SUBARU INTRODUCES NEW SEDAN IMPREZA SUBCOMPACT UNVEILED IN BOSTON

 SUBARU INTRODUCES NEW SEDAN IMPREZA SUBCOMPACT UNVEILED IN BOSTON
 BOSTON, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru of America tomorrow unveils the Impreza series of subcompact front- and all-wheel drive sedans and wagons at the New England International Automobile Show here.
 The Impreza aims to establish a class-leading balance of performance, comfort and safety, while also offering trademark Subaru value and durability. The Impreza sedans and wagons will arrive in dealerships next February and will be sold alongside the Justy, Loyale, Legacy and SVX.
 According to Chuck Worrell, Subaru executive vice president, lessons learned in designing the Legacy and the flagship SVX luxury-performance coupe played a significant role in the development of the Impreza.
 "By borrowing the outstanding Legacy platform and many of the technological advances implemented in the SVX, the Impreza will compete in the subcompact market armed with class-leading levels of performance, value, silence and safety."
 Impreza sedans and wagons will be offered in L and LS trim levels, in front- (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) and with five-speed manual or electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmissions.
 Superior traction is achieved through a host of design considerations coupled with either of the FWD or two AWD systems. Both FWD and AWD Impreza models benefit from the low center of gravity allowed by their horizontally opposed engine, the unique, computer- controlled automatic transmission and, on LS models, four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock (ABS).
 In addition to its superior traction and structural integrity, safety features include standard driver-side air bag, adjustable three- point manual seat belts and the unique Subaru hill holder which affords manual-transmission equipped models easy first-gear starts on inclines.
 The Impreza is powered by a 1.8-liter, 110-horsepower, 16-valve, single-overhead-camshaft, aluminum four-cylinder engine with multi-point fuel injection. The engine system was designed for superior low-end power and ease of maintenance.
 To achieve leading levels of ride comfort, handling and control, the Impreza features a four-wheel independent suspension, power rack-and- pinion steering and power brakes.
 The suspension's negative-scrub, anti-dive and anti-squat geometry help give both the FWD- and AWD-equipped models excellent stability.
 Crucial in the subcompact segment is interior-space utilization and here the Impreza excels, with class-leading front legroom and headroom and total (federal) EPA Interior Volume.
 All Subaru automobiles, including the Impreza, are sold and serviced by the nearly 730 dealers nationwide and are covered by a three- year/36,000-mile limited warranty. For rust perforation coverage, the limited warranty is five years with unlimited mileage.
