Talking about some successful period: Since 2011, Subaru has scored sales raises every year. It’s likely between the few producers that are able to make that demand. The trend is going on this year, with sales raises for 4.2 percent. The only thing that could slow Subaru’s success is tight supply. By the end of 2016. the company plans to amplify production capacity at its Lafayette, Indiana, factory from 200,000 now to 394,000 .
There comes in the new-for-2017 Impreza. It is moving from Subaru’s Gunma, Japan, factory to Indiana. Automotive News says the producer spent $1.3 billion to upgrade Lafayette. He hired 1,400 people. For us it means that we can expect more Subarus to come from the U.S.

Subaru’s goal was to make the new safer vehicle and more attracted to drive, with upgraded quality of the inside.
Speaking of that, the ’17 Impreza has Subaru’s new global architecture. The company says it’s 70 percent more rigid and it is offering a wheelbase up an inch over the outbound Impreza. Both the Impreza sedan and five-door are 1.6 inches longer than the old models, 1.5 inches wider and 0.4 inch lower in height. The platform will sometime support more of the brand’s lineup and is capable of accommodating hybrid technology, Subaru says. Adding it also soaks crash energy 40 percent better than the platform before. Hence, horsepower is slowly raising.
Autoweek employees who saw the new vehicle report that the inside is upgraded big time — remade to seem cleaner and more modern. it has higher-quality materials. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now sustained.
The new vehicle is available in two varieties – four-door sedan and five-door hatch features. They’re in showrooms about now. The base sedan is starting at $19,215 and the hatchback opening at $19,715.
