Looking at the 2017 Subaru Impreza, you would most likely not find yourself attracted to its exterior appearance. Despite this, however, the 2017 Subaru Impreza still has the biggest fan base in a global scale. Given this fact, it simply begs the question of what sets the 2017 Subaru Impreza apart from its rivals in the auto industry.

 2017 Subaru Impreza: Looking Past The Exterior

One of the things you will notice in the 2017 Subaru Impreza is the fact that there aren't many changes made by the automaker when it comes to its external appearance. This is why you are going to have to look past the exterior in order to see what makes the 2017 Subaru Impreza special. According to Jalopnik, you are going to have to get behind the wheel of the 2017 Subaru Impreza in order for you to understand why many people simply love this car. Sure, the 2017 Subaru Impreza's powertrain does not appear to be very impressive on paper but performance says otherwise. Push the car to the limits and you will see why it has so many people that would rather put their money on a Subaru Impreza than any other car in the market.

2017 Subaru Impreza: A Closer Look At The Powertrain

According to report, the 2017 Subaru Impreza draws power from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that simulates the feeling you get when you are changing gears on a manual gearbox. Of course, nothing beats a real manual gearbox, which is why the 2017 Subaru Impreza is also available with a five-speed manual transmission that simply offers a more engaging driving experience. Unfortunately, the top trim Limited does not come with a stick shift as it will only be paired with the CVT.

2017 Subaru Impreza: The Performance

Among the reasons why you won't see many changes in the external appearance of the 2017 Subaru Impreza is because all of the major changes were made in the performance aspect. Starting off from the fuel efficiency, the 2017 Subaru Impreza will give you a range of 24 and 32 miles per gallon in the city and on the highway for the manual gearbox. Switch to the CVT and you will get 28 and 38 miles per gallon in the city and on the highway respectively.

Thanks to Subaru's new Global Platform, the 2017 Impreza performs seamlessly on the road. It has improved suspension system for better ride. The steering has also been tweaked for higher responsiveness and the lower center of gravity reduces body roll for the 2017 Subaru Impreza. Given all those facts, the 2017 Subaru Impreza has simply been made better than ever.

2017 Subaru Impreza: Getting Behind The Wheel

You can start off by driving the way you normally drive and see how it feels. Kick things up a notch by driving more aggressively and check out how the 2017 Subaru Impreza backs you up.
