Starting at $19,215 (destination charge included), the compact Impreza comes in four trim levels: base 2.0i, midlevel Premium, the new Sport grade, and a more luxurious Limited. Now incorporating direct injection, Subaru’s 2.0-liter flat (horizontally-opposed) four-cylinder engine makes 152 horsepower (up from 148). Sport and lower-end models are available with a six-speed manual gearbox, but most Imprezas will use a continuously variable transmission. Upper version includes paddle-shift function that selects from seven virtual ratios, mimicking operation of a regular automatic transmission.
All four trims are available in either a four-door sedan body or a more versatile five-door hatch.
Standard equipment on the Impreza Premium sedan ($22,015) includes:
- Rearview camera
- Power windows/locks/mirrors
- 6.5-inch touchscreen
- Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
- Heated front seats and mirrors
- Automatic headlights
- Remote keyless entry
- Six-speaker audio
- Steering-wheel audio controls
- 16-inch alloy wheels
Navigation and a sunroof are optional, as is Subaru's Eyesight active safety suite.
