Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2017 Subaru Impreza OVERVIEW
The 2017 Subaru Impreza is a compact sedan or five-door hatchback, the lowest-priced model from this niche Japanese brand. Like nearly all other Subaru models, the Impreza is equipped with standard all-wheel drive, giving this five-passenger model an important advantage in the very competitive small car market.
What's New for 2017
The 2017 Subaru Impreza is all-new.
Choosing Your Subaru Impreza
The 2017 Impreza is available in four grades: 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, 2.0i Sport, and 2.0i Limited. All four grades are available in both body styles. Subaru prices the 2017 Impreza sedan from $18,395 to $24,095. Add $500 for the hatchback model. List prices do not include an $820 destination fee.
All models are powered by a 2-liter four-cylinder engine with 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. Base models offer a five-speed manual transmission; a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is available. The Impreza is EPA-rated at 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.
Standard equipment goes well beyond all-wheel drive to include power side mirrors, Subaru’s telematics system, a rearview camera, cloth seats, power windows, and a four-speaker audio system. Daytime running lights, brake assist, and a driver knee airbag are included. Except for the base model, each grade offers one or two packages. Standalone accessory items include a premium Rockford Fosgate audio system ($495), auto-dimming side mirrors with approach lighting ($232), and an auto-dimming rearview mirror ($342).
The all-new 2017 Subaru Impreza is now built in America. You get best-in-class fuel economy for an all-wheel drive model and four grades to consider. To obtain the top driver assistance features, your only choice is the Limited. A fully optioned hatchback will cost you about $30,000.
Even with the holiday season upon us, Subaru’s incentives have had minimal changes. However, with 2020 models arriving, the remaining 2019s are seeing better offers. In terms... View All Subaru Lease Deals
