The redesigned 2017 Impreza compact has more available safety equipment and a roomier interior. Still available in both sedan and five-door hatchback body styles, the Impreza continues to feature standard all-wheel drive. The new platform, with its longer wheelbase and wider cabin, should improve stability and ride comfort while aiding noise suppression. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission or five-speed manual gearbox. High trim lines feature a "manual mode" with paddle shifters that allow the driver to override the transmission through seven pre-set ratios. Subaru's EyeSight suite of advanced safety gear is available.
