Loading Comparison...


Among compacts, the all-wheel-drive Subaru Impreza is unbeatable for snow and foul weather. Impreza comes in hatchback and sedan versions (plus WRX and Crosstrek versions covered separately). All are able to handle primitive roads, come standard with Subaru’s proven all-wheel drive, and get good fuel economy.

The Impreza got a fresh face for the 2015 model year, slimmer pillars for visibility, upgraded infotainment, new safety features, and better fuel economy. For 2016, Impreza carries over with no substantial changes.

The 2016 Subaru Impreza is EPA-rated at 28/37 City/Highway miles per gallon with the CVT, or 3 mpg less with the manual, all excellent for all-wheel drive.

The 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine sends 148 horsepower and 145 foot-pounds of torque to all four wheels. A lovely five-speed manual gearbox is standard, while upper models get Subaru’s Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), which yields better fuel mileage but is sluggish when power is needed quickly.

The 2016 Impreza leads its class in safety. A rearview camera comes standard, while an optional EyeSight system uses cameras and sensors for adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and pre-collision braking. The IIHS rates the system Superior and gives Impreza a mark of Top Safety Pick Plus, with a top score in the tough new small-overlap frontal test (telephone pole). The NHTSA gives the Impreza five stars overall.


The 2016 Subaru Impreza comes in base, Premium, Limited and Sport Limited models, as a sedan or five-door hatchback, with manual gearbox or CVT. A new model for 2016 is the 2.0i Sport Premium five-door, with rocker spoilers, 17-inch alloys, roof rails and unique seat fabric.


The Impreza doesn’t have the forward shape of the Ford Focus or the sporty clean lines of the Mazda3, but the proportions of the five-door work well. We like the sporty and cohesive lines of the five-door more than the taller sedan, which looks homely even with a trunk lip spoiler.

The hawkeye headlamps, trapezoidal grille and front bumper look fresh but mature in the sense that they make the Impreza look like the larger Legacy, as intended. Pre-2015 models looked dowdy and awkward. Now the Impreza looks distinctive.

The character lines on the sides of the car are conservative, unlike the contours and creases common in over-achieving small cars nowadays. Big wheel arches make the car look lower, but also make even the 17-inch wheels look too small. You can’t see the undertray, but you’ll like knowing it’s there, as it improves aerodynamics which raises fuel mileage.


Not surprisingly, knowing Subaru’s no-nonsense simplicity and utility, the cabin is well designed. There’s an abundance of rear legroom, and the rear seats easily fold flat for cargo. There’s an abundance of cubbyholes and cupholders, bins and trays, also two 12-volt outlets.

The gauge layout is basic, with a cowl over the speedo and tach, and a small display screen between them. There’s a wider display in the center of the dash, with digital info that’s easy to read.

The cabin can be a bit loud on rough pavement, even with thicker window glass from 2015.

Driving Impressions

It might not be fair to compare the Impreza to similar five-door compacts because it’s all-wheel drive, but still, we have to say the Impreza isn’t as much fun to drive as the Ford Focus or Mazda 3. The Impreza is balanced (its boxer engine helps a lot), responsive and free of drama, but it lacks that edgy and athletic feel. Its 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque is adequate but underwhelming.

The horizontally opposed engine carries its weight low, and is mounted in the Impreza frame as low and far back as possible. This gives a low center of gravity, which enables stability in quick corners and esses. The feedback of electric power steering system is very good, while the brakes are progressive and reassuring.

We like the 5-speed manual transmission. The CVT, even with paddle shifters and programmed steps, makes the engine feel sluggish at times. The CVT still allows quick acceleration, but it’s slow to rev when power is quickly needed.

The all-wheel-drive system is different with the CVT. The manual cars get a basic viscous coupling in the center differential, while the CVT is uses an electronically controlled hydraulic clutch to apply torque front to rear. Subaru has for many years used different all-wheel-drive systems with different transmissions. Subaru dominated the World Rally Championship with its all-wheel-drive expertise.


It’s hard to find a car that offers more for less money. The utility and versatility of the Impreza fits into many lifestyles.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
