Subaru needed to axe the Toyota Camry so you could have more 2017 Impreza compacts to buy. They just vacated the Toyota Camry from their Lafayette, Indiana production line so they can build the all-new 2017 Subaru Impreza sedan and 5-Door models. Subaru’s contract with Toyota to build the Camry is up and it’s good news for consumers.
How will it benefit consumers?
Production at Subaru’s plant in Indiana significantly increased year-on-year, as Subaru vehicle production began on the assembly line that was once used to build the Toyota Camry. It has increase a whopping 62.8 percent over the same period last year. The vacated production line once used to build the Camry sedan for Toyota, will now be used to build more Subarus like the new 2017 Impreza, Outback wagon and Legacy sedan.
No more waiting
This will mean Subaru customers won’t have to wait for their new Subaru Impreza to be built. Subaru should be in a much better position to build the new compact and keep customers happy. This has been an issue for popular models like Forester, Outback and Crosstrek, as Subaru has struggled to meet demand for their all-wheel-drive vehicles. Customers have waited months for their new cars.
Subaru expects the launch of the all-new 2017 Impreza sedan and hatchback to be one of the most successful in company history. It’s been completely remodeled and sales should be brisk. By axing Toyota Camry production here in the US, Subaru will be able to have enough new Imprezas in showrooms for their customers. 2017 Subaru Impreza production is underway and the new compact will begin arriving in showrooms later this fall.
