Overview

What's New

For 2022, pricing for the Subaru Impreza remains unchanged from the previous year. All features carry forward with a new exterior color scheme offered. Also, the Limited trim is now exclusive to the hatchback.

Choosing Your Subaru Impreza

Subaru offers the 2022 Impreza as a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback. The Impreza comes with standard all-wheel drive, a four-cylinder engine, and a manual gearbox or continuously variable transmission.

Engine Choices

The 2022 Subaru Impreza features one engine choice. A 2.0-liter flathead four-cylinder develops 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard on the base trims as well as on the hatchback’s Sport trim. Otherwise, a continuously variable transmission is included or available.

With the CVT, the Impreza earns a combined 30 to 32 mpg. The models equipped with the manual transmission earn just 25 or 26 mpg combined city and highway.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

In either body style, the Subaru Impreza supplies room for five, although four is the better choice. The sedan’s trunk capacity measures 12.3 cubic feet – and that’s small for the segment.

In comparison, the Nissan Sentra supplies 14.3 cubic feet of storage capacity. As for the hatchback, it offers 20.8 cubic feet of standard cargo capacity and 55.3 cubic feet with the rear seat folded, rivaling what some small crossovers offer.

Safety Features

Subaru equips every Impreza with the mandated rearview camera. As for driver-assist features, they are available through package or trim upgrades.

These features include forward collision warning, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning. Lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are also standard.

Automatic high beam, adaptive LED headlights, and a rear-seat reminder are optional.

Connectivity

Among the standard features for the 2022 Impreza is a 6.5-inch touch-screen display. Subaru also includes Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a four-speaker audio system.

Other features available include satellite radio, HD radio, and two USB ports. An 8-inch touch-screen display, navigation, and an 8-speaker audio system are available.

Subaru Impreza

Impreza Base – MSRP From $19,755/$20,255

The base Impreza features steel wheels, halogen headlights, cloth seats, and full power accessories. Upgrading to the CVT costs $1,300, but it also includes the Subaru Eyesight Driver Assist Technology suite of safety features. This package includes pre-collision braking and throttle management, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and sway warning.

Impreza Premium – MSRP From $23,155/$23,655

The Premium trim builds on the base model’s equipment level with the CVT package. Fog lights, heated exterior mirrors, a heated windshield, and heated front seats are included. The hatchback models gain roof rails.

Impreza Sport – MSRP From $23,555/$23,955

For just $800 more than the Premium, the Sport trim adds several features. Keep in mind, though, the manual transmission is standard. Otherwise, the CVT is a $1,100 upgrade. This trim coms with 18-inch machine finish alloy wheels, an exclusive sport-tuned suspension, and active torque vectoring. An 8-inch touchscreen display, keyless entry with push-button start, aluminum pedals, and leather touchpoints are included.

Impreza Limited – MSRP From $27,355

Exclusive to the hatchback, the range-topping Limited comes with LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, and 17-inch machine-finished alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin features a leather-trimmed interior. Automatic climate control, a 6-way power driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter are standard. The full contingent of Subaru’s driver-assist safety features are included with this trim. Also, an optional package ($2,350) that bundles navigation, the Harman Kardon audio system, and a power moonroof is available.

CarsDirect Tip

The hatchback is far more versatile than the sedan and never costs more than $500 above the corresponding sedan trim. The generous amount of cargo space makes it an easy pick. And, if you want the Limited trim, that’s your only body style choice.

Keeping it simple. The 2022 Subaru Impreza is about to turn 30, but it’s just as simple and dependable as ever. It isn’t a car for speed demons (aside from WRX models, covered separately), but it fulfills its eco-car mission with cheer.

Exterior design is restrained and uncomplicated. We prefer the lines of the hatchback, which has a tapering roofline that lends a bit of flair.

The inside is equally bland, but equally pleasant. No one will mistake the Impreza for a BMW, but it doesn’t feel as cheap as many cars in its price range. Subaru’s interiors have improved over the past decade, and the Impreza is a good example of simplicity done well.

Compact capability. The Impreza is a compact car that competes with models like the Honda Civic and Mazda3. The ace up its sleeve is Subaru’s vaunted all-wheel drive system, which is standard on every Impreza. On wet and snowy roads, the Impreza is miles ahead of most rivals.

The Impreza compares well on cabin space, too. It has more leg room than a Mazda3 or Toyota Corolla, and the second row is comfortable for two adults (though it’s a bit narrow for three).

Cargo space is an average of 12 cubic feet in the sedan, but the hatchback is highly practical. With up to 55 cu ft of capacity, it’s as versatile as many compact crossovers.


Subaru Impreza

Fun factor. Among the Impreza’s virtues, acceleration is conspicuously absent. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 152 horsepower, which is on the low end of the segment. It’s fine around town, but highway passes are leisurely.

The suspension does its best to inject a bit of personality. Handling is balanced, but the standard Impreza doesn’t hold a candle to the racy WRX. The Sport trim gets stiffer shocks, but it isn’t worth the tradeoff in ride quality.

The Impreza starts with a manual, with a CVT available for $1,300. Given the Impreza’s mild-mannered personality, this is one case where we’d take the CVT. It has a habit of droning, but it improves fuel efficiency by 5 mpg combined.

Bang for the buck. The Impreza is an impressively good value. It’s cheaper than its most important competitors, none of which come with standard all-wheel drive.

In base trim, the Impreza is sparse but serviceable. The standard touchscreen is on the small side, but it still comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The hatchback is a $500 upgrade, and we’d recommend it. The CVT brings additional safety features like automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control, which we think justify the upgrade.

Even better, bump up to the Premium trim. For a little over $3,000, the Premium gets better sound deadening, an improved suspension, and heated front seats. The CVT is standard, making the Impreza Premium a proper bargain.

Final thoughts. The Impreza’s biggest flaw is an anemic powertrain, but it’s an easy one to overlook. Value, capability, and simplicity make the Impreza a worthy choice for shoppers on a budget. Especially for shoppers in snow states, the Impreza should be on the shortlist.
