The 1st pictures and information on the Japanese domestic market [JDM] 2012 Subaru Impreza have emerged online on account of a couple of brochure shots that had been leaked ahead of the official presentation on November 30.
As the majority of you probably expected, the JDM model is really a carbon copy on the North American version from the new Impreza, which works for sale in the us next month. In Japan, the hatchback model will carry the experience designation as the sedan will likely be called G4.
However, along with Subaru’s new 2.0-liter boxer engine, which in JDM-spec delivers 150HP and 196Nm, the domestic market Impreza also are offered with a smaller displacement 1.6-liter unit producing 115HP and 148Nm. Both powerplants will be provided by 2WD and 4WD layouts.
