The car’s design is based on a ‘wide and low’ concept that gives the car an aggressive road presence. It has newly designed wider rear fenders. The new design details contribute to an improved drag coefficient and give it a look of power and stability. The four-door saloon model, which is 6.5-inches longer than the 5-door sedan, has extra space which provides for a larger and deeper boot space for storage.

|Still as loud as ever|
Under the hood is a high-boost 305-bhp turbocharged/intercooled 4 cylinders, Boxer engine teamed with a 6-speed manual transmission. To ensure that you don’t crash, the new Subaru is fitted with Brembo Performance Braking System.

It is also fitted with ventilated four-wheel Super Sport anti-lock (ABS) disc brakes. What Super Sport ABS does is it controls the braking forces at each rear wheel independently. This optimizes braking ability during hard cornering and it help reduce under steer. What a complicated car! It’s a computer on BBS® forged aluminium-alloy wheels highlighted by silver paint.

It also fitted with Brake Assist that analyzes the force and stroke on the brake pedal and increases hydraulic boost. This provides enhanced emergency braking and also activates the ABS system early if needed. If the unavoidable happens and a crash occurs, Subaru Ring-Shaped Reinforcement Frame body structure, with front and rear crumple zones, increase the chances of making out alive.
