2018 Subaru Impreza 2.0i-S review

When Subaru says the Impreza is all-new, it really means it. How do the car's fresh platform and techy cabin stack up in top-spec 2.0i-S guise?

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium long-term review, report five: country and highway driving

Around town, we found a noticeable chink in the Subaru Impreza’s armour. A significant lack of low-end pull that makes getting up to speed quickly, overtaking or accelerating up a hill make it seem like you’re asking so much for the Impreza’s modest 2.0-litre petrol engine. However, what we did notice was that once you’re up and moving, the Impreza settles to offer a competent and enjoyable ride...

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium long-term review, report four: urban driving

The 2017 Subaru Impreza is becoming part of the furniture here at the CarAdvice office. It’s proved to be quite a likable thing with plenty to offer in areas like safety, comfort and tech, but this time we’ll take a look at how it performs in the day-to-day urban grind. I must say, initial feelings towards the Impreza’s driving manners around town were not begging for praise...

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium long-term review, report three: interior

We’re back in the 2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium, this time taking a look at the interior. Yet another area where I think the Subie excels. First impressions are great. A large 8.0-inch screen finished with piano black accents sits prominently in the middle of the dash, soft-touch plastics, chrome accents and faux carbon-fibre are scattered around the cockpit, and it becomes clear that Subaru has gone to great lengths to make the interior of the Impreza feel more upmarket than it really is...

2017 Subaru Impreza review

Read the full article here. The Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L sedan might be the pick of the company's impressive new small-car range. It's well-equipped, solid value and far more engaging to drive than before, while offering cheaper ownership costs and signature all-wheel drive surety. We just wish it looked a little sharper!

2017 Subaru Impreza review

Read the full article here. Car brands habitually overuse the phrase 'all-new', but in the case of the 2017 Subaru Impreza hatch and sedan range, it's apt. Under the MY17 Impreza's evolutionary skin sits the new modular platform that will underpin next-generation Subarus until 2025; a more tech-savvy and premium cabin; and a different, though conceptually similar, drivetrain...

Subaru Impreza 5-Door Concept Walkaround : 2015 Tokyo Motor Show

Read the article here. The all-new Subaru Impreza has been previewed in concept form at the Tokyo motor show. Though recent history would suggest the concept’s sharp lines will be softened dramatically in the transition to production, Subaru is adamant that the styling of 5-Door is faithful to the next-generation small car and that the design will also translate to sedan form...

Best small car: Ford Focus v Holden Astra v Honda Civic v Hyundai i30 v Kia Cerato v Mazda 3 v Peugeot 308 v Subaru Impreza v Toyota Corolla v Volkswagen Golf

While buyers continue to gravitate toward SUVs, small cars haven’t entirely lost their appeal. They account for about one-in-seven new vehicles sold this year, with this cluster of models forming the vast majority of the segment’s sales. We’re testing flagship variants here, with sticker prices between $30,000 and $40,000...

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

$30k Family car comparison

While the car industry seems intent on reinventing and cross-pollinating shapes, sizes and themes to create a different family vehicle, equally families who buy and use such vehicles can be incredibly diverse in terms of needs and wants...

2020 Subaru Impreza facelift unveiled in Japan

The facelifted Subaru Impreza hatch and sedan have been unveiled in Japan. It's a fairly subtle update with the front bumper being smoothed out and featuring fewer styling details, while the grille also looks to be a little shorter than before. The fog light pods and lower air intake have been unified into one wide blacked-out section...

Subaru recalls several models for ignition switch fix

Subaru Australia has issued a recall for a number of older-generation models to replace potentially faulty ignition switches installed between 17 February 2017 and 14 April 2019. According to the Japanese brand, vehicles fitted with the affected component could have “imperfections” in the switch’s ball springs, which could see the key position switch from ON to ACC position while the vehicle is in motion...

2018-19 Subaru Impreza recalled

Subaru Australia has become the second brand to recall cars because of improperly-tempered rear window glass, launching a recall for the 2018-19 Impreza. The campaign follows in the footsteps of one announced by Toyota earlier this week. According to Subaru, the left-hand rear door window may have been inadequately tempered because of an incorrect cooling process during manufacture...

Affected vehicles have been subject to previous recalls involving like-for-like replacement airbags as part of the ongoing Takata campaign, with the new ones not at risk of the well-documented fault...

2010 Subaru Impreza R (AWD) review

We bought our Subaru impreza sedan around 18 months ago. We initially went to the local Honda Dealership with the intention to buy a 2010 Honda Accord. As we were waiting for the salesman to get the keys, we noticed the blue Subaru that we were leaning against. We instead took that car for a test drive and was hooked. Our previous car was a 2003 BA Ford Falcon Futura sedan...

2010 Subaru Impreza R (AWD) review

I have never in my life driven a car that I cannot reasonably afford. This is for two reasons: firstly, I don’t want to work the streets to pay for any potential accidents; and secondly, not many Bentley dealerships let 21-year-olds with a patchy beard and bad BO go for a test drive. So that means there is a very limited number of vehicles I could write an article about...

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i-S (AWD) review

Having owned my Impreza for a little over a year now and racking up 42,000km, I don't have any regrets in my purchase. I traded in my 2010 V6 Mitsubishi Outlander that was heavy on fuel and had various problems. I stumbled across the Impreza on the lot of the dealership and had heard great things about the safety of its cars...

2003 Subaru Impreza WRX STI review

I bought my STI four years ago. It was stock, yet still quite fun. I bought the car as I am an avid Subaru fan. I like the fact it offers a raw driving experience, even when unmodified. The big STI wing on the back looks fantastic, and all the little STI emblems on the inside of the car look great and really set it apart from the WRX version...
