I Don't aggree with every change, aka, the hood scoop. it's so ugly. but whatever, I will never drive any other car.

    2007 Subaru Impreza review

    "Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI), the maker of Subaru automobiles, announced today the new generation Impreza series for the Japanese market. The all new Impreza is available on dealers starting today. The third generation Impreza is developed around the concept of new and more refined designs for comfort plus performance. It features “5-door packaging”, while it offers a rewarding and safe ride enhanced by Subaru Symmetrical AWD (All-Wheel Drive) with the Horizontally-Opposed engine and the newly developed chassis."

    Here's a new review on the 2007 Subaru Impreza, from TopSpeed. It features info on the design and performance of the car, as well as a photo gallery.

    Likely the most comprehensive info we've gotten so far. Good find.

    Some highlights/changes:
    • Dual AVCS (intake and exhaust valves)
    • New turbo (my bet is it is the VF40 from the Legacy)
    • Liquid filled engine mounts (can you say "snappage")
    • Automatics shift into Neutral all by themselves when sitting for a while (wierd).
    • New front cross members...reduction in subframe parts.
    • Double wishbone rear suspension (nice)
    • Hill assist (for wimps)
    • An "eco light" to tell you when you are running efficiently
    • 50% better emissions and 20% better fuel economy (from 2005)
    • HDD Nav w/7" VGA LC backlit screen optional
    • Noise vibration cancellation on upscale sound system
    Soooo...performance wise. Should handle nice. Power is delivered earlier. Better braking. Better fuel economy. More room. Obviously more luxury oriented. Reminds me of a "mini" Legacy tbh.

    Purists are going to be dissapointed (but aren't we/they always?). This will bring new customers in, and that is the goal of any business.

    Great Find.....

    2007 Subaru Impreza review


    But shouldn't this be the 2008 Subaru Impreza Review? Sedan looks a tad bit better, but not as nearly agressive as it should be.

    These features plus the hatch body are IMO moves in the right direction. The fuel and emissions items in particular are crucial, and having bought a navi system once in our Honda, I'd always want that option in any car. It'd be great if the ECO light went along with 2 cylinders not burning fuel as well. I wonder if the dual AVCS has to do with Miller cycle settings?

    he lied.

    2008 Impreza due for dealer release in august or sept 07.

    2008 STI due in dealers Dec 07 or Jan 08. If they are as they usually are. figure 30 days later than expected for actual arrival.

    we have already placed 5 or 6 sold orders to SOA for 2008 WRX models.

    Seth, when you get those cars, you have a responsibility to drive/evaluate/report on them to us very quickly.

    I just wish they would quit the bull ish and make a Sti that comes with two doors. I don't care how the hell you get into the trunk or the rear seat, just make the thing mean, like mean. I know the weight saved wouldn't= the money earned but danm make a car that will make use proud.

    when WRC calls for a 2 door, then they will..just as WRC called for the hatch.
