Subaru Impreza — The Specs as well as the Scoop
Subaru Impreza has been more better when the manufacturer could have want to put some more viable changes on the engine as well as other features. The affordable small car is ranked very low because of its outdated power train and uninspiring style. Though the Impreza could only impress the driver in relation to fuel efficiency plus some amount of safety features. Subaru counts this car one of many sporty vehicles of energy but to be sporty small car it needs some quality.
The brand new Subaru Impreza is an all wheel drive car which can be ranked low due to the failure to deliver good engine choices. The newly redesigned car could not match the modern forms of today’s needs. Subaru also provided Impreza wagon and Impreza WRX that are performance oriented cars. The performance of WRX is sort of reliable but the Impreza midsize car couldn’t impress the critics and auto lovers much.
Under the Hood:
The Subaru Impreza continues to be criticized due to the under performance much less powerful engine features. Let’s see what it utilizes within the hood. The Impreza is installed which has a standard 2.5-liter aluminum alloy 16-valve boxer engine making 170 horsepower plus 170 pound feet of torque. This power is not enough to give the acceleration the present American generation wants. The automobile can achieve the benchmark of 60 mph in mere 9.1 seconds. The graceful distinct four-cylinder engine are able to do but when it’s actually a Subaru Boxer engine it should have added more power. The vehicle is capable of doing 20 mpg within the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway. This isn’t so impressive since there are other affordable mid size cars like Toyota Camry yet others which have more powerful engine and will carry out the same.
The Subaru Impreza WRX which is performance oriented car may be capable of offer impressive performance featuring its 305 horsepower, 290 lb-ft 2.5 liter four cylinder engine. This car is capable of the milestone of 60 mph within 6.1 seconds.
Another model of Subaru called Legacy too used exactly the same engine that the Impreza uses but it has more power options that this 2008 Impreza model. Legacy features a collection of another engine in the car can be a 2.5 liter four-cylinder turbo charged engine with 243 horsepower and 241 pound-feet of torque at 3,600 rpm. Moreover there is the is the 3.0 liter six cylinder Subaru boxer engine which makes 245-horsepower and 215 pound-feet of torque at 4,200 rpm. This engine using a five-speed automatic transmission with SPORTSHIFT rev-matching control will give only 17/24 mpg at its best.
