Impreza and Forester diesels debut

Impreza and Forester diesels debut

Subaru Impreza 2.0D diesel

Subaru’s new 2-litre boxer diesel engine will appear for the first time in both the new Forester and Impreza at the 2008 Paris Motor Show (October 4-19).

Meanwhile, other highlights include a Subaru Impreza WRX2008 replica plus the Subaru R1e and G4e electric cars. There will also be a 50th Anniversary Display showcasing the original Subaru 360 minicar.

The world’s first horizontally-opposed diesel engine for a passenger car has won widespread praise for its refinement, smoothness, sharp throttle-response and outstanding fuel economy. It first appeared in the Legacy and Outback earlier this year.

Both the Forester and Impreza Boxer Diesels feature new six-speed manual gearboxes while the engine itself benefits from a new closed-type diesel particulate filter.
Such is the efficiency of the new engine that the Forester 2.0D boasts class-leading fuel economy and emissions.

The 5.25l/100km combined fuel economy and 167g/km of the Forester 2.0D X beats every other SUV on the market.

The Forester 2.0D produces 147 PS and 349Nm torque and the Impreza 150 PS and 349Nm — both at 3,600 rpm and 1,800 rpm respectively.

The new Forester Boxer Diesel goes on sale in the UK in late September and the Impreza Boxer Diesel in January 2009. Expect the models to reach New Zealand late 2009.
