Subaru Presents A Revamped Impreza For The Japanese Market

Subaru Japan presented a new refreshed 2020 version of their Impreza. This mid-cycle refresh is, for now, only for the Japanese market.

Subaru has unveiled a slightly overhauled version of its Impreza this week. For the moment, these mid-cycle changes only concern the Japanese market, but it should not be surprising to learn soon that this timid refresh also applies to the North American version.

The design department to modify the shield of the Impreza, the lower portion of it, which benefits from the biggest change, the grille and the fog lights are new for 2020. The signature of the optical blocks is also redrawn, a comment which also applies to rear position lights. Since this is a mid-cycle redesign, the wheel design has also been revised for the occasion.

Although the details of the Canadian model have not yet been released, it would not be surprising to see the EyeSight security system made available on more liveries from 2020 or even 2021 if the Canadian wing decides to wait another year, which is unlikely.

The interior of this 2020 version looks identical to that of the current model, which is not surprising since the major overhaul of 2017 has corrected several deficiencies, especially the dashboard.

As for the powertrain, the Subaru Impreza 2020 is expected to retain its 4-cylinder 2.0-liter engine with an output of 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. It remains to be seen if the Canadian division will dare to remove the manual gearbox from the list of options. We’ll know soon enough!
