Subaru brings the Impreza concept at LA Auto Show image

At the 2010 LA Auto Show, Subaru showed the concept version of new Impreza. Generally speaking, design of the Impreza Concept is simple – a couple of nice side sweeps of creased sheet metal and clean shapes all around.

Diffusers on the underside of the rear bumper and the rear deck, together with the front and rear bumpers, will create extra downforce compared to the actual Subaru Impreza.

The new Impreza concept will be powered by a 2.0-liter boxer engine and will use a CVT transmission to drive the wheels through a Symmetrical AWD system.

The Impreza concept features stereo cameras integrated into the A-pillars as part of Subaru’s EyeSight system, a safety feature that determines the distance of cars and obstacles ahead and applies the brakes if you’re going to ram into them. Subaru’s EyeSight system will only stop the car if the difference in speed between the two objects is less than 18.5 mph. If the difference is any faster than that, and the New EyeSight system will simply slow the vehicle.
