Used Car Review – Subaru Impreza (2012-2016)
This specific unnoticed style gets a finale review.
2012-2016 Subaru Impreza
The Subaru Impreza would certainly always be remembered in This specific set-up: coloration blue Centeng, gold rims, a huge spoiler, as well as an aggressive grille that will can be always driven within the harshest conditions that will’s shown on TV. What you don’t know that will there’s a road friendly edition which doesn’t possess the things (except for the coloration option) mentioned above which costs less as well as for the Japanese, available front wheel drive while the rest gets all wheel drive versions.
A regular edition of the Impreza isn’t available within the Philippine market until the third generation in 2008, prior to This specific date most versions which were made available are the WRX as well as WRX STI. Despite the cost tag, This specific became a hit for Motor Image Pilipinas as well as was common within the affluent areas of the metropolis. July 2012 saw the launch of the fourth generation Impreza yet This specific can be right now trimmed to a choice of a sedan edition, the hatchback can be killed yet resurrected as the XV while the WRX STI weren’t given a redesign until 2014. Although its cost hovers at the million peso range, This specific wasn’t that will a hit just like before.
At launch, Impreza versions can be had with either a stick shift or a CVT, with the former option being killed in favor of a cheaper style in March 2014.
Value as well as Costs
Subaru versions, with the exemption of its rally bred siblings, are known for their poor resale value, which can be an advantage for the second hand car buyer. having a cost range of P660,000-P980,000, This specific can be a fine vehicle if you want something fun to drive yet uncommon among the city streets. various other similar sized vehicles of the same time period are sold in This specific range yet they do not come with all wheel drive.
Compared to its Japanese rivals, maintaining one can be somewhat pricier due to the presence of an all wheel drive system. A problem point of This specific vehicle can be its air-conditioning system, which includes a tendency to fail.
external surfaces as well as Indoor
While the front grille has an aggressive stance may look quiet for some, the rear has some resemblance over its XV brother. Sure, This specific can be not the WRX STI style that will you are staring at, yet rather think of This specific as matured looking.
If you think that will going with This specific vehicle will reward you having a special Indoor, think again. Although Indoor quality can be excellent, This specific feels ordinary than before. Despite This specific, you get side airbags with curtain, cruise control, multi information display, HID headlamps, as well as an automatic climate control. Space can be decent enough, which can be a Great thing.
Just like the style This specific replaced, This specific can be powered by a 2.0 yet right now via a different engine family. The FB 2.0 4-cylinder with 148hp at 6,200rpm as well as 196Nm at 4,200rpm can be all fresh, developed in 2010 (the EJ has been in use since 1989) as well as has seen usage within the Forester. Acceleration can be decent enough, despite the conservative figures. Transmission options include a six speed manual or a continuously variable transmission.
Thanks to the ready all wheel drive, even when driving at high speeds on inclement weather, stability can be there. As usual, handling can be its forte especially that will This specific can be balanced when tackling corners as well as can be stable when driven on a straight line. The suspension can be tuned for fun driving, as well as that will’s a Great thing. yet for your usual city driving, This specific may prove too much.
Despite the fact that will its external surfaces may not look flashy as well as the Indoor isn’t that will premium feeling, the Impreza’s skills lies inside, with Subaru’s famed all wheel drive system as well as a communicative chassis, This specific can be still one standout. However, there are rivals that will does these things well, even if they are powered with just two front wheels.
