SUBARU BRZ AND NEW IMPREZA MAKE EUROPEAN DEBUT AT 2012 GENEVA MOTOR SHOW
Japanese manufacturer, Subaru, will exhibit the hotly-anticipated Subaru BRZ and Impreza five-door at the forthcoming 82nd Geneva International Motor Show (8 to 18 March), marking the European debut for both models.
The 200PS Subaru BRZ – developed as a joint-project between Subaru and Toyota – is a sports car designed to offer maximum driver engagement. Featuring a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout, and powered by Subaru’s trademark horizontally-opposed 2.0-litre Boxer engine, this exciting model will deliver impressive levels of grip and handling thanks to the lowest centre of gravity of any production car.
The fourth-generation all-new Impreza, which will also be on display at the Swiss expo, has been designed to offer high levels of refinement and value. The C-segment model will provide superior reliability, handling and safety features, with Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system and horizontally-opposed Boxer engine at its core.
In addition, Subaru will also be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of its unique Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive platform at this year’s Geneva show. The technology was first introduced on the Leone estate in 1972 and Subaru’s stand will showcase a number of products from four decades of All-Wheel Drive, including the history of Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, a distinct new logo and a 3D virtual game.
