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.

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 base Impreza comes with 16-inch steel wheels, all-season tires, halogen headlights, and folding side mirrors. Hatchback models add a rear wiper and a roof spoiler. This model also has cruise control, four cup holders, and a center console with a lockable lid. Hatchback models add a pair of grocery bag hooks and four tie-down hooks.

2.0i Premium

The Premium model brings in 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlamps, and heated side mirrors. Inside, this model adds steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, a cargo area cover on the hatchback, a six-speaker audio system, and a security system.

Available upgrades include a sunroof ($1,000) and adaptive fog lights ($1,395).

2.0i Sport

The Impreza Sport comes with 18-inch wheels, a sport suspension, and active torque vectoring. It also features exclusive styling and upgraded cabin features such as an eight-inch infotainment interface, keyless ignition, aluminum pedals, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The lone available package ($2,150) bundles a Harman Kardon audio system with a sunroof, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

2.0i Limited

The top-of-the-line Limited grade comes with 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, LED adaptive headlights, and fog lights. This model also adds a power driver’s seat, leather seats, a folding rear seat armrest with dual cup holders, and automatic climate control.

Two packages are available. The first one ($2,495) combines a moonroof with several safety features, including high beam assist, blind spot detection, rear-cross traffic alert, and Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. The second package ($3,895) includes everything found in the first package and adds the Harman Kardon audio system.
