Automotive Editor -

The compact segment is as competitive as ever, forcing automakers to pack their small cars with tons of tech and loads of new features. A great example of how far automakers are willing to go is the 2018 Subura Impreza, which sits on a new platform that makes the car more agile, safer, and more comfortable than ever. With all of the new parts, the Impreza has become a standout option in a crowded field.

What's New for 2018

After being introduced as an all-new model last year, the 2018 Impreza arrives with few changes. The Impreza lineup gets a $140 increase in pricing, which can be attributed to new automatic headlights. That feature is standard on Premium, Sport, and Limited trims.

The only other change for the 2018 model year is the addition of a short throw shifter for Sport models that are equipped with the five-speed manual transmission.

Choosing Your Subaru Impreza

Regardless of trim, a 2.0-liter Boxer engine powers every Impreza model and generates 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The engine can be paired to either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission – the CVT is a $1,000 option on the base Impreza, $800 on the Impreza Sport, and is standard on the Premium and Limited. All Impreza models feature the automaker’s all-wheel-drive system and, when properly equipped, can get up to 28 miles per gallon in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.

Available as both a sedan and a five-door hatchback, the Impreza has an impressive amount of cargo space, offering sedan owners up to 12.3 cubic feet of trunk space, while the hatchback has 20.8 cubes to work with. With the rear seats folded down, the hatchback offers an impressive 55.3 cu ft of cargo capacity.

The Impreza is offered in five different trims, which is available as either a sedan or a hatchback.

2.0i

The entry-level 2.0i Sedan starts at $19,355, including the $860 destination fee, while the five-door hatchback is slightly more, at $19,855.

Standard features include a five-speed manual transmission, 16-inch steel wheels, a six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat, a four-way manually adjustable passenger’s seat, 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats, cloth upholstery, power windows, a 6.5-inch multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a four-speaker audio system, Brake Assist, a rearview camera, and a keyless entry system.

There are no available packages for the 2.0i models.

2.0i Premium

Starting at $22,155, the 2.0i Premium is available as a sedan or a five-door hatchback for an additional $500. The trim adds 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, body-color folding side mirrors, heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats, automatic on/off headlights, paddle shifters, a six-speaker audio system, and an emergency assistance system over the base trim.

There are three available packages for the 2.0i Premium trims, including the Moonroof Package ($1,000) that adds a power tilt/sliding moonroof. The EyeSight Driver Assist Technology Package ($1,395) includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic assist. Customers can combine the EyeSight system with a moonroof for $2,395.

2.0i Sport

The 2.0i Sport trims come with 18-inch alloy wheels, side mirrors with integrated turn signals, a stainless exhaust tip, a trunk spoiler, a leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter handle, cloth sport seats, aluminum-alloy pedal covers, a multifunction display, push-button start, keyless access, and Subaru's Starlink telematics and infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, as standard.

The 2.0i Sport sedan is priced at $22,955 and has one available package ($2,150) that adds a moonroof, an eight-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system, as well as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

2.0i Limited

The range-topping 2.0i Limited models have a starting price of $25,055 and come with: 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, fog lights, chrome door handles, a power driver’s seat, leather-trimmed upholstery, folding rear seat armrest with dual cupholders, and automatic climate control.

Available packages for the top-of-the-line trim include an optional package ($2,495) that adds blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a moonroof, and the entire EyeSight suite.

Another optional package ($3,845) adds all of the features from the other optional package, but includes an eight-speaker Harman/Kardon premium audio system and navigation.

CarsDirect Tip

With all-wheel drive as standard, the only features we recommend splurging on are the EyeSight driver assistance features. You'll at least need the Premium trim for that, while we'd recommend adding the $500 hatchback body – it's both more versatile and better looking.
