The 2016 Subaru Impreza has been announced for the Japanese market and it looks chock full of Subaru goodness that we at can’t wait for. The 2016 Subaru Impreza Sport Hybrid will follow in the footsteps of the XV Crosstrek Hybrid which hit the global market a few years back.


So what’s in this wonderful mystery vehicle? The 2016 Impreza hatchback hybrid will feature a gasoline/electric hybrid powertrain. It could also sport the 2.0-liter engine generating 160 horsepower and 163 pound-feet of torque that we’ve seen in the XV.


In addition, we could see the 2016 Impreza hybrid come complete with a manual mode that offers steering wheel paddle shifters giving it sportier driving dynamics. And the new battery will be housed in a strategically low position in the vehicle contributing to greater agility.


In terms of safety, the Impreza Sport Hybrid will reportedly be equipped with the next generation of EyeSight. A stereo camera will recognize objects and distance to further aid in pre-crash braking and cruise control functions. With this technology you’ll be safe inside the lanes when on the road and equipped with more safety when off the road.
