Subaru Shows European Market BRZ and New Impreza at the Geneva Auto Salon

| |

The 2012 Geneva Motor Show marked the European debut for Subaru's newest models, the rear-wheel drive BRZ sports coupe and the latest generation of the Impreza hatchback.

The 200PS (197bhp) BRZ, which as most of you know by now was developed as a joint-project between Subaru and Toyota, will go on sale across Europe by this summer offered with a choice of two 6-speed transmissions, a manual and an automatic.

While most countries will get two trim levels, certain markets like the UK will also get a third, low-cost and stripped out grade similar to the one offered in Japan. Pricing for the BRZ has not yet been announced.

Also making its acquaintance with European buyers is the new five-door Impreza hatchback that is shown alongside its sister model, the new XV compact crossover. Engine options at launch will include a 114PS 1.6-liter petrol, a 150PS 2.0-litre petrol, and a 2.0-litre turbo diesel producing 147PS and 350Nm.
