It will come as a four door coupe donning aggressive looks and aerodynamic lines that will lead to better fuel economy ratings due to the reduction in air resistance. The body weight will be lighter than the previous version due to the significant use of lightweight materials in its construction.
These lightweight materials like carbon fibre and aluminium inserts will result in a better performance and fuel economy as well. All changes that will be effected on the 2016 Subaru Impreza will be based on the WRX Concept.
At the front is a 3-D chrome grille and headlamps that have been designed meticulously to give the vehicle an assertive look. The new hawk-eyed headlights come with LED technology. At the back are redesigned taillights and a sporty exhaust system.

Changes of Interior
The interior of the new 2016 Subaru Impreza is also going to receive a major technological breakthrough. The cabin will come with a lively design that will incorporate the use of top quality materials.
The cabin will also be spacious enough thanks to the new dimensions that will be used. The 2.0i and 2.0i Premium sedans will come with a tricot interior upholstery, while the top trim, 2.0i Limited, will come with leather upholstered seats.
Hatchbacks on the other hand will come with slightly altered interior specs. The 2.0i Sport Premium will come with a cloth upholstery while the 2.0i Sport Limited will come with leather seats.
It will also come with heated front seats for all models apart from the entry level model versions. A 6.2” touch screen will conspicuously seat on the dashboard of the standard model.
Other top versions such as the Premium Hatchback and Limited trims will make a debut with a 7” touch screen display. Additionally, the new 2016 Subaru Impreza will come with tons of safety features such as Pre Collision Braking system, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and rear view camera.
2016 Subaru Impreza Engine
Under the hood of the new 2016 Subaru Impreza is a choice of engines for potential buyers. The base will be a 2L flat four from the North American version which is most likely to stick through to 2016.
A brand new engine to come with the new car will be a turbocharged 1.6L or 1.4L flat four, however, the details remain shrouded in mystery. The top of the range trims will come with a 2L engine which will most likely come on the 2016 Subaru Impreza WRX STI but unlike its predecessor, it will come with better fuel economy ratings.
The current engine in use which is the 2.5L capacity engine will most probably be swapped with a 2L twin turbocharged one which will provide the same amount of power but will use lesser fuel.
Release Date & Price
The pricing details of the new 2016 Subaru Impreza have been shelved at the moment, however, we expect a slight deviation from the current one since the new Subaru Impreza has not undergone a major redesign.
With regards to the release date – We expect the new Impreza to hit the market later this year with a base price of around $10,000.
