What kind of vehicle is the 2023 Subaru Impreza? What does it compare to?

Either a small sedan or hatchback, the 2023 Impreza squares off against the Mazda 3, Toyota Corolla, and Volkswagen Jetta. 

Is the 2023 Subaru Impreza a good car?

It’s a solid, if not exactly thrilling, choice. We set its TCC Rating at 6.2 out of 10 thanks to great crash-test scores, standard all-wheel drive, and decent day-to-day utility. It’s a highly rational choice almost devoid of emotion. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

What’s new for the 2023 Subaru Impreza?

The Impreza rolls into 2023 with no notable changes.

Offered in two body styles, the 2023 Subaru Impreza is a compact car with close ties to the automaker’s far more popular quasi-SUV, the Crosstrek. Take an Impreza hatch, tack on some fender flares and a lift kit, and you have the Crosstrek. Perform the opposite procedure and, well, you have the Impreza. 

The Impreza offers better fuel economy and sleeker styling, though its interior offers few thrills. 

That cabin design is a harbinger of things to come thanks to the 152-hp flat-4. It’s not slow, but it’s not exciting. The standard 5-speed manual is no joy, though its anachronistic nature offers some limited appeal. The more popular continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) delivers far better fuel economy on paper—think 32 mpg in base sedan form—and reasonable day-to-day drivability. 

No Impreza thrills on a winding road, but these cars have balance and confidence. They also come with standard all-wheel drive to make them good choices for winter or rough road use. 

Interior space is a virtue, however. Front-seat riders will find comfy thrones and great outward vision. The hatchback is especially practical. 

On the safety front, the Impreza should be proud of its report card full of top ratings from the NHTSA and the IIHS. Only CVT versions have automatic emergency braking, though. 

How much does the 2023 Subaru Impreza cost?

This year, the 2023 Subaru Impreza begins at $20,815 as a sedan, or $500 more as a hatchback. That money buys a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, cruise control, and power features. 

Better yet is the Premium trim at $24,215. In addition to a CVT, it includes alloy wheels, more sound deadening, and nicer trim. 

Where is the 2023 Subaru Impreza made?

In Japan.
