Fuji Heavy Industries has added a model to the Subaru Impreza Sport that’s equipped with a hybrid system and the new model is set to go on sale July 10. Here are some official images of the new hybrid model.

The Impreza Sport Hybrid is the company’s second hybrid model after the XV Hybrid. With a combined 2L horizontally-opposed 4-cylinder engine and motor, it offers the excellent drive you expect from a hybrid as well as 20.4km/L (JC08 mode).

The motor’s high voltage battery and Subaru’s proprietary symmetrical AWD layout with its low center of gravity and excellent weight distribution give the new hybrid model an excellent driving performance. It also has EyeSight (ver.2) for improved safety.

ECO Cruise Control, which is controlled by the hybrid system and EyeSight, makes maximum use of EV driving and the regenerative break when cruise control is activated, help to improve fuel efficiency.

The price is 2,505,600 to 2,635,200 yen.
