The all-new 2012 Subaru Impreza will arrive in U.S. showrooms in the beginning of November, and the Japanese carmaker announced today that its starting price will be $17,495 before the $750 destination charge (*$18,245 total) for the base four-door Impreza 2.0i with a manual gearbox, meaning that the starting price remains unchanged over the outgoing model.
The base engine for the 2012 Impreza is an all-new 2.0-liter boxer engine that delivers 148-horses (22HP less than the outgoing model’s 2.5-liter unit) and 145 lb-ft (197 Nm) of peak torque, and returns a projected EPA fuel economy of 27 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.
All 2012 Imprezas feature Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system while the boxer engine can be paired to either to a 5-speed manual, or the new Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission.
Not including a $750 destination charge, the base Impreza 2.0i Sedan with the CVT starts at $18,495, while the entry-level five-door model at $17,995 when equipped with a five-speed manual and $18,995 for the CVT-equipped model.
The better-equipped 4-door 2.0i Premium starts at $18,795, while the 5-door Premium starts at $19,295. For the 2.0i Limited, prices start at $21,595 for the 4-door and $22,095 for the 5-door version, while the Impreza 2.0i Sport Premium, which is offered exclusively with the five-door body style, starts at $20,295.[All Live Photos Copyright Carscoop / Phil Alex]
