New, and Dressed to Impress
Totally redesigned last year, the Subaru Impreza has new styling, a more upscale, comfortable and quiet interior, and improved steering and suspension. Offered as a sedan or a hatchback, Subaru's compact car stays true to the brand's trademark values of safety, sporty dynamics and standard all-wheel drive, all at a starting price that's just above $19,000.
Driving the Impreza
"The steering feels lively and direct in your hands, and the suspension offers up surprising grip, even on lower-end models. On the highway or around town, it's also quieter than you might expect, thanks to the new chassis and impressive sound deadening." Find out more in our 2018 Subaru Impreza full review.

WRX and WRX STI
The Impreza is all-new, but its evil and eviler twins, the WRX and WRX STI, remain on their existing platforms for the time being. However, the 268-horsepower WRX and 305-horsepower WRX STI receive a variety of enhancements for 2018, including steering and suspension changes that promise even more engaging driving dynamics.
Build and Price
A base 2018 Subaru Impreza sedan starts just over $19,000 (with destination), and 5-door hatchback models are $500 extra. A well-optioned Impreza can reach about $30,000, while 2018 WRX and WRX STI performance models range from under $28,000 to $44,000.
