chassis. Sure, it happens, but it’s not a common occurrence though Nissan seems to push those limits as

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent
