A comfortable ride, responsive handling, good visibility, simple controls, and a relatively spacious rear seat all combine to make the Impreza easy to live with. The hatchback's cargo versatility gives it an edge in practicality over the sedan version. Sport models come with snazzy wheels and a bit more equipment than more basic Imprezas.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"The handling seems to be very good. Takes corners quickly and with no fuss. It steers very easily. The engine is in dire need of more power. You can tell when you carry more than one person how it affects the performance. I know it's here to stay, but the CVT is awful, it keeps hesitating when taking off most of the times no matter how you depress the accelerator. The shifter paddles in this car are very helpful when you want to downshift, so you don't have to step on the accelerator to make the transmission to go to a higher ratio. Although I like the flat-4 configuration, the engine's exhaust sound is not very appealing"

Ernesto R., FL (2016 Subaru Impreza)

"Acceleration? What is that? Handling of the Premium trim is, in a word, LOUSY. It's bouncy, under-damped, and has excessive body roll. Combined with the skinny 16" wheel/tire combo and all season rubber bands, I could not call this car "confidence inspiring" to drive. In fact, it's hard to believe that the WRX version is even the same platform. This thing wallows like a small whale. Considering the relatively high price and barely higher fuel economy than our 2016 Legacy, it's a good thing this model has been discontinued and it's replacement improved in every way."

Anonymous, TX (2016 Subaru Impreza)

"Manual transmission is difficult to use smoothly due to poor tuning and matching of gear ratios to wheel speeds. I feel that Subaru has not focused on creating a first rate manual transmission experience, likely focusing instead on their automatic transmissions. Handling is good. Acceleration is fine, perfectly suitable for the type of car that this is. The car drives well even when heavily loaded and can do much more than one might expect. I drove 9,000 miles last summer on a coast to coast trip with a very heavily laden Impreza and had no difficulties."

"Engine is smaller than the higher line of Subarus, therefore accelaration is slower. I am told my standard shift Subaru still has bit more acceleration than automatic transmission."

Anonymous, NJ (2016 Subaru Impreza)

"The CVT edition performs well with the caviat that you need to pay more attention to the speedometer, as the car itself, for good or ill, provides no real audio or handling cues about relative speed like a traditional automatic or manual. The CVT drive system itself performs flawlessly but you may wish to consider a package for computer maintenance since the entire system seems chip controlled."

Anonymous, CO (2016 Subaru Impreza)

"Versus the 2013, the CVT transmission has been vastly improved. It provides substantially faster and smoother acceleration on the 2016 even though the 2013 Impreza Sport Premium engines are identical. Unfortunately, they've over-tuned the suspension for comfort and the 2016 does not have the rock solid and firm suspension so the driving feel isn't as rewarding. The rear is so softened that has to bounce twice on a moderate bump before returning to stable/solid. The 2013 needed only one."

MICHAEL D., MA (2016 Subaru Impreza)

"Uneven acceleration or just not as smooth and consistant as my VW golf. I do like the variable cruise control."

MERRITT M., CA (2016 Subaru Impreza)

"The CVT definitely is tuned for efficiency. It's acceleration is only so-so given the available power and torque. The handling is competent but not engaging. The ride with the 16in wheels (as on the Premium trim) is much better than with the 17in wheels (as on the Limited trim, which I now have). It is much stiffer when even going slowly over the dip where my driveway intersects the street. It also tends to dive more than the 2003 Protege5 does when coming to a complete stop. Overall, it's OK, b"

Austin M., NC (2016 Subaru Impreza)

"The 2.0 liter flat four is not a thing of beauty, and it is rather loud when cold. Chain driven camshafts have make the engine much louder than the older Subarus with timing belts. Good for engine longevity--bad for noise. The lackluster CVT adds even more caterwauling from the engine and saps performance as well. The seats are undersized for the average American male--in many ways this car reminds me of a typical 90's Japanese compact. Dimensions are tight all around, it's fairly loud and uncomfortable on long trips. I leased it for my wife who genuinely HATES it and is looking forward to the replacement soon. The new model is substantially better in every way."

"Purchase price was very good but after the right hand break cable froze last January , the dealer charged 1100$ to change both sides rear brakes, claiming we drove with handbrake on (so as not to have work done under warranty). CAA automobile expert contradicts diagnostic because using handbrake would have done same damage on each side, while frozen cable damaged right side. And now rear brakes are finished and have to be changed again after 5000 km or so. Never paid that much for brakes even on cars kept for 10 years and it’s all due to dealer’s incompetence or dishonesty in my opinion."
