2017 Subaru Impreza on-sale now from $22,400+ORC
The 2017 Subaru Impreza has gone on-sale around the country listing from $22,400+ORC – deliveries will begin in December.
THE 2017 SUBARU IMPREZA is on-sale now with prices starting at $22,400+ORC (for the sedan) and up to $28,990+ORC for the top-spec 2.0S sedan. The hatch variants attract a $200 premium.
The new Impreza is the first Subaru to be built on the company’s new global platform, and we got to sample it in Japan earlier this year. In addition to the keen pricing, Subaru has also announced capped price servicing with extended intervals, 12,500km or 12 months (up from 12,500km and six months).
In the first three years of the CPS, Subaru said, the total cost of servicing new generation Impreza is $1298.19 – representing a significant saving of $918.86 compared to the superseded model.
Subaru Australia Managing Director, Colin Christie, said: “With 95% of Impreza being all new, it’s given us the opportunity to look at new service offerings that represent real savings for owners.
The new Impreza will be available only with a CVT, with the entry-level Impreza 2.0i is priced exactly the same as the superseded model “but with considerable upgrades to specification”.
Subaru’s EyeSight system is available in the Impreza for the first time, and is standard on Impreza 2.0L and up (entry-level 2.0i misses out).
“The pricing advantage becomes even more significant in upper spec Imprezas, with new features such as EyeSight driver assist and Vision Assist technology making our small car big on value,” Christie said.
The rejuvenated Subaru Impreza goes up hard against the Mazda3 with pricing and specification on-par with key volume selling models, like the Mazda3 Maxx ($24,890+ORC automatic) which lines up with the Impreza 2.0L ($24,690+ORC hatch). That said, Mazda offers greater choice with its engine range, although its top model pushes beyond $35,000 before on-road costs.
