The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Impreza its highest rating of five stars in every crash test and five stars overall.

Competition

2021 Subaru Impreza vs the competition

2021 Mazda3 — The Mazda3 has similar proportions to the Impreza, but a slightly smaller rear seat. Its interior is also attractive, although its 8-in display screen doesn’t offer touch-screen functionality. However, the Mazda3 can be equipped with all-wheel drive. It also has superior acceleration and handling. 2021 Honda Civic — Like the Mazda3, the Civic can either be simple or an enthusiast’s dream. The Civic range offers more powerful engine options than the Impreza, but no all-wheel drive. 2021 Kia Forte — Comes as a front-drive sedan only, but looks smart and the approximately $19,000 starting price is attractive. 2021 Toyota Corolla — Not particularly compelling in any one area, but good as an overall package. Used Subaru WRX — A 2012 to 2016 Subaru WRX has much of the same interior space and reliability as the Impreza, but with a lot more power. It means going without the Impreza’s EyeSight features and the more advanced infotainment setup, though. Check out Subaru’s certified pre-owned (CPO) program.
