Called simply Option Package 16 (OP16), the package bundles popular optional features like a power tilt/sliding moonroof, a seven-inch color touch screen that runs the latest generation of Subaru’s StarLink infotainment system and a full suite of electronic driving aids called EyeSight Driver Assist Technology.
Subaru’s well-regarded EyeSight technology is centered around a pair of stereoscopic cameras that are integrated into the rear-view mirror. The system enables functions like adaptive cruise control, lane departure and sway warning and pre-collision braking.
The package does not bring any mechanical modifications. The Impreza 2.0i Sport Premium is powered by a 2.0-liter flat-four engine that generates 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft. of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a five-speed manual transmission and Subaru’s famed symmetrical all-wheel drive system.
Gas mileage checks in at 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, though buyers looking for better mileage can order the optional continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The Option Package 16 will be available in the coming weeks. It will retail for $2,295, bumping the total price of the 2015 Impreza 2.0i Sport Premium to $24,290.
