The EyeSight suite of driver assists is made standard on all models with the continuously variable transmission (CVT). A Rear Seat Reminder that reminds the driver to check the rear seat before leaving the vehicle is available across the line, while automatic power locks with a collision-detection unlock feature are now standard. The 2020 Impreza gets a mild front-end makeover, while the Sport and Limited trims tout new wheel designs and Si Drive. New standard equipment for the Limited includes blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert. See the 2020 Subaru Impreza models for sale near you
We'd be hard-pressed to argue against any of the Impreza models, but if we had to pick one, it would be the 2.0i Sport. This model comes well equipped and can include either a manual or automatic transmission. However, if you want features such as automatic climate control, leather seating and navigation, the Limited is your best bet. Find a Subaru Impreza for sale

2020 Mazda3 -- The Mazda3 has similar proportions but a slightly smaller rear seat. Its interior is also attractive, but its 8-in display screen doesn't offer touch-screen functionality. However, the Mazda3 can be equipped with AWD, and it has better acceleration and handling abilities.
2020 Honda Civic -- Like the Mazda3, the Civic can be either a simple car or an enthusiast's dream. The Civic lineup offers more powerful engine options than the Impreza's, but no AWD. Along with the Civic sedan and hatchback, there's also a coupe model.
2020 Mini Cooper Countryman -- The Countryman can be ordered with AWD, and its turbocharged engine makes it much more fun to drive. It also offers more upscale options and features but costs significantly more when so equipped.
Used Subaru WRX -- A 2012-2016 Subaru WRX will give you much of the same interior space and reliability as the Impreza but with a lot more power under the hood. However, you'll have to sacrifice the Impreza's EyeSight option and the more advanced media setup.
