History, development and general characteristics

Subaru made the official unveiling of the third generation Impreza in April 2007 at the New York Auto Show.
The new Impreza carries Subaru’s intention of offering a turbocharged production car with the high performance of rally-purpose cars at any time and under all driving conditions.
The third series Impreza is currently on production.

Engine and Transmission

Subaru provides the 3rd series Impreza with flat-4 (boxer) front engines, front- and four-wheel drive powertrains (depending on the versions) and either 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmissions, according to each Impreza version’s features.
Within the internationally sold Impreza versions, 2.0- and 2.5-liter displacement engines are offered, with horsepower ratings between 148 and 305. The most commonly offered engine, however, is the 2.5-liter turbocharged unit with 224 hp, which allows the car to go from 0-60 mi/h (0-97 km/h) in 5.7 seconds.
With the Japanese domestic market, Subaru offers a different engine range for the Impreza, with displacement capacities of 1.5 and 2.0 liters, including one turbocharged 2.0-liter unit.
A diesel engine is scheduled to be added to the Impreza range in January 2009.

Body and Design

The customer of a third series Subaru Impreza can either choose a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback car.
The hatchback, offered for the first time in a Subaru Impreza, has a characteristic curved roofline that ends on an aerodynamic rear spoiler, resulting on an accentuated sports-style look. The sedan Imprezas now have a wider and sharper front fascia, when compared to the earlier generations.
