2016 Subaru Impreza Release Date, Review, Price, Exterior, Specs – Some of the pros to expect from the new and rejuvenated 2016 Subaru Impreza include a secure handling, standard AWD system,, a compliant ride quality and a spacious interior. New add-ons present include StarLink Cloud applications, and new safety features for the Limited trims. Its release date should be expected before this fall.
The brand is well-known for its all-wheel-drive appeal especially for skiers, holiday campers, and off-road rally drivers. However, even those who like the normal adventures and everyday errand-running should consider getting one for a change.
For Subaru newbies, the Impreza is pretty much the only choice you’ll get if you want a small hatchback or sedan that has an all-wheel-drive system. The new Subaru Impreza for 2016 comes with an all-time AWD as standard.
Additionally, the vehicle comes with a nicely designed and spacious cabin with a rear seat that ranks among the most spacious in the segment. Also, buffering passengers from the bumps and jolts is a well-tuned suspension system that also aides in providing a secure and steady handling around turns. Other top-notch features include excellent crash test scores, and a long list of standard features.
On the flipside though, the vehicle comes with a few faults here and there and would be nice if you’d check what its rivals offer. Alternatives to consider include 2016 Volkswagen Jetta, 2016 Kia Forte, 2016 Volkswagen Golf, and 2016 Mazda 3.
