Serving Charlottesville, VA

Car shoppers in Charlottesville have plenty of great options to explore when visiting Umansky Subaru. The smaller Impreza is offered in both hatchback and sedan body styles and boasts brilliant capabilities and features. The Legacy is a midsize sedan that is equally impressive. However, with numerous differences between the 2023 Impreza and the 2023 Legacy, understanding their standout traits is essential to your shopping experience.


The 2023 Subaru Impreza draws 152 horsepower from a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine in its trim levels. All-wheel drive is standard. Depending on the trim selected, the Impreza is available with a five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. For the Legacy, the first three trims have a 182-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. The top two trims draw 260 horsepower from a turbocharged 2.5-liter engine. A CVT and all-wheel drive are standard across all Legacy trims.


The Impreza has a sporty, confident stance with strong angles down its hood and roof. The side fenders are gently molded. The nose is characterized by a tapered, black grille crossed by a chrome bar. This sits over a barbell-styled bumper with long, horizontal accent lines. The LED headlights are partially outlined for a dramatic touch. The Legacy has an extended, fluid profile with two accent lines trending across the sides. The black grille has a hexagon-like shape, horizontal bars, and a chrome accent piece. This piece extends outward to touch the large, slanted headlights. Sitting under the headlights, C-shaped air vents hold the round foglights.


These exciting options share a variety of safety and cabin features. At select or all trims, they both are offered with blind-spot monitoring, leather upholstery, rear auto braking, remote climate controls, voice controls for the infotainment system, keyless entry, a push-button starter, Wi-Fi access, remote engine start, USB ports, heated front seats, Starlink and more. The 2023 Legacy is also available with a wide-angle camera, a front-view camera, upgraded cabin materials, an auto-dimming rear mirror, a driver monitoring system, driver’s memory settings, and a few additional features.
