Fifth Generation 2018 Impreza Launched by Subaru at 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show
Japanese Car maker Subaru has come up with the 2018 Impreza, its all-new fifth-gen model, at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Being a prestigious global event and of the finest, the show offers undisputed attention to the upcoming vehicles.
Being a car with a boxer engine and an all-wheel drive, Subaru has suggested that the car’s engine has received a significant number of updates while the same has been said for its CVT and chassis.
The car’s interiors though seem disappointing, but considering that Subaru has a huge chunk of the brand-loyal customer base that is usually return-buyers which make up the bulk of sales, the company wouldn’t have gone ahead and alienated its followers by putting a stark difference.
The 2018 Impreza has been built on the Subaru’s new global platform, with Impreza being the second car to make use of the latest architecture. Subaru XV holds the first spot, being unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
As per the engineers, the platform provides torsional stiffness and higher rigidity to the 2018 Impreza. The car’s even got improved vibration and noise qualities apart from being a further comfortable ride.
Several Safety Technologies
A key highlight is the inclusion of several safety technologies like traffic sign and road markings recognition, pedestrian recognition, adaptive cruise control, emergency braking and lane management system.
