With no other subcompact of the Subaru to look into, it’s hard to tell how this hatchback might look inside. However, it is safe to assume that it will not have too many Premium features. Subaru will try to stay affordable and this will translate into a lack of fancy features and gadgets.

1.6-liter units are only available in Europe and will make sense in this special Euro hatchback. However, at 112 horsepower, the output at Impreza, four-Banger will not cut the mustard against the competition, as the Volkswagen Polo GTI, Ford Focus ST, and the Toyota Yaris GRMN all give around 200 horses.

Ironically, the 2.0-liter engine will be lower as well, as the current rating on Impreza sits at 152 horsepower. Of course, Subaru could upgrade the machine to squeeze more oomphs.
