Subaru is slowly expanding his diesel availability in Europe. Fitted with the marque's signature boxer diesel cylinder (the only I can think of in a modern production vehicle), this diesel powertrain has been already available for a few months for the Legacy and Outback models. Following the Paris Motor Show, the engine will also be found under the hoods of Impreza and Forester models. The diesel Impreza gets 150hp and has CO2 emission levels of 152 g/km, while the Forester develops 147hp and has CO2 emission levels of 167 g/km. Both cars get new 6-speed gearboxes as well as Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) fitted as standard. Subaru will also showcase two additional models in Paris, the G4e and R1e, which we've already seen at other motor shows.

      The Impreza diesel if combined with a six speed transmission would be an excellent choice particularly for those who live in the Northern US. Great grip in winter with superb fuel economy.

      i read about this first over in the car news at exchange and mart http://bit.ly/PdGTr and am really looking forward to seeing how successful it is. Seeing as the car comes with a generous level of standard equipment, 258lb/ft of peak torque between 1,800 and 2,400 rpm and the fact that petrol prices are once more reaching ridiculously high prices, I think it could do really well.
