There’s a lot that makes the Impreza a winning choice for students and families: a starting price under $20,000, Top Safety Pick status by the IIHS, optional EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, multiple airbags, durable ring-shaped body structure, a sprightly BOXER engine, and the best fuel efficiency of any gasoline-powered AWD car.
This announcement comes on the heels of a record sales month for Subaru in July. Despite a continuing decline in sales of the Impreza and BRZ this year, the popular Legacy and Outback models enjoyed their best July sales numbers ever, leading the automaker to an overall July sales record and its 56th consecutive month of growth. At this point in 2016, Subaru has sold over 330,000 vehicles, thanks primarily to the arrival of 2017 models at dealerships.
“These milestones are the result of the dedication and commitment of our retailers who passionately serve the needs of our customers,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer for Subaru of America.
As the 2017 Subaru Impreza, which debuted at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this year, arrives at dealerships soon, you can expect this sales of this family-friendly sedan to start rising again.
