Japanese Subaru is still quite famous in Russia and has its own club of fans who appreciate the power and practicality of cars of this brand. For 2017-2018, the company has scheduled an update for a fairly large number of its models. So what exactly will Subaru represent in 2017-2018?
Subaru Impreza 2017-2018
The 5th generation Impreza has just started to be sold in Europe, although the model was officially announced as early as March 23, 2016. The price for the novelty is about 20,000 euros.
The basis of the 5th generation Impreza formed a new modular platform SGP. The main advantage of this platform is the ability to equip the machines built on it with traditional gasoline or diesel engines, as well as with electric or hybrid engines. However, for the new Impreza as an engine, only a 2-liter engine with a capacity of 152 horsepower is still available. In as a transmission on such a car appears CVT. The drive is definitely full.
Significantly changed the interior of the car. Through the use of a new platform inside the car has become more space. A well equipped car even in the basic configuration.This car (cost about 20,000 euros) will have a multimedia system (supports Android Auto and Apple Car) with a 6.5-inch screen, power windows on all doors, electric side mirrors, ABS, EBD, Brake Assistant. The richest equipment boasts a variety of security systems, a premium audio system, more advanced multimedia and LED headlights. As you can see, Impreza has every chance of becoming a bright new 2018-2019 Subaru.
Subaru Forester 2017-2018
In Russia, the Forester is one of the most popular Subaru cars, so the news about its re-styling is probably sunk into the heart of the brand's hottest fans. The update has modernized the design of the car: the grille has become more solid, the parking lights and headlamps have been modernized. In general, the Forester has become much more solid.
Inside the car is not a lot of changes. The instrument panel has been somewhat improved, multimedia has been improved (it acquired a 7-inch display). The company's management assures that its specialists have significantly worked on soundproofing, thanks to the inside of the car it has become significantly quieter. In addition, for a fee, the car can be significantly manned with various security systems.Specifications Forester almost unchanged, except that the suspension has changed and the steering system.
The Forester will be delivered to Russia with two 2.0-liter engines: one is atmospheric, the other is equipped with a turbine. The first will have a power of 171 horsepower, and the second of 241 horsepower. The Lineatronic CVT acts as a transmission for both engines.
The price in Russia for an updated car will be 1650000 rubles.
Not so long ago, Subaru announced its intention to start selling its new product - a compact crossover XV. It is noteworthy that this model has not even been announced yet, but Subaru has already stated that the car has been certified for the Russian market and will be equipped with the ERA-GLONASS system.
The concept of the car looks very stylish, and as assured in the company, the production car will not differ significantly from the concept. In this case, we can expect that the XV will get an off-road kit - a specific bumper, wheels, arches will be on the production model. The company has seriously approached the customization of the car, so for buyers there is a wide choice of exterior colors.
The car is likely to be equipped with both gasoline and diesel engines, the appearance of a hybrid version is possible.According to some experts, the 1.6-liter gasoline engine with 114 horsepower will be used as the base engine.
According to well-known information, the novelty is likely to be somewhat larger than the current generation XV, but will lose in height. Clearance XV will be 220 millimeters, which is pretty decent. With such ground clearance, I want to test a car on rough terrain. How it will be in practice, we learn in the near future.
Subaru BRZ will be somewhat updated in 2017 - the new product will receive a new front and rear bumper, different optics and other rims. However, improvements have occurred not only outside, but inside as well - a 4.2-inch display has appeared in the car. Drivers with experience will certainly appreciate the importance of the information displayed on the display - the angle of rotation of the wheels, torque, current power. It is noteworthy that already in the basic configuration the car will acquire a decent multimedia system, which will be controlled through a 6.2-inch screen. In addition, the database will have climate control, cruise control, electric side mirrors and many electronic assistants.
Engineers of the company worked on the BRZ engine - now it began to consume less fuel, and also the speed of the unit “recall” to the driver’s actions increased. Such changes are possible due to the introduction of new valves, camshafts, exhaust manifolds. As a transmission for the updated model will act as a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic.
Like some other new models of Subaru 2017-2018, the BRZ received a new suspension system, in which shock absorbers, springs and stabilizers were upgraded.
Unfortunately, this model most likely will not enter the Russian market, however, entry into the European market is expected in the spring. By the way, in the US, this model is offered to be purchased for $ 25,500, most likely in Europe the price will be equivalent.
In September 2016, Levorg was introduced in Geneva, which is built on the same platform as the Impreza and Outback. It is noteworthy that the car looks almost no different from the concept presented in 2013, apparently the fans of the brand were satisfied with the appearance of the concept car.
The car is equipped quite decently: an advanced multimedia system (depending on the configuration of the multimedia displayhas a size of 6.5 or 7.2 inches), comfortable seats with excellent lateral support (in addition, for an extra charge, the car can be equipped with an 8-way electric control chair), a small multifunction steering wheel, climate control. It is worth noting the high quality of the materials used in the interior of the car: these are aluminum inserts, organically incorporated in the interior of Levorg, and high-quality fabric or leather. It is worth noting the abundance of electronic security systems and assistants.
In Europe, this car will be sold with 2 engines: 1.6 liters and a capacity of 150 horsepower and 2.0 liters capacity of 300 horsepower. As a transmission, only automatic is available and equipped with all-wheel drive only.
The price for the basic model is 29,000 euros.
It is no secret that Subaru thought about the release of a large crossover, the release of which is scheduled for 2018-2019. This crossover may well be the concept of VIZIV-7. It is possible that, like the VX, the VIZIV-7 will go into production almost unchanged.
The car received a very solid and at the same time aggressive appearance, which really attracts the eye.A massive false grille, aggressive and at the same time futuristic headlights, a large bumper, 21-inch wheels - a very memorable appearance.
Outwardly, the novelty seems to be very big, which is not surprising - 7 people should fit inside without problems.
Technical specifications of the car are not yet known, but according to the Subaru guide, the novelty will become the most advanced and safest car. Perhaps the car will be equipped exclusively with turbo engines with 4 or 6 cylinders. As the transmission will be used 8-speed automatic. Equipped with a car is likely to be only all-wheel drive.
