Not living in Japan may keep you away from some interesting cars launched by the popular manufacturers in their local mrket. One of the examples is the Impreza Sport Hybrid, launched by Subaru only in Japan, as its second hybrid model, following on from the Subaru XV Hybrid launched in 2013.
 
The motor assist function offers fuel economy of just 20.4 km/liter. Energy management controls for the hybrid system batteries have been re-engineered to utilize regenerated energy at high speeds. Fuel economy has been enhanced by altering controls to boost regeneration frequency and make active use of battery power. Specially designed Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) incorporates hybrid drive motor.
 
EyeSight is included as standard equipment on all grades. Coordinated control of the hybrid system and EyeSight enables the Eco-Cruise Control function to make the maximum use of electric vehicle driving and regenerative braking when Adaptive Cruise Control is operating, thereby improving fuel consumption under everyday conditions.
