Posted on March 20, 2014 by kevin-brightAfter a long time, Subaru has finally made a comeback to the UK market with the new generation Subaru Impreza.

However, the new Impreza will be the first vehicle in the C-segment to come with an all wheel drive system as standard. Design wise the new generation Impreza is simple yet attractive. At the front the car features a hexagonal grille and hawk-eye headlights that have their own unique appeal.
Moving on to the sides, it has flared wheel arches that emphasize the car’s all wheel drive character. For the passenger cabin Subaru has used high quality, highly durable materials that impart a solid yet premium feel to the Impreza. There is also a Multi Function display Read More »

Posted on October 8, 2013 by kevin-brightAt the 2013 Ney York International Auto Show, Subaru introduced its first ever production hybrid model dubbed XV Crosstrek Hybrid. A lot of interesting facts were revealed about this crossover then, but when it came to pricing, Subaru kept its mouth closed.

Posted on February 21, 2012 by carexpoFor better or worse, Subaru has held onto the company’s tradition of embracing unconventional styling. We’ve never loved the automaker’s products because of their bodywork, and the 2012 Impreza sedan isn’t out to buck that trend. Designers have blessed the four door with an aggressive face that’s far from anonymous. Large, scowling headlamps lie beneath a nicely contoured hood and are split by an attractive hexagonal grille. The front fascia features a large lower air inlet with sizable fog light bezels set far toward each corner.
And speaking of corners, engineers have rolled in the squared-off aero edges popularized by hybrid models like the Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Volt and Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. We’re willing to chalk up the sedan’s questionable lines as par for the course from a company responsible for the likes of the curious SVX and infamous Tribeca. From the front, the 2012 Impreza looks more like a Read More »
