The all-new 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-Door and Sedan will be launching in Japan soon. Here’s three new videos of a walk-around that shows the new compacts styling and a new safety feature. It’s a first-ever pedestrian protection air bag featured on the Japan model Impreza sedan and 5-Door. It's a first for the brand to offer this pedestrian-protection system.

A new level of pedestrian safety

Subaru's new EyeSight safety system (Ver.3) will be standard equipment on the new Impreza. Subaru says the pedestrian protection air bag will also be standard equipment on the all-new compact Sedan and 5-Door. The new air bag will deploy if the vehicle hits a pedestrian, shielding them from the full impact of the collision. You can see it for the first time in the video below.

The new Global Platform improves safety performance

Subaru says the 2017 Impreza’s danger avoidance performance has also been improved by the new Global Platform the compact car now comes with. The Japanese automaker says the collision safety performance has been increased by 1.4 times the collision energy absorption the current-generation car offers. The automaker says the ratio will dramatically improve safety in the new Impreza for driver and passengers.

These new walk-around videos of the new 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-Door, Sedan and pedestrian safety bag were taken at Subaru’s new Ebisu Building in Tokyo, Japan. Subaru uses a first-floor showroom to show off their latest vehicle launches. Check it out below.
