The Impreza turns 30 with a new generation and drops the manual transmission

Few cars have managed to adapt so well to the Quebec market. With its standard all-wheel drive, the Subaru Impreza has enjoyed great popularity since its first public outing 30 years ago at the Los Angeles Motor Show. For its sixth generation, unveiled last week at the same event, the compact is polished and drops its manual gearbox.

Redesigned to mark the passing of the torch to a new vintage, this 2024 Impreza is built on the revised chassis of its predecessor. Engineers have increased the use of structural adhesives to enhance torsional strength. A rack, which is said to be more direct and borrowed from the WRX model, is also used for the dynamism of the direction.

The manual disappears, the 2.5 L invites itself

Mechanically, the standard Impreza retains its direct-injected 2.0L flat-four engine (152 hp and 145 lb-ft). This can no longer be coupled to a manual gearbox, a sign of the lasting decline of this type of transmission. A CVT simulating eight gears is thus offered as standard on all versions.

As an option, a new RS livery, an appellation used to name the ancestor of the WRX in the late 1990s, made its appearance with the 2.5 L four-cylinder (182 hp and 178 lb-ft). This optional engine, used in many of the manufacturer’s products, can also be ordered with the Sport-Tech variant.

On the technology side, the Impreza includes the option of the large 11.6-inch vertical touch screen as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wirelessly. A cautious evolution, in the image of the brand.
