Model Preview

With the Subaru Impreza set to turn six years old since its total redesign in 2017, the compact vehicle is rumored to be getting a redesign in the first half of 2022 for the 2023 model year. Subaru hasn’t confirmed that the Impreza will be receiving any changes for 2023 or what’s in store for the vehicle, but we would be surprised to see the Impreza arrive without any changes.

A fully redesigned 2023 Impreza would arrive with a new design that would share a lot of elements as the new WRX. We expect the compact vehicle to receive sharper headlights, an angular front bumper, and more prominent body lines. At the back, the Impreza could benefit from smaller, more triangular taillights and a more defined rear bumper. We expect the upcoming 2023 Impreza to continue to be available in both sedan and hatchback body styles.

The current Impreza features a spartan cabin with few frills or standout design elements. A redesign would result in a more modern look with improved materials. A redesign could see the 2023 Subaru Impreza arrive with a look that’s inspired by the WRX. In the WRX, the dashboard is centered around a larger central touchscreen, while a few physical controls flank the screen. Sharp air vents and a thick steering wheel could also arrive for the redesign.

We expect the 2023 Impreza to arrive with more tech features than the current model that’s on sale. The current Impreza comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and four audio speakers. The redesign could see the Impreza gain two seven-inch touchscreens as standard equipment and an available 11.6-inch vertically oriented touchscreen as an option.

Subaru hasn’t provided any information on what kind of engine the 2023 Subaru Impreza will come with. The current Impreza has a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired to a standard five-speed manual transmission and is available with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). We could see the upcoming Impreza utilize an updated version of the same engine or arrive with an all-new engine. All we do know is that all-wheel drive will continue to be standard.

If Subaru continues to offer the 2023 Impreza with a manual transmission, the vehicle’s list of safety features won’t change much. All that’s standard on the current Impreza is a rearview camera. Optional features available with the CVT include forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, front and reverse automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high-beam assist.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2023 Subaru Impreza is expected to arrive at dealerships in the summer of 2022.

Since Subaru hasn’t stated what’s in store for the 2023 Impreza, we don’t know how much the vehicle will cost. A full redesign will raise the vehicle’s price. Currently, the Impreza ranges from $19,790 up to $27,390 with destination.

The 2023 Subaru Impreza will compete against the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Mazda3, and Hyundai Elantra.
