For the 2017 model year the Subaru Impreza is one of the new models added to the automotive lineup to be completely rebuilt. Although it’s been upgraded and comes with a rebuilt design, this car is still a true Subaru through and through. The pure Subaru aspects of a perfect flat four engine, the AWD handling and the sporty fun are still part of the car that now has a sharper steering dynamic, stiffer chassis and more refined suspension. You’ll love the way this new version of the Impreza leave and impression on you with just a simple test drive.
The beauty and genius of the Subaru lineup are often overlooked, but it’s hard to argue with cars that come on a compact car budget and offer you the benefit of full time AWD to make them easy to enjoy on the road. This new Impreza brings you a quieter cabin and improved interior materials to make it feel more like a car that’s plays closer to luxury than the Subaru name suggests. If you’re looking for a great new car to drive, don’t pass by the Subaru dealership without at least checking out the Impreza to see what it can offer you.
With everything on the Impreza being new there are tons of amazing features for you to enjoy but two stand out above the rest right away. The standard AWD is and most likely will always be a feature that is impressive and perfect on the Subaru lineup. This alone makes sure you have a great way to handle the foul weather. The Eyesight Driver Assist is another item that makes a difference in the ride. This system uses cameras to look at the road ahead and alert you of possible issues using the active cruise control and collision avoidance systems present on the Impreza.
When you look inside the engine bay of the new Impreza a familiar face is staring back at you. The 2.0-liter flat four-cylinder engine is the only one offered for the Impreza that you choose to drive. This engine is able to provide you with 152 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque which is the perfect balance of power and lightweight build for this part of the car to be right for you. The engine can be attached to either a five-speed manual or CVT transmission to give you the ride you want and allow you the feel of the road you’re looking for.
For the new Impreza you’ll have a fantastic menu of standard items to enjoy on the car. This list includes the Starlink audio system, a 6.5-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a rearview camera, air conditioning, cruise control and an incline start assist feature. The base transmission is the manual on this lowest trim, but the CVT is standard on the rest of the trim levels for the new Impreza. This is the low priced but feature laden mode that helps to give you a great ride and what you want at this price.
Moving up to the options for this car you’ll be able to step up to the Premium model and have the CVT that mimics a seven-speed automatic shifting, upgraded shocks, an improved audio system, welcome lighting, illuminated power window switches and more. The Sport trim is being offered with more aggressive wheels, better tires, sport tuned suspension settings, red stitching on the dash and doors, another upgrade for the audio system that is pushed through a larger touch screen. Finally, on the Limited model at the top of the list, the comfort comes from the six-way power driver’s seat, a color LCD screen in the instrument cluster, steering responsive headlights and much more.
