About Subaru Impreza

If you're on a budget but want all-wheel drive (AWD) for optimal traction on slick roads when Mother Nature turns nasty, the Subaru Impreza is the car to beat. With a starting price just over $19,000, the 2016 Subaru Impreza is the least expensive all-wheel-drive car on the market. Beyond its grippy ways and low cost, the Subaru Impreza is practical, easy to drive, fuel-efficient and commands high resale value. The small Subie is available as a 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback, and in higher trims can be had with Subaru's EyeSight safety system that monitors traffic and can automatically apply the brakes in an emergency. The Impreza doesn't offer the range of powertrains found in rivals, but no other competitor comes standard with AWD.

"bought 2016 Impreza as a fourth (shared vehicle) for us to use for commuting and for winter driving in PA. This car has a lot of road noise due to a lot of rotating mass eg. 2 more drive axles, cheaper tires and economy sound insulation. (I knew this before purchase) It gets great fuel economy due to the naturally aspirated 4 cylinder and the CVT trans. Once you get used to the CVT it is fine. (much better than another CVT brand I have driven) I do not know yet how it will perform in the snow since we purchased it in February and it has not snowed in PA since. The infotainment system is HORRIBLE. The blue tooth sound quality is so poor at highway speeds that the person you are calling has a hard time understanding you.(windows are rolled up and HVAC fan on low or off) They tell me it is operating as designed and no further action will be done. The A/C system has a hard time keeping up on extremely hot days and has been checked and operating as designed. it is ok but not as good as my other vehicles. The steering is very sensitive and just takes some time to get used to it.(NOT a defect,but just different due to all wheel drive and suspension geometry with this electric steering system) It is a fairly priced vehicle for a cheaper all wheel drive alternative than a larger SUV."

"As reluctant as I was to trade in my 2009 Audi A4, I wanted something newer and with a little better gas mileage since I do a ton of traveling for work. The Impreza Limited fit the bill for what I was looking for. Two things I didn't want to give up was the heated leather seats and all-wheel drive. Since I previously owned two Subarus (a 2000 Forester and a 2009 Legacy), I knew the all-wheel drive would be top-notch and almost unstoppable in the PA winters. The interior is definitely roomy and could comfortably (very important word here) seat 5 adults. The handling is much better than expected and is very stiff and hugs the corners around sharp turns, something I was afraid of losing when I traded my Audi. I'm not comparing the two vehicles, but the difference between the two is not much. For all of the things that I love about this car, the common thing that everybody does not like is the acceleration. You're buying an $25,000 Impreza, not a McLaren MP4 or even an Impreza WRX or an STi. Of course there's gonna be an obvious acceleration issue. The way I look at it is that it's a trade-off for the all-wheel drive that will be more than useful during the winter months. Besides, 36+ mpg on an all-wheel drive vehicle? I'll take that any day of the week. I've hit 38.4 mpg on a 200 mile drive with the cruise on, and that's even with hitting the gas to get through traffic more than a few times. Everybody's second complaint is the stereo. The package I had came with a double-DIN sized stereo with HD Radio built in. It's adequate at best, but I won't waste time and space reviewing this since you can easily upgrade the stereo for $200-300 at your local electronics store. The interior itself is somewhat plain. Not something that you'd look inside and go "wow!", but being the entry level Subaru I wasn't expecting to be blown away by the interior. That said, if there was some thing that could be improved, this would be high on my list. There is nothing that I don't like about this car, but there is some room for improvement."

1 ½ cubic yards of mulch with still room for a passenger

"Our other car is 2013 Mercedes C300 AWD. Instead of taking over the 2012 Ben, I opted for a new Suby. Why pay expensive maintenance and premium gas? I wouldn't had consider this if not a hatchback and the limited edition-both well worth the extra price. Great value for the money. Unlike the Benz when I want any combination of heat/cold/defrost it is instant and I don't have to look at the controls.I easily can change the air and cabin filters. Handling is great. Hatchback hauls lots of stuff. 1 ½ cubic yards of mulch. Also my wife's real estate signs and I don't even have to put the rear seats down. Put on 4 Blizzak snow tires and in spring replaced with Michelins. This is my "common sense" answer to having a Miata.Now I may consider the new platform they are coming out with. Previous cars I have own Lexus, Volvos,Honda Accords."
