It seems that the future 2024 Subaru Impreza may undergo a total remodeling project after the 2023 model had been designed (and manufactured) as a carryover model from the previous model year. Just like the Crosstrek, there hadn’t been any grandeur or fancy updates for the 2023 model. But things are about to change for the 2024 because the vehicle has finally been due for a complete remodeling work. So, what can we expect from the new Impreza?
The Updated Plan
This compact vehicle was actually supposed to launch earlier, but it has been delayed in the process. Because of the complete redesigned work, the new vehicle will likely be constructed on the second gen SGP (Subaru Global Platform).
Impreza was the first model adopting the SGP when it was released in 2017. And now, the second gen of the platform would be introduced and utilized for the 2024 model. According to some sources, the company is very confident and sure that the new platform would significantly boost the driving quality. Not only the exterior will change, but the interior cabin will also grow. It would offer bigger space and even more legroom when compared to the current model.
Features and Technologies
The details are scarce, but the company has confirmed that they are getting there. They still don’t want to reveal much about the interior or exterior, or other related details. In terms of technology, safety systems are improved. More of the safe driving assist technologies would also be made available. Rumor has it that the Impreza driver assist, EyeSight, would be coming with a configuration that implements auto Driving Level 3 although the company hasn’t confirmed this.
The safe drive assist would help drivers prevent possible collision; in whatever situation they are at. The company keep on evaluating this EyeSight technology; possibly improving it for the future models. Hopefully, this new tech can minimize the figures of accidents and incidents, especially when encountering bicycles, pedestrians, and cars.
Powertrain and Performance
It’s highly likely that the 2024 Subaru Impreza won’t undergo any updates or upgrade for the future model. It will still be running on Boxer unit with 2.0 liter capacity, delivering enough performance and punchy power for everyday use. Rest assured that the new car would get significant upgrade to boost fuel efficiency.
Sources say that the Japanese spec Impreza would be running on a turbocharged unit wurg 1.5 liter capacity. There is a possibility that it would also get the (mild) e-Boxer hybrid tech, which would be more suitable for the future setting.
Q and A
Q: Where is the new Impreza manufactured?
A: The new vehicle would be constructed in the company’s plant in Lafayette, Indiana.
Q: When will the company plan to launch the Impreza?
A: It’s likely that the announcement will take place closing to the end of the 2022 (around November or December), but the official launch and dealership availability would happen in spring 2023 – or the summer, at the latest.
That’s the only available information up until now. It’s likely that the company would be ready to reveal more details about their 2024 Subaru Impreza when it’s already available.
