De­buts new

NZ Autocar - - Fyi -

Plat­form un­der­pins the lat­est Im­preza, and will be used for all forth­com­ing Subaru new­com­ers. Com­pany spokes­peo­ple said that even the base ver­sions of Im­preza are great to drive, bench­marked against Mazda3 and Fo­cus.

The com­pany reck­ons the new chas­sis of­fers a 70 per cent lift in tor­sional rigid­ity and with that vastly im­proved NVH lev­els, along with a 40 per cent im­prove­ment in crash en­ergy dis­si­pa­tion. A new rear sway­bar ev­i­dently halves the amount of body roll.
