The Impreza impresses us most with its roominess, user-friendliness, and ride comfort that puts some luxury cars to shame. Practicality, safety and comfort all come to play with the new Impreza. The cabin is roomy, the car's solid structure delivers optimal ride and handling, and Subaru's EyeSight suite of advanced safety features is widely available—but we think it should be standard on all trims.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
