2012 subaru impreza Reviews and News

2012 Subaru Impreza
2012 Subaru Impreza
Like all Subarus, the Impreza comes with standard all-wheel drive. This used to be a penalty when it came to fuel economy ratings, but the 2012 Impreza has a new 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine that's rated at 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway when equipped with the continuously variable automatic transmission. The WRX and STI models continue to use turbocharged 2.5-liter engines that aren't terribly efficient, but they more than make up for that with their exhilarating performance. Electric power steering is now standard on all Imprezas but the WRX and the STI. Thanks to a redesign, the Impreza is more stylish than the previous model, but we still prefer the aggressive look of an STI over that of the base car any day. The redesigned Impreza has all the typical safety appointments, better fuel economy, and a more luxurious interior, and yet Subaru has still managed to hold the line on pricing. The Impreza remains one of the best bargains on the market, but it doesn't come across as a cheap car when you look at it or drive it. Increases in trunk capacity and rear-seat legroom are sure to please shoppers who found the old Impreza a bit cramped.
2014 Subaru WRX Front Three Quarter 1
Subaru enthusiasts have been impatiently waiting for an all-new WRX variant of the Impreza compact. Well, the wait may soon be over – our spy photographer caught this mule for what looks to be the next-gen WRX out testing in the desert alongside a current-generation WRX.
Subaru WRX STI 340R Rear Three Quarter
Subaru has a habit of blessing Japan and Europe -- but not America -- with ever-faster versions of its WRX and WRX STI performance cars. The latest is the WRX STI 340R, which goes on sale in the U.K. alongside the existing WRX STI 320R.
2012 Subaru WRX Club Spec Front Three Quarter
Subaru has updated its WRX STI model line yet again, but not here in North America. Instead, Japanese customers will see subtle tweaks to cars sold in their market, while Australian buyers will be able to order a new limited-edition Club Spec WRX model.
2012 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Front Left View
It's easy to write off systems like Subaru's SI-Drive as gimmicks that are more about marketing than real-world utility, but the STI benefits from the SI-Drive system. Driving around in the Intelligent setting makes the car a little smoother and slightly more economical. Bumping up to S# setting gives the car much better throttle response that makes rev-matched downshifts extremely easy and is perfectly situated for track use or very spirited driving.

Summary
Subaru is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Legacy and Outback vehicles equipped with an automatic or CVT transmission and an Audiovox remote engine starter (RES) accessory, certain model year 2012-2013 Impreza vehicles equipped with a CVT transmission and an Audiovox remote engine starter (RES) accessory, and certain model year 2013 XV Crosstrek vehicles equipped with a CVT transmission and an Audiovox remote engine starter (RES) accessory. Additionally included are certain model year 2013 Legacy and Outback vehicles that may have received replacement RES fobs. If the RES fob is dropped, the fob may malfunction and randomly transmit an engine start request without pressing the button.
Consequences
The engine may inadvertently start and run for up to fifteen minutes. The engine may continue to start and stop until the fob battery is depleted, or until the vehicle runs out of fuel. If the vehicle is parked in an enclosed area, there is a risk of carbon monoxide build-up which may cause headaches, dizziness or, in extreme cases, unconsciousness and/or asphyxiation.
Remedy
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will replace the RES key fobs, free of charge. The recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 for more information.
