Default 2022 Impreza / 2023 crosstrek engines

According to one source at least, it would seem the next-gen impreza / crosstrek will move towards a 148hp 1.5 turbo blender.


My predictions for the next generation:

- "base" trims, as said above, will get the 1.5 turbo. IMHO, it has a perfectly adequate power output (despite screams from automotive journalists).
- "higher end" trim of the Crosstrek, and possibly the Impreza will keep the FB25 or move towards the CB18 - the latter being more likely if Subaru is to slowly abandon the N/A FB.
- No more manual transmission. All get the CVT and Eyesight. Further gains in fuel economy and safety (more selling points)

Thoughts? Back to an invesion of Impreza owners asking for more boost and the whoooooosh BOV on their econobox?

Maybe 1.5l in Asia and Europe, but I seriously doubt North America will see anything less than a 2.0l, turbo or not.

It’s plausible. The civic gets a 1.5 turbo so why not the Impreza... though subaru does have this odd thinking that we demand “high” displacement engines, and 0.5 litre differences around the 2 litre mark blows our mind in 4-cylinder cars haha. For that reason, I can see them not doing it too.

While the turbo probably improves drive-ability, 148hp is putrid.

Torque would probably close to 200, thats the important number.
