Subaru Impreza 2017 sedan
Trim Shown: Sedan Limited
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 new Impreza has a very comfortable ride, agile and secure handling, and the cabin is considerably quieter. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission that mimics a conventional automatic and is not overly intrusive. We got 30 mpg overall with our sedan, commendable given the standard all-wheel drive. The infotainment screen is easy to use, and the rear seat is roomy for the a compact car. We recommend buying Subaru's optional EyeSight suite of advanced safety gear, which includes forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking.
