Subaru Impreza

2016 Subaru Impreza

Among compacts, the all-wheel-drive Subaru Impreza is unbeatable for snow and foul weather. Impreza comes in hatchback and sedan versions (plus WRX and Crosstrek versions covered separately). All are able to handle primitive roads, come standard with Subarus proven all-wheel drive, and get good fuel economy.

The Impreza got a fresh face for the 2015 model year, slimmer pillars for visibility, upgraded infotainment, new safety features, and better fuel economy. For 2016, Impreza carries over with no substantial changes.

The 2016 Subaru Impreza is EPA-rated at 28/37 City/Highway miles per gallon with the CVT, or 3 mpg less with the manual, all excellent for all-wheel drive.

The 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine sends 148 horsepower and 145 foot-pounds of torque to all four wheels. A lovely five-speed manual gearbox is standard, while upper models get Subarus Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), which yields better fuel mileage but is sluggish when power is needed quickly.

The 2016 Impreza leads its class in safety. A rearview camera comes standard, while an optional EyeSight system uses cameras and sensors for adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and pre-collision braking. The IIHS rates the system Superior and gives Impreza a mark of Top Safety Pick Plus, with a top score in the tough new small-overlap frontal test (telephone pole). The NHTSA gives the Impreza five stars overall.


2015 Subaru Impreza

With fresh styling, the 2015 Subaru Impreza is quite dashing and, as before, inexpensive to operate. Its rigid structure, low-mounted boxer four-cylinder engine and on-demand all-wheel drive follow faithfully in the Subaru tradition. Indeed, this fourth-generation Impreza boasts all-weather capability and premium-brand engineering. Yet its wrapped in well-styled good looks and promises frugal fuel economy.

Impreza comes in four- and five-door models, the latter offering wagon-like utility and nice proportions.

For 2015, all Impreza models have a fresh appearance, along with several notable refinements. A new front end, including the grille, bumper and headlights, gives the 2015 Impreza a closer kinship to Subarus newly redesigned, larger Legacy.

Newly available EyeSight Driver Assist technology for 2015 includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-collision Braking and throttle management, plus Lane Departure and Lane Sway Warnings. Offered on Limited four-door and Sport Limited models, the system includes new steering-responsive fog lights that can move independently, depending on vehicle speed and steering angle, to enhance illumination in the direction youre turning. All Imprezas now include a rearview camera.

For 2015, the base 2.0i model adds standard cruise control and a 6.2 touch-screen infotainment system with HD radio and Starlink smartphone integration. Subaru claims that new outside mirrors enhance aerodynamics, as does a low-profile trunk spoiler on four-door models. Impreza sedans also have an LED center stoplight.

Limited and Sport models add new welcome lighting. New options for four-door Limited and the Sport Limited include keyless access with pushbutton start. A remote start system is one of many options available at Subaru dealerships.

All Imprezas are powered by a 148-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which delivers 37 mpg Highway/28 mpg City on the EPA cycle, making the Impreza is the most fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive car in America. In fact, Impreza rivals some of the best front-wheel-drive compacts for fuel efficiency.

Subarus Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), said to be retuned for 2015 to deliver a more natural stepped shift pattern, now is standard on Premium and Limited models. On the base model, the available CVT has a selectable Low range. Upper models include paddle shifters that provide six virtual ratios, when manual selection is desired. A 5-speed manual gearbox remains standard on the base 2.0i and Sport Premium trim levels.

New infotainment systems are available for 2015. The top infotainment system, offered on four-door Limited and Sport Limited, adds a voice-command navigation system, plus SiriusXM NavTraffic and NavWeather.

Subarus Impreza delivers an easygoing feel on the road. Though not particularly sporty in nature, this indisputably sensible compact handles very easily (almost in the traditional small-car sense, though updated to modern tastes and technology).

The Subaru Impreza has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick rating. And the Impreza is designated a Partial-Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) in all 50 states.

Subaru has long established itself as a builder of rugged small cars. According to the company, some 95 percent of Subarus sold in the past 10 years are still on the road. In addition, the Impreza delivers efficiency, value and appeal.
