While the model year jump may not signify much, the 2017 Subaru Impreza is actually an all-new generation – the fifth in the family.
Including destination and delivery, the base 2017 Impreza starts from $19, 215 and that’s just $100 more than a 2016 model year – though the owner now gets a completely changed car, produced locally in the US and with a new architecture that promises even more driving engagement, a more upscale interior and better occupant protection. The entry-level 2.0i 5MT has a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder direct-injected boxer engine, packing 152 hp – linked to a five-speed manual transmission. It also comes with a plethora of standard amenities: auto up/down power windows up front, 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment, tilt and telescoping steering column, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
If you want the CVT you’ll need to shell another $1,000 and going for the 2.0i Premium will take the price to $22,015 while adding Starlink safety features, windshield wiper de-icer, heated exterior mirrors and front seats, automatic headlights and roof rails if you select the hatchback. The 2.0i Sport with 5MT or CVT will cost $22,815 or $23,615 for the 4-door sedan, $23,315 or $24,115 for the 5-door hatchback and includes an 8.0-inch infotainment system, push-button start, keyless access, aluminum pedals, and leather on the steering wheel and shift handle. The top of the line 2.0i Limited CVT will cost either $24,915 or $25,415.
