Subaru to Debut 2012 Impreza at New York Auto Show

A refined production version of a wilder Impreza show car that debuted in LA last fall will appear.

Subaru of America will debut of the all-new Subaru Impreza 4-door and 5-door models at the 2011 New York International Auto Show later this month. The new Impreza design will provide a larger interior for five passengers and what’s said to be improved levels of comfort and refinement. Current Impreza models sell in the $19,000 to $23,000 range.

The new 2012 Impreza will deliver an estimated 36 MPG, at the moment the highest fuel economy of any all-wheel drive car on sale in the U.S. – if it is certified at that level by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The combination of the 2.0-liter naturally aspirated Boxer engine with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) used in the 2012 Impreza is part of Subaru’s next-generation powertrain. A 2.5-liter version of this engine powers the 2011 Forester.
