Subaru of America, Inc., launched the newest 2017 Impreza 5-Door during the 2016 New York International Auto Show. This comes at a period when the company has been experiencing success especially with sales growth covering eight consecutive years.
The introduction of the 2017 Impreza comes just a day after the company had unveiled the Impreza Sedan at the same show. By launching the 2017 Impreza, the company is also debuting its Subaru Global Platform architecture.
This platform ensures that the 2017 Impreza is able to provide the needed high level of agility, ride comfort, driving pleasure, and crash protection. With this, it also hopes to strengthen the various future models from Subaru, and that includes hybrids. Like the prior models, the 2017 Impreza comes with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. This helps with the vehicle’s traction and driving agility and offers the 2017 Impreza an advantage compared to other front-wheel drive vehicles.
In addition to the new architecture, the 2017 Impreza also marks the introduction of the company’s new design language and new driver-assist technology. Now even made roomier, it also offers new multimedia features with built-in Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
It also has the Near Field Communication connectivity. The 2017 Impreza is expected to arrive sometime in the late 2016 to Subaru dealerships with three trim lines available which are Sport, Premium, and Limited.
The 2017 Subaru Impreza comes with two new features. The first is the High Beam Assist, which depending on the present driving conditions, activates and deactivates the high beam headlamps. The second is the Steering Responsive Headlights which light up the curves. Standard safety equipment, of course, includes the driver’s knee airbag, side curtain airbags, and front seat side impact airbags.
Aside from the safety features, the 2017 Impreza also comes with added driver-assist technologies. There is the standard rear vision camera which helps the driver view the steering line. Present also is the Reverse Automatic
Braking feature which automatically applies the brakes once an obstacle is detected while the vehicle is on a reverse. The 4-way Tire Pressure Monitoring System helps to determine if the pressure of its individual wheels is dropping.
