Review

The 2022 Subaru Impreza at an affordable price and equipped with a standard all-wheel drive is a suitable, albeit inconspicuous compact car. Subaru offers its smallest car as a sedan and hatchback with a manual or continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Impreza’s flat engine provides sluggish acceleration regardless of the gearbox, but the shift lever is inaccurate and we don’t support it. You’ll find a practical interior and an intuitive infotainment system in both the sedan and hatchback, and the base models have plenty of driver assistance, but only with a CVT. The playful nature and value of the 2022 Impreza make it a respectable choice in this class, but the average fuel economy and lack of sophistication put it at the bottom of our list.

What’s new in 2022?

Subaru is making the smallest changes to the Impreza lineup for 2022. Along with the new Sapphire Blue Pearl paint, the top trim Limited is now only offered in a hatchback body style.

Prices and which to buy

For practicality, we would have chosen a sunroof rather than a sedan. We also believe that the Premium model provides the best combination of features and value. It comes standard with steering wheel switches, heated front seats, a host of driver assistance (adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assistance and more) and an improved infotainment system that includes SiriusXM satellite radio, optional USB port, and an integrated USB port, and an integrated USB port. for smartphones. It should be added and a single package of options, as it provides control of blind areas with a warning of cross-movement behind, passive entry without hands and start button, electrically adjustable driver’s seat and sunroof.

Engine, transmission and performance

The Impreza is a hare-class tortoise with a four-cylinder engine that produces 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is, of course, standard. Both the sedan and the hatchback, with a small low level, require significant stress to keep the engine where it needs to be for power. A five-speed manual transmission is included our Impreza Sport sedan performed less sluggishly than CVT our long-term Sport hatch, but we actually prefer automatic, due to the clear and inaccurate nature of the manual. The Impreza achieves an almost perfect balance between gait and handling. The body does not lean in corners, and fast steering gives the compact car an extra sense of inspiration. We found that the relatively hard Impreza Sport brake pedal and the short braking distance during emergency braking are exemplary for this class.

Fuel economy and real miles per gallon

Choose any Impreza with CVT and you will be pleased with its fuel economy. Choose a manual transmission and you will visit your local gas station more often. The most efficient Impreza earns 28 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA; the least efficient model – a hatchback with a manual transmission – is rated at 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. Our Impreza Sport sedan with manual equipment released 30 miles per gallon in our real fuel economy test. For context, non-hybrid Toyota Corolla reached an impressive 41 mph, albeit with an automatic transmission. For more information on Impreza fuel economy, visit the page EPA website.

Interior, comfort and cargo

The interior of the Impreza may not have style, but it’s the best in design. Easy-to-read devices, simple controls and an intuitive climate control system make driving this car easy. In addition, the cabin has soft-touch plastic, soft armrests and an impressive fit and finish. The passenger volume is competitive in class, and tall drivers will appreciate the large legroom in the front seat of the model. The cargo compartments of both the sedan and hatchback Impreza are in a smaller part of the class, and in the cabin there are not many places to store small personal belongings, but you can fold the rear seat, which folds in a ratio of 60/40 for extra cargo space, if you need it need.

Infotainment program and communication

Each Impreza includes basic infotainment features such as compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. While the base and premium models have a 6.5-inch touch screen, the Sport and Limited trim is equipped with an 8.0-inch unit. Both systems boast logical menu structures and clear graphics.

Safety and driver assistance functions

Subaru equips models with automatic transmission with its EyeSight set driver assistance technology. Buyers were unlucky. For more information on the results of the Impreza crash test, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Road Safety Insurance Institute (IIHS) websites. Key security features include:

  • Frontal collision warning and automatic emergency braking are available
  • Blind zone monitoring and rear traffic crossing alerts are available
  • Lane departure warnings and lane keeping assistance are available

Warranty coverage and maintenance

The warranty on the Impreza is average for the class. Buyers who value a broad warranty would be wise to look at Hyundai Elantra or Kia Forte.

  • The limited warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles
  • The transmission warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles
  • No free scheduled maintenance
