2016 Impreza

2015 Subaru Impreza sedan

Pros: Standard (and affordable) all-wheel drive; spacious-for-the-class cabin, smooth ride

Cons: Noisier all-around than most class rivals; finicky touchscreen controls; mediocre acceleration

CG Says: For 2015, the Subaru Impreza gets several updates, including revised front styling, a quieter cabin, upgraded interior trim, new infotainment systems, and the availability of Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. Also, EPA fuel-economy estimates for Imprezas with the CVT transmission are improved by 1 mpg in both city and highway driving, to 28 and 37 respectively. Impreza brings to the very competitive compact-car market some rare-for-the-class features including the choice of a hatchback-like station-wagon body style, standard all-wheel drive, and the brand’s signature “boxer” engine layout. Impreza delivers a well-rounded package that’s roomy, pleasant to drive, and very practical. Downsides include an engine that isn’t particularly powerful and can be quite noisy at times. For shoppers adventuresome enough to look beyond the default choices in small cars, the Impreza could be a very satisfying pick.
