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...

Subaru Impreza Comparisons

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...

Small sedan comparison: Toyota Corolla Ascent v Honda Civic VTi-S v Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L

The last time we took a close look at the small sedan segment in the form of a comprehensive three-way comparison, the new-generation Honda Civic stole the cookies from the previous segment leader, the Hyundai Elantra and a slightly more left field combatant, the Skoda Octavia...

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...

1999 Subaru Impreza WRX (AWD) review

I would like to introduce our MY99 Subaru Impreza WRX. This car has been in my family for around 15 years. The car is completely standard, just as it left the factory back in 1998. The WRX followed on from the original Liberty/Legacy RS as a four-door, turbocharged, all-wheel-drive performance sedan...
