What's New in the 2020 Subaru Impreza?

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

Which Impreza is the Best?

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

How Much Does a 2020 Subaru Impreza Cost?

The 2020 Subaru Impreza comes in two body styles -- a 4-door sedan and a 5-door hatchback -- and four trims: 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, 2.0i Sport and 2.0i Limited. Pricing below includes the $900 destination fee.

The Impreza 2.0i ($19,595 sedan; $20,095 5-door) includes a 5-speed manual transmission, 16-in wheels with plastic covers, steering-wheel-mounted controls for cruise control, audio and Bluetooth, STARLINK 6.5-in touchscreen media with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 60/40 split folding rear seat, a rearview monitor, air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, incline-start assist, remote keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column and an eco-fuel economy gauge. The 5-door adds a rear wiper/washer. Options for this trim are limited to the CVT automatic that brings EyeSight (adaptive cruise control, collision-avoidance and automatic braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist), rear-door reminder, power trunk release (sedan), 4.2-in color LCD display, tire pressure monitor and a few dealer-installed add-ons, including a very affordable $500 Rockford Fosgate speaker and amp upgrade.

The Impreza 2.0i Premium ($22,995 sedan; $23,495 5-door) adds a CVT automatic transmission with a 7-speed manual shift mode, improved suspension dampers, 16-in alloy wheels, upgraded STARLINK audio with satellite radio and two additional speakers (for a total of six), the All-Weather Package (heated seats, heated side mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer), welcome lighting, a sound insulation windshield and illuminated power window switches on all doors. The 5-door models gain roof rails and a rear cargo cover. Options for the Premium trim include a power moonroof, a blind spot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, reverse automatic braking, a power driver's seat and keyless access with push-button start and PIN code access.

The Impreza 2.0i Sport ($24,395 sedan; $23,795 5-door) brings back the 5-speed manual transmission (5-door only) and adds Si Drive, a sport-tuned suspension, active grille shutters, 18-in alloy wheels, active torque vectoring, aluminum pedals, red stitching on the dash, seats, steering wheel and shifter, simulated carbon fiber trim, an 8-in STARLINK media system with a single-CD player, SiriusXM, a rear spoiler and exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals. Options are the same as for the Premium trim, with one exception being the Harman Kardon audio upgrade.

The Impreza 2.0i Limited ($26,695 sedan; $27,195 5-door) brings the CVT automatic, 17-in alloy wheels, leather seating, automatic climate control, a 6-way power driver's seat, automatic high beams, steering-responsive LED headlights, blind spot detection with lane-change assist and rear cross-traffic detection, Si Drive, fog lights, a color LCD monitor, keyless access with push-button start and a rear-seat armrest with cup holders. Options include a power sunroof, voice-activated navigation and a 432-watt 8-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

2020 Subaru Impreza vs the competition

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.
