Subaru plans to debut the all-new Impreza in its most wicked form, as a high performance World Rally Car Concept at the upcoming Frankfurt International Motor Show 2007. Subaru WRC driver, Petter Solberg, is scheduled to speak at the Subaru press conference during the introduction of this future WRC rally car.
Mr Matsatsugu Ngato, Fuji Heavy Industries’ Executive Vice President of Subaru for European markets, will unveil new model Impreza five-door hatchback in its 1.5 and 2.0L naturally-aspirated formats – aimed at appealing to a wider audience while still retaining Subaru’s distinctive ‘boxer’ engines and symmetrical all-wheel drive. Both technologies are claimed to offer outstanding handling and roadholding with ‘real world’ active safety.
On-sale late September in the UK, the new Impreza boasts substantially increased passenger space thanks to a new platform with new multi-link, double-wishbone rear suspension which gives agile handling combined with an exceptionally absorbent ride.
