The all-new Impreza hatch and sedan are due in the second half of next year, followed by the next-generation Forrester in 2008 and Legacy in 2009. To help its standing in Europe, Subaru will be launching a new range of turbo-diesel engines that will most likely coincide with the launch of the new Impreza. There will be both 2.0L four-cylinder boxer versions as well as a 3.0L six-cylinder variant.
To compete in the power stakes, Subaru is also rumoured to be working on a new 3.6L gasoline engine as well as new turbo charging technology. Further, a newly formed alliance with Toyota will provide Subaru with the latest in hybrid technology. However, the immediate goal is still to promote its new range of diesel powerplants.
