Details are still scarce, but Subaru announced this past week that the new 2012 Impreza is going to be undergoing a redesign from the current model. In addition to more flowing lines, and a sleeker overall appearance, Subaru has revealed that the car will have a 36-mpg fuel rating. That’s a 10-mpg improvement over the current model, and it would mean that the Impreza is the most fuel efficient all-wheel-drive car in the United States.
Preliminary reports describe the Impreza’s new engine has being a 2.0 liter, horizontally-opposed, 4 cylinder engine, putting out 148hp and 146ft-lbs of torque. This engine will be coupled with Subaru’s advanced continuously variable trasmission (CVT), which will replace the old 4-speed transmission.
We’ll be getting a more detailed look at this car when it is finally makes its public debut at the 2011 New York Auto Show.
