A Short Glance at the History of the Subaru Impreza
Subaru, the automobile division of the Japanese giant Fuji Heavy Industries, started manufacturing the Subaru Impreza back in 1992. It was intended to replace the Leone, a previous car model that Subaru also produced.
Subaru produced four-door and five-door variants of the Impreza since 1992. It started making a coupe version in 1995. The first three generations of the Impreza were also made available to North American car buyers, equipped with an off-road package and is called Subaru Outback Sport.
The first, second and third generations of the Impreza was produced from 1992 to 2011. Today, the current model of the Subaru Impreza belongs to its fourth generation. Although the current model is almost the same as its third generation models, it is lighter and more fuel efficient.
If you are searching for a compact car, you might want to look at the essential specifications of the 2015 Subaru Impreza. It might have the features that you are looking for.

The Subaru Impreza accelerates swiftly, although not really in an earth-shaking manner. But its handling is quite good with its all-wheel drive system.
It has a CVT system which is electronically controlled. This system enables the car to keep the engine operating at maximum efficiency no matter what the driver asks the car to do.
Generally, the Subaru Impreza is very responsive, and its maker has largely avoided the usual downside of CVTs. The car is very responsive and has no tendency to do anything dramatic.
The boxer engine also gives all the Subaru variants a low center of gravity. In addition, the Impreza is flat in cornering, and accelerates quickly out of corners with little discernible under steer. As such, it is better than what its nearest front-wheel-drive rivals are capable of doing.
The new Subaru Impreza earned the designation of Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle, or P-ZEV because of its remarkable fuel efficiency. This is the label for vehicles that follow California’s stricter emissions standards. And Subaru has opted to offer the P-ZEV engine in all 50 states, not just in California.
The 2015 Subaru Impreza sustains its reputation as a car with better fuel-economy ratings than any other all-wheel-drive vehicle being sold on the market. Thanks to the minor improvements for the 2015 CVT-equipped versions, the car gets a slight bump in the fuel efficiency department.
Being the most fuel-efficient CVT model in the market, the Impreza has a maximum 28 miles per gallon in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. The five-speed manual is rated at 25 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.
The current Subaru Impreza has added a number of standard safety equipment as well as other advanced-safety tech. This makes the Impreza one of the safest compact sedans you can drive.
Its safety package and design structure offers excellent security as proven by its excellent performance in safety tests which placed it near the very top of its class.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has awarded this new model with an overall five-star rating–with top scores in all tests, except that of the four-star rating in frontal impacts.
It also earned the Top Safety Pick+ choice given by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). That means it has received a top score of ‘good’ in all tests, including in the new small-overlap frontal test.
Comfort and Quality
The new Subaru Impreza makes better use of its interior space. Both passengers and cargo spaces have increased, which is an improvement in the overall space available in the older versions.
Material appointments also got an upgrade, with soft-touch materials now covering most parts of the dashboard and center console. The controls are made simpler and more intuitive. In addition, only a moderate amount of noise can creep inside the cabin.
