2016 Subaru Impreza.jpg

Subaru Impreza (GT6/GT7/GK6/GK7). 2016 to date (prod. n/a). 4- and 5-door sedan. F/F, F/A, 1599, 1995 cm³ (F4 DOHC). Japan Car of the Year 2016–17, on a brand-new Subaru Global Platform. More responsive and safer, first car from a Japanese brand with a pedestrian airbag. Larger body and interior room, thanks to longer wheelbase. Mazda Axela (BM) and Volkswagen Golf VII were its benchmarks. Active torque vectoring from Levorg on some models; good ride and refinement. FB flat-fours from fourth generation carried over but with some improvement, and a weight reduction. Interior improved greatly, with eight-inch touchscreen featuring new software at centre. Originally launched as 1·6 in mid-October 2016; 2·0 followed in weeks.
