Subaru Impreza

The Subaru Impreza is a hatchback or a sedan which has become arguably the brand's most well-known vehicle.

Launched in the early 1990s but now into its fifth model generation, the Subaru Impreza has changed significantly in its history.

Once the badge which the sports car WRX was based on, the two models are now separate, with the Subaru Impreza and Subaru WRX no longer directly linked by name.

The Subaru Impreza range starts from just below $24,000 for a base model and can reach above $31,000 in 'S' specification. Each variant is available as a hatchback or sedan.

All Subaru Imprezas come with a 2.0-litre petrol engine and a continuously variable transmission.

Rival models to the Subaru Impreza include the Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus, or Honda Civic, all of which also have a hot hatch variant as rival to the Subaru WRX.

Is the Subaru Impreza fuel efficient?

According to its official test, the Subaru Impreza consumes 7.0 litres per 100km though, as with most claimed figures, real-world driving will likely be slightly higher.

How do you turn on AWD in a Subaru Impreza?

A Subaru Impreza, as with almost all Subaru models, is AWD all the time. There is no way to turn it on or off.

How many kilometres can a Subaru Impreza last?

As with most modern cars with a relative economy focus, proper maintenance can allow a Subaru Impreza to run for a couple of hundred thousand kilometres without any critical mechanical failures, though specific circumstances can negatively affect the mileage a car will last. Subaru grants owners of its cars a warranty of 5 years with unlimited kilometres.
