-Subaru's been on a tear in the US, but the Impreza has been uninteresting outside of a WRX.
This new Impreza is no looker.
The sedan is super suburban.
The hatch looks sportier until you come around the back and mistake it for a chipmunk with jowls full of nuts.
They have downsized the engine dramatically from 2.5 to 2 liters to much improve the car's mediocre fuel economy, now projected to be 27/36, which
Subaru claims will make the new Impreza the most fuel efficient all-wheel drive car in America.
Now, that's with a CVT gearbox.
Shift it yourself with the 5-speed manual and you'll lose a few MPG.
Oh, by the way, at the Shanghai show, Subi also showed off this wilder cousin to the Impreza, the XV Concept, which, for the first time, would take an Impreza in a crossover direction.
We'll have more on that when we see it in person.
