2018 Subaru Impreza Review, Price, Specs
Standard all-wheel drive, excellent safety ratings, sedan and hatchback configuration choices, and comprehensive infotainment features make the compact Subaru Impreza an attractive choice. The handsome yet soothing exterior and durable business-like cabin give the Impreza a wide range of appeal, while the predictable athletic chassis provides driving pleasure. We hope that the engine will generate more power and be combined with a better transmission. Focusing on equipment and all-weather confidence, the Impreza is a car I’d be happy to recommend, but the powertrain needs to be improved to achieve greatness.
What’s New in 2018
After a complete redesign last year, the Impreza will see one simple change in 2018. Premium, Sport, and Limited model headlamps turn on automatically when the wiper is activated.
Original manufacturer’s suggested retail price:
- Basic: $ 19,355
- Premium: $ 22,155
- Sports: $ 22,955
- Limited: $ 25,055
Engine, transmission, performance
The Impreza’s 2.0-liter flat four produces 152 horsepower, but unfortunately the stall door does not open fully up to 6000 rpm. Torque at 145 lb-ft peaks at high revs of 4000 rpm. The Impreza, which has few low-end punches, requires a lot of goding to keep the engine in the center of the power band. The Impreza’s indifferent acceleration is exacerbated by the awkward feel and poor gearing of a standard 5-speed manual gearbox, or the annoying drone of an available continuously variable transmission (CVT). On public roads, the Impreza provides a nearly perfect balance of ride quality and handling. Staying incredibly flat and neutral throughout the turn, the rack and pinion steering system benefits from a quick ratio that gives the car even more power.

Interior, comfort, and cargo
The Impreza’s interior may be lacking in style, but it’s ergonomically pleasing with clear gauges, simple controls and an intuitive temperature control system. In addition, the Impreza cabin benefits from a soft-touch plastic band, soft armrests, and an impressive fit and finish. The upper trim and options add great features such as heated leather trim power seats, automatic air conditioning control and a variety of driving assistance features. Both the Impreza sedan and the hatchback cargo compartment are on the smaller side of the class. Nonetheless, both body styles benefit from the standard 60/40 split foldable rear seats, allowing for additional luggage compartment. The interior storage space is only the door panel and center console.
Infotainment and connectivity
The base and premium level Impreza have a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, while the Sport and Limited models have a larger 8.0-inch unit. Both systems boast a logical menu structure and crisp graphics. All Impreza include key infotainment features such as: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The in-dash navigation system is bundled in a package that also includes a premium audio system, sunroof, and many automated safety features and is dedicated to top-end limited trim.
