2020 Subaru Impreza Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

Updated on: February 14, 2020

Aaron Smith Automotive Journalist


Subaru's renowned reliability, great resale value, and quirky engine are still there. But thanks to the use of new Subaru global architecture and thorough re-engineering, the fifth-generation Impreza is also refined and comfortable with great sound deadening, pliant ride and roomy interiors. On the technology front, the new Impreza gets Android Auto and Apple CarPlay in all trims.

However, the 152 hp boxer 4 can frustrate you with its lazy acceleration. That said, the excellent CVT and lively steering do inject a dose of fun. Also, the small engine delivers exception efficiency for an AWD vehicle. All these make the Impreza a great everyday driver. The AWD is no longer the only reason to get an Impreza.

Expert Review


Compact car segment is crowded with big names like Corolla, Civic, Cruze and more. However, if you live in the northwest or if you just want to look different, the Subaru Impreza can woo you with its standard All-Wheel Drive and iconic boxer engine. Even without AWD or exotic engine, the Impreza is a genuine alternative to those big names.

The Impreza, over its years of existence in the US, has been loved by the consumers because of its low depreciation value, great reliability and practicality. The Impreza does seem to do replicate the same qualities but let’s go deep into the review, to find out more about the Sedan.

2020 Subaru Impreza Features

The 2018 Subaru Impreza price ranges from $18,595 to $24,195 (5-door has a $500 premium across all trim). The engine stays same throughout the range – a 152 hp 2.0 L boxer 4 and AWD is standard (it is a Subaru after all). Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard too but the base and premium trim gets smaller 6.5-inch touchscreen (Sport and Limited trim gets 8.0-inch touchscreen).

The base Impreza 2.0i gets a 5 speed manual as standard (not recommended for its appalling fuel economy) and an optional CVT (recommended: $1000) that improves fuel efficiency considerably. Next is the Impreza Premium ($21,295) that adds a standard CVT with paddle shifters along with optional Moon-roof and more.

The Premium trim is the one to go for as it gets all the features of the base trim along with the CVT transmission as standard. Also, it gets advanced safety features like lane assist, blind-spot monitoring that too at a low price.

2020 Subaru Impreza Engine and Performance

The Impreza gets a single 2.0 Liter Naturally Aspirated Boxer 4 engine. Although the boxer engine may evoke Porsche in your mind, the power output will immediately turn you off. With 152 hp and 145 pounds-feet of torque, it bears no resemblance to those WRC Subarus. For comparison, the civics 1.5 L turbo 4 develops 174 hp.

That said, the engine responds crisply to the pedal inputs. The base Impreza and Impreza Sport get a 5-Speed manual as standard. The 5-speed manual transmission feels aged compared to the 6-speed manuals on the competition. However, a CVT is optional on these trims and standard on all other trims.

The Standard CVT transmission offers “dull” acceleration but this may be due to the fact that the same has been tuned for extracting better efficiency out of the Motor. Aside from this, the top end ‘limited’ trim comes with Paddle Shifters coupled to the CVT that allows the driver to take control of the gears via a 7 Speed Gear Mechanism.The new Subaru Impreza is at par with the performance of its competitors.

Acceleration 

Though a whole lot of improvements have been made to its older variants, the 2020 Impreza's acceleration is not something that would really impress you. Though it is packed with enough to get you zipping past traffic in the city, it remains rather unimpressive on highways. This drawback is mainly due to the Impreza's Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission, also called as the CVT.

 2020 Subaru Impreza Sedan Acceleration
 2020 Subaru Impreza Sedan it covers 0 to 60 in just 8.4 sec.

The CVT, incorporated mainly to make driving in the city smoother and easier, lets the engine speed rise and fall more smoothly, without following the mechanics of the traditional automatic transmission. Though the Subaru Impreza pulls off an impressive 7-speed transmission under heavy throttle, it in a way slows acceleration. But on the plus side, when your foot goes to the floor, the CVT adjusts engine speed for optimum acceleration, and in the process reduces the noise that is otherwise produced in a conventional transmission.

One look and you can ascertain that the 2017 Subaru Impreza is not the fastest car among its competitors. While it does a 0-60 MPH in 8.4 seconds, the Jetta does it in 7.7 seconds, beating the Impreza with an impressive margin of 0.5seconds. Even the quarter-mile performance of the Impreza is not something to brag about. While the rest of its competitors clock it in under 16 seconds, the Impreza takes 17.4s.

Ride and Handling

Take the 2020 Subaru Impreza for a spin and you will notice how much driving this car reminds you of driving an Audi. Especially in the corners. The new rethought design and electrically assisted steering pull off an impressive ratio of 12.0:1, which enables a much smoother ride. The elaborate and sophisticated damping clips, along with the quicker steering ensures a smoother ride by soaking up the impacts with tolerance compliance. The suspension too is tastefully crafted to enhance the driving experience.

The car's centre of gravity has been lowered and the maker's say that this has cut the body roll in the Impreza by up to 50 per cent. Along with this, the active torque vectoring that has been designed to adjust the torque that is distributed to each wheel helps maximize the grip when constantly changing terrains. This creates tighter steering feel while cornering.

Braking

The makers of the Subaru Impreza have left nothing to chance when it comes to the performance and safety of the car. The Impreza comes with an automatic pre-collision braking system and reverse  automatic braking system that ensures the driver's safety.

The Subaru Impreza can stop from 60 MPH in 120 feet. That’s more than the Chevrolet Cruze and far slower than the Honda Civic. The braking performance is laudable and the pedal has a reassuring feel.

2020 Subaru Impreza Fuel Economy

The Subaru Impreza sedan with CVT delivers 28 mpg in city and 38 mpg on the highway. These numbers are impressive for an AWD vehicle but the competitors deliver better results if you don’t need AWD. The 5-Speed Manual though delivers just 24 MPG in city and 32 MPG on the highway. These are horrible numbers for a compact car.

The Subaru Impreza's fuel economy ratings are not the best. While it offers 28 MPG in the city, the Honda Civic LX offers up to 32. On the highway too, while the Impreza offers 38 MPG, the Honda Civic LX offers an impressive 36 - the highest among its competitors. 

2020 Subaru Impreza Interior

On the inside too, the 2020 Subaru Impreza is much more expressive than its previous models. With a plain, yet striking dashboard, console and other materials the car radiates a comfortable vide. The gauge cluster, the touchscreen display, and the console come enclosed in varying rectangular shapes with bevelled edges. And above the centre stack sits the secondary display. All in all, the interiors add a dash of character to the car.

The Subaru Impreza interior combines modernity and class with aplomb. The layout is simple and ergonomics are spot on. Every surface is tightly sculpted and most of the surface that are touched frequently are covered in soft-touch materials. The Subaru designers have used dark and light textures brilliantly.

In short, from the multi-panel seats to the seats and the stitching along with the doors, the Impreza's cabin is lovely. As always, Subaru has tried to keep it simple. Almost everything inside this car can be easily operated without diverting the attention of the driver. While all its competitors can seat 5 people comfortably, the dimensions of the Impreza will go on to show that it offers the most spacious interiors.

Cargo Capacity

Subaru Impreza offers enough cargo space to get you going but it still is pretty small if you are looking to carry luggage for a weekend getaway. Additionally, the improved body style allows for additional cargo rails in the roof. One can add a variety of accessories to these rails, thereby creating more space.

Every rival car has a trunk bigger than the Impreza but there's one advantage that Impreza has is the 60/40 splitting seats allowing you to carry more luggage easily.

2020 Subaru Impreza Exterior

The Subaru Impreza blends great road manners with great style. Sleeker and crisp in shape, it is 1.5 inches longer and wider and about an inch lower than its previous models. While the trademark hexagonal grille still features, the body lines along each side rise over the wheel well and fall along with the doors.

The window line also rises at the back and the lights, both front, and rear appear slightly big thanks to this new design. With a shape that is more fluid and the incorporation of accent lines to allow for a more 'sculptural' design of the body. This makes the Subaru Impreza a bit more fashion-forward than its predecessors.

2020 Subaru Impreza Competition

Subaru Impreza vs Honda Civic

The Honda Civic is the most applauded compact car and for good reasons. It somehow offers fun-to-drive characteristics and great practicality in a single budget-friendly and efficient package. However, the Subaru Impreza is roomier, has the great interior quality and above all – has AWD.

Honda civic
2020 honda civic

The Civic's fuel efficiency, braking performance and other performance-related statics are all slightly better than the Subaru Impreza, but Subaru cars are known for their commitment to the drivers' safety. No wonder, the Impreza comes with a long list of safety features.

Subaru Impreza vs Mazda 3

The Mazda 3 is the go-to car for driving enthusiasts. With its sublime handling, responsive powertrain and well-sorted suspension, there is little that’s as exciting as this tiny hatch. The tastefully made interior and sharp exterior will get praises. Now it’s practical too with roomy interiors and efficient engine. However, the Impreza is no less fun and its standard AWD is a definite USP.

Mazda 3
2020 Mazda 3

Mazda is however yet to update the Mazda 3 for 2020 and is showing its age of late. The Subaru offers a Better infotainment System than the Mazda and the Mazda just can’t match the space offered by the Impreza on the Inside.

Subaru Impreza vs Chevrolet Cruze

The Chevrolet Cruze differentiates itself with its pliant ride quality and upscale cabin appointments. The Cruze also looks very upscale from outside too and it’s American if that matters. So if you want to be hushed away in comfort, get the Cruze. The Impreza also offers great interior refinement and can entertain you when you choose to drive too.

Chevrolet cruze
20202 Chevrolet Cruze

Yet, the Chevrolet beats the Subaru with ease when it comes to acceleration. When it comes to braking, both cars perform almost the same. But when it comes to fuel economy, the Chevrolet does a much better job than the Subaru.

2020 Subaru Impreza Final Verdict

Subaru Impreza is somewhat distinct from your average compact car. It does excel in most of the matrices that define a compact car – low cost of ownership, practicality, technology, fuel efficiency, driveability, refined manners, and city-friendly characteristics. However, it has a quirky boxer 4 engine and standard AWD.

All these are backed up by Subaru’s excellent reliability. The Impreza is one of the slowest depreciating compact cars and has best in class interior space. It gets plenty of active safety features and driver assistance systems bundled in Subaru’s EyeSight. Also, Subaru Impreza gets a top crash rating from IIHS and NHTSA as well.
