2016 Subaru Impreza OVERVIEW

The poster car for all-weather capability on a budget, the Impreza is the only compact around with standard all-wheel drive. Add to that it's roomy interior and generous feature content, and you can see why the Impreza has been a staple of the Subaru brand for decades.

What's New for 2016

Infotainment systems have been updated with a suite of available cloud applications. Subaru's StarLink telematics system is now standard on Limited models.

Choosing Your Subaru Impreza

Available as a sedan or hatchback, the Impreza offers impressive rear seat room for this class and, in the case of the hatchback, a hearty 52.4 cubic feet of cargo space. The overall design is conservative, though not lacking in technology.

Along with all-wheel drive, every Impreza gets a 2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission comes standard, but most buyers opt for the available continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). So equipped, the Impreza achieves 31 mpg in combined driving, quite an accomplishment for an AWD vehicle of any size.

The Impreza once again comes in base (2.0i), Premium, and Limited trims, plus Sport subtrims for the hatchback only:


Comes smartly equipped with a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio, a split-folding rear seat, a trip computer, and everything else you expect in a passenger car. The four-speaker sound system features a 6.2-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration, and HD and Internet radio. The 2.0i rolls on 15-inch steel wheels.

2.0i Premium

Gets two extra audio speakers, a rear stabilizer bar, 16-inch alloy wheels, and mildly enhanced trim throughout. The hatchback also gets a cargo cover. The available Alloy Wheel package tacks on 17-inch wheels and leather trim for the steering wheel and shifter. You can also opt for the All-Weather package (standard with the manual transmission) with a windshield de-icer and heated front seats and mirrors. A sunroof is optional at this level and above.

2.0i Sport Premium (hatchback only)

Gets the Premium's option packages as standard, plus sport fabric upholstery, roof rails, fog lamps, and lower-body moldings.

2.0i Limited

Equipped with everything available on the Premium, plus a leather interior, automatic climate control, automatic headlamps, chrome exterior trim, satellite radio, and a larger infotainment touchscreen with voice controls. Several options become available at this level, including navigation, keyless ignition, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and front collision mitigation system with automatic braking.

2.0i Sport Limited (hatchback only)

Like the Limited, but with the Sport Premium's special touches and silver grille accents.

CarsDirect Tip

We recommend skipping the base model and starting your build with the Premium, if only to get the rear stabilizer bar and optional 17-inch wheels, which yield substantially better handling.
