The Subaru Impreza was introduced as a fully redesigned model in 2017. Since then, the compact vehicle hasn’t received any major changes. We expect the 2022 Subaru Impreza to be a carryover model.
When the Impreza arrived as an updated model in 2017, it brought Subaru’s conservative design language with it. Slim headlights, a tidy front fascia, and the automaker’s rectangular grille all help the Impreza have an uncluttered design. The rear end of the model is just as tidy, with rectangular taillights, a single exhaust outlet, and smooth lines. The exterior design is expected to remain the same for the 2022 model year.
The interior design of the 2022 Impreza is expected to share a lot of the same elements as the current model. Choosing usability over style, the current Impreza features a simple interior design. The main focus is on the center console, which features large dials, easy-to-read buttons, and a well-placed touchscreen. Additionally, the Impreza will continue to be one of the more spacious compact vehicles, offering generous seating in both rows.
Being a carryover model, the 2022 Impreza will come with the same tech features as the current model. We expect a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a four-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth to be standard. A larger 8-inch touchscreen, an eight-speaker audio system, Wi-Fi hot spot, navigation, and four USB ports will be optional.
Power for the Impreza will come from a 2.0-liter flat-four engine that produces 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission or an available continuously variable automatic transmission. All-wheel drive will continue to be standard on every Impreza.
The current Impreza comes with a rearview camera as standard. Optional features on the compact vehicle include adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring. The 2022 Impreza should be available with the same standard and available safety features. In the NHTSA’s testing, the Impreza earned a five-star safety rating, which should remain the same for the 2022 model.
