I plan on having this for the next ten years. Maybe a little too much though. The redesign from 2012 yielded an exterior that's almost exactly the same size as the model it replaced, yet Subaru has made better use of the space, with a new seat design that has more passenger space and now folds flat. With a set of snow tires you won't worry about a thing. Fuel economy is impressive for an all-wheel drive car, but falls a bit short against other compact cars. According to the company, 95 percent of Subarus sold in the past 10 years are still on the road. The hatchback's cargo versatility gives it an edge in practicality over the sedan version.
New for 2014 is a rearview camera that uses the audio display screen. Unlike the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus that it competes with, the Impreza comes standard with all-wheel drive. No info means this data may exist but was not provided. But hey, what a better test for the Subaru Impreza wagon? How about 6 standard airbags and 44 cubic feet of storage space? No matter the trim, the Impreza is powered by a 148-horsepower, 2. Whatever it takes to hide the front end.
The price was good, it gets good mileage, it's attractive and we've had a lot of fun with it. The options list on the Impreza is quite limited, with the only factory options being a moonroof, or a package pairing the moonroof with a navigation system -- including a 6. The recall began July 2014 and second notifications will run through November 2014. Remedy Subaru will notify their owners. See Also: The car we acquired is a 2014 Impreza 2. Topped with their conspicuous black roof racks, Sport models look more ready for a safari than a road rally.
Easy to Become Familiar With Amanda picked up the car on a Friday evening after a long week at work. More so on anything running a turbo. Anyone used to the kind of vehicle control provided by a manual transmission, but not wishing to thump a clutch pedal every few seconds, will find these paddle-shifters a must. Took it to the dealer; they said that was normal for a newer car. I've only had the car for a few months. Overall just a really well-made car, and I get free car washes for the life of the car from the Subaru dealership I bought it at. It now has a 30 amp in it, I'm happy to take my chances burning up the wiper motors.
Bought the Impreza Hatchback and its perfect for city errands and an occasional longer trip. The Impreza has less-than-impressive highway acceleration, but its standard all-wheel drive inspires confidence around turns and provides excellent traction in wet weather. Seat, steering wheel and mirrors were all fine-tuned to her liking quickly. I am not a car girl but I appreciate the all-wheel drive and noticed a huge difference in better handling since I took it for a test drive. Premium models upgrade to alloy wheels of a pleasingly simple 10-spoke design.
I don't care enough to do that. After turning the car off, it works again. I put a 20amp in, did it again. We all know oil is the life of the motor. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Subaru extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. With the money we saved on gas and the price of the vehicle, we could rent a U haul van or Lowes truck 30 times to move a very large item. The 2014 Subaru Impreza gets high marks for its steady ride, all-weather capabilities and predictable steering and braking.
The small trunk is still wide and long, it is just shallow as the floor is higher than a normal front-wheel drive compact. You can't get an oil wrench to get a good grip. And that 36-mpg highway rating enables an impressive cruising range of up to 523 miles.

My brother is 6ft tall and has no issue sitting in the back.
Some even refer to it now as an all-wheel drive Corolla. The Impreza comes standard with all-wheel drive and seven airbags. The recall began December 2016. Failed to get data, please try again. It's hard to figure out how to adjust the radio, set up the phone pairing. While not necessarily the most stylish car on the road, the Impreza also no longer looks awkward or dowdy. The Impreza sedan has a subpar 12-cubic-foot trunk, but the hatchback offers almost double the space behind its rear seats.
The seatbacks of the front seats have been scalloped to create extra legroom for passengers in the rear, and ease of entry and exit benefits from that update, too. I think the entry Impreza is a little bare. Pieces and parts have broken off, more than once. Improvements for 2015 reduced interior noise and significantly upgraded infotainment and connectivity features. Step up to the Premium and it comes with a windshield wiper deicer, 16-inch silver-finish alloy wheels, cruise control, heated front seats, a center console with armrest lid, six speakers and chrome door handles -- as well as a rear stabilizer bar that helps improve handling with the larger wheels. To our eyes the four-door sedan isn't quite as good-looking; it can come off as tall and stubby from some angles, but the five-door hatchback is quite neatly styled at the rear.
