    Subaru Impreza Sport Hybrid announced in Japan

    I would but this for my wife.



    From the article:
    In the United States, the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid utilizes a 2-liter boxer motor with 148 HP and 145 lb-ft (196 Nm), joined by an electric motor. The total hybrid system output is 160 horsepower and 163 lb-ft (220 Nm). A Lineartronic CVT box with 6-speed manual mode and paddle shifters comes as standard. Of course, Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive with VDC electronic stability control and TCS are offered.

    The same underpinnings should be found underneath the body shell of the Subaru Impreza Sport Hybrid. In terms of fuel economy, look forward to more than 30 mpg (7.8 l/100 km) city. On the styling front, the eco-friendly Impreza from Japan distinguishes itself from the gasoline-fed counterpart through minor aesthetic modifications. For starters, the large front grille that spans the width of the front fascia is mildly different from the standard Impreza’s three-section grille.

    haha I'm saying for a "hybrid" it's pretty solid... but for a regular car... especially people who are more "performance" oriented... it's just "meh" to say the least lol...

    For a hybrid this is pretty good looking. Practical and decent amount of power. Too bad it's not coming to the US (yet). My girlfriend will likely be getting the Crosstrek.

    I never understood why they didn't bring these things to both the US and Japan since the US seems to always buy things from all over the place... should be a good market for them without a doubt...

    Xv crosstrek hybrid sales would beg to differ. It's the one car we have that isn't flying off the lot right now. The problem is the subaru hybrid setup does not improve highway economy at all and doesn't boost city mileage higher than 30, although the little boost in power from the electric motor is nice. I wish Subaru woukd bring thier 50 mpg clean diesel xv over here instead. Did I mention it makes the same horsepower as our gas version but with 258 lbs ft of torque? That's over 100 more than the gas version, and I'll bet that diesel + subaru = a car that should outlast its owner. Too bad it won't happen due to rtupid egulations making it cost prohibitive.
