Welcome to the Place Where Life Happens.
With reliability and safety you can count on and performance to get excited about, the Impreza is the foundation for your active life. The Impreza inspires people to get out and live more productive, enjoyable lives and to make every day and every opportunity more meaningful.
SUBARU BOXER Engine
A boxer engine, or a horizontally opposed engine, is an engine configuration in which its pistons move toward each other in a horizontal direction. Subaru has been solely committed to
the SUBARU BOXER engine for over 50 years for its many advantages over other engine types, providing durability and reliable performance in its vehicles.
The low centre of gravity and flat design give it better side-to-side stability than other engine types.
The engine’s flat design is inherently rigid and self-balancing, generating less vibration than other engine types.
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD distributes power to all wheels for better traction on wet and slippery roads. Laid out in a horizontally
symmetrical plane, this system has a well-balanced low centre of gravity design for a more stable and safer ride.
Lineartronic + Active Torque Split AWD
Lineartronic adjusts to any ratio in its range for smooth and stepless gear changes that keep the engine in its most efficient range for efficient and smooth acceleration, driving performance and better fuel efficiency.
It comes paired with Subaru’s active torque split AWD system. Its default torque is well-balanced front to rear and adjusts in response to real-time traction conditions.
SUBARU GLOBAL PLATFORM
The Subaru Global Platform (SGP) is the underlying platform that will underpin the next generation of Subaru vehicles. Enhancing all-around safety and performance, it goes beyond better performance to offer a
driving feel you can only find in a Subaru. It’s the future of Subaru—and delivers even more enjoyment and peace of mind to all drivers and passengers.
1. More Fun to Drive
More responsive handling allows the driver to steer the car as intended, also increasing hazard avoidance. The result is a car that’s safer and more fun to drive, even on long trips.
2. Ride Comfort
Improvements in chassis rigidity, suspension, and stabilisers efficiently absorb shocks from the road and hide uneven surfaces, allowing more comfort and less fatigue on long rides.
3. Comfortable Cabin Space
Unpleasant vibrations or noise have been minimised to ensure all passengers enjoy the ride. Suspension improvements and a highly rigid chassis allow a comfortable cabin interior for all.
Advanced Safety Package: SUBARU Rear Vehicle Detection (SRVD)*
Sensors placed around the vehicle alert you of vehicles in your rear blind spots for safer lane changes. It also warns you of potential collision danger while driving in reverse into a street with cross traffic.
Advanced Safety Package: High Beam Assist (HBA)*
High Beam Assist increases visibility and safety when driving at night by toggling the Outback’s high beams on and off automatically, depending on driving conditions.
Advanced Safety Package: Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB)*
When in Reverse, this system uses four sensors on the rear bumper to detect obstructions behind the vehicle. If detected, the system can alert the driver with warning sounds and automatically apply the brakes to avoid a collision or reduce collision damage.
Vehicle Dynamics Control System
If the vehicle approaches the limits of stability, the AWD torque distribution, engine output, and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course.
* The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving and observance of traffic regulations. Please do not depend solely on the Advanced Safety Package features for safe driving. There are limitations to the features of this system. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations. Please ask your retailer for more details.
Subaru Global Platform
The SGP’s advancements throughout the chassis—higher rigidity, higher strength, lighter weight, better rolling resistance and responsive steering—particularly benefit these safety systems.
Made possible by the SGP, the lower centre of gravity design, enhanced suspension system, and rigidity improvements provide a vehicle that responds immediately when evasive actions are taken, helping avoid hazards on the road.
Now sitting lower than ever due to the low centre of gravity design of the SGP, the engine and gearbox are designed to avoid crashing into the cabin in the event of a collision.
Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame
The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame makes better use of high-tensile steel panels and has been structurally redesigned for more efficient energy absorption from impacts in all directions.
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)* Airbags
Front SRS* airbags, front side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags, and a knee SRS* airbag come standard on the all-new Impreza to give all passengers a higher level of protection in the event of a collision.
Whiplash-mitigating Front Seats
Designed to enhance comfort and help the driver feel more planted for more control, these seats can also help reduce the possibility of whiplash resulting from certain types of collisions.
During an impact, the locking tongue limits movement in the lap belt and reduces impact in the lower chest area to improve safety and reduce injury levels.
* SRS: Supplemental Restraint System. Effective when used in conjunction with seatbelts.
SUBARU’s World-leading Driver Assist Technology
At Subaru, we believe in ALL-AROUND SAFETY, and an important part of that is pre-collision safety, making sincere efforts to ensure an accident never happens. That’s why we created EyeSight*1 , Subaru’s cutting-edge driving support system. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, EyeSight uses two stereo cameras to capture three-dimensional colour images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human
eye. Using images from both cameras to precisely determine the shape, speed and distance, it not only detects vehicles but also motorbikes, bicycles, and pedestrians. *2 When spotting potential danger, it warns the driver and even applies the brakes if necessary to help avoid an accident. With improved safety performance like this, EyeSight reduces the burden on the driver and enhances your sense of security in the Impreza.
Adaptive Cruise Control
EyeSight*1 doesn’t only maintain the speed the driver sets as traditional cruise control does. When it senses a vehicle in front, Adaptive Cruise Control adjusts the speed to keep a set distance from the lead vehicle by monitoring the distance and the difference of the speed. It adjusts the engine, transmission, and brake to keep your speed in line with the traffic flow in a wide range approximately from 0 km/h to 180 km/h. Designed for use on freeways, highways, and similar roads, Adaptive Cruise Control actually detects a lead vehicle and its brake lamps and can help keep pace in stop-and-go highway traffic for you—a comfort and convenience on long drives.
Lane Sway And Departure Warning
When you are distracted by fatigue and are wandering or drifting in a lane, Lane Sway Warning helps you stay alert with a buzzer and a flashing indicator. However, Lane Sway Warning only activates at speeds of approximately 60 km/h or more. When travelling at speeds of approximately 50 km/h or more and you accidentally drift to the edge of your lane and begin to depart your lane without signaling, Lane Departure Warning warns you with a buzzer and a flashing indicator before you leave your lane.
Lead Vehicle Start Alert
When you’re at a stop and EyeSight senses that traffic has started moving again, Lead Vehicle Start Alert prompts the driver to take action with a buzzer and a flashing indicator.
Pre-Collision Braking System*2
When it senses an impending collision with a vehicle or other obstacle in front, the Pre-Collision Braking System can warn the driver with a buzzer and a light on your dash. If the driver still does not take evasive action to avoid the collision, the system can automatically apply the brakes to reduce any impact or, if possible, prevent the collision. If the driver takes evasive action to avoid a collision, Pre-Collision Brake Assist can act to aid the driver in preventing the collision.
Pre-Collision Throttle Managements
When EyeSight sees an obstacle in front of you and you put the vehicle in Drive instead of Reverse, Pre-Collision Throttle Management sounds several short beeps, turns on a flashing indicator and cuts the engine output to help you avoid a frontal collision.
*1 EyeSight is a driving support system which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving and observance of traffic regulations. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather, and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations for EyeSight including functions in this brochure.
*2 Pre-Collision Braking System may not work in all situations. Depending on the speed difference from objects, the object’s height, and other conditions, every situation may not meet the necessary conditions for EyeSight to work optimally.
