2015 Subaru Impreza Gets Revised Styling, More Tech

Article file under

The latest Subaru Impreza range was all-new for 2012, so for the 2015 model year the all-wheel-drive compact has been given a mid-cycle update. Only the Subaru die-hards are likely to recognize the changes made to the exterior of the vehicles. They consist of revisions made to the headlights, grille and front bumper, as well as new side mirror caps. Unfortunately, they don’t do much to improve the look of the rather mundane sedan and hatch, especially when lined up against the latest Ford Focus, Mazda 3 and Volkswagen Golf.

 The story gets worse if you're looking for driver excitement. The sole engine for the entire range continues to be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer, rated at just 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired with a five-speed manual as standard with the more upmarket Premium and Limited trims getting a CVT as standard. As is the case with all Subarus except the BRZ, all-wheel drive is standard across the range. If you have your heart set on the Impreza's shape, we strongly suggest going straight for the WRX or WRX STI models.
