Subaru is set to expand capacity at its Indiana plant by 100,000 units, adding the Impreza alongside the Legacy, Outback and Tribeca to help fill demand for its vehicles in the United States. Automotive News is reporting that Impreza’s built at the plant will be sold domestically.

The Japanese-built Impreza will be a welcome addition to the plant, which will serve to further isolate Subaru from things like currency fluctuations and parts shortages. The long rumored expansion will not affect production of TTAC’s favorite punching bag, the Toyota Camry.

    They still build the Tribeca?

    “The long rumored expansion will not affect production of TTAC’s favorite punching bag, the Toyota Camry.” Is it a punching bag if TTAC correctly states that the Camry is an inferior choice in the midsize segment when many cars are objectively better?

    I just heard from one of the employees at the plant that there are special instructions for installing head gaskets into these cars so they last more than 60k miles.

    Nah, just kidding. There are no instructions at all actually.

    One less Japanese made car for me to choose from. I am sad.

      Oh you’re one of *those* people…

      In Subarus defense look at the Legacy, there has been no discernable difference in quality and reliability of the US vs Japanese built models.

    “The Japanese-built Impreza will be a welcome addition to the plant ..”

    “Assembly of Imprezas, currently built only in Japan, will be a welcome addition to the plant.”

    There, fixed it for you.

    There is no way a Japanese-built Impreza would be welcome in the plant – that’s the whole point of assembling them in Indiana.

    This is big for Subaru, expanding the plant and bringing a US built Impreza, has to make it less expensive to produce for the US market, and easier to differentiate equipment for the local market here.
