2018 Subaru Impreza Walk Around

The 2017 redesign made the Impreza slightly longer, wider and lower, as well as sleeker and more sculpted. It remains straightforward, sensible and functional. The hexagonal grille is familiar.

The headlamps sweep back, while character lines accent the shapely, flowing sides. Countering the snub-nosed profile of some rivals, the front overhang is relatively long.


Despite the improvements to the interior for 2017, making the cabin less basic and more expressive, the upholstery and trim remain short on style and only average in quality. The dashboard, however, has soft-touch surfaces, and two-tone upholstery in upper trim levels can make the interior seem lighter. A widened console makes it feel more spacious.

Audio and climate controls are simple and intuitive. Instrument clusters and the touchscreen incorporate beveled-edge, rectangular shapes. A hooded auxiliary display sits at the dashboard center, just below the windshield base. Subaru’s basic infotainment system is impressive. The display for the standard rearview camera provides steering lines.

The cabin is quiet and the front seats comfortable, with height adjustment on most models. Rear headroom is adequate. Entry and exit to the rear is easy, through door openings that were widened for 2017. Thin pillars help make outward visibility excellent.

Five-door hatchbacks offer greater versatility and considerably more space, with 20.8 cubic feet of cargo volume (55.3 cubic feet with back seats folded). Sedan trunks are smaller than average, totaling only 12.3 cubic feet.
