Take an Adventure in the New 2021 Subaru Impreza

In a market teeming with compact cars, two things help the Subaru Impreza stand out. Unlike most vehicles in its class, the Impreza is offered in two body styles: a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback. The Impreza also comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which gives it an all-weather advantage over compact cars that go the traditional front-wheel-drivetrain route. Charlottesville shoppers can choose from the Impreza's base-level, Premium, Sport, and Limited models.

What's New for 2021?

The model year immediately preceding the 2021 model received a significant boost. Most notable of the enhancements is the extension of the EyeSight suite of driver-assistance technologies to all trim levels but the base model. Also, Subaru revised the headlights, grille, and front bumper on the hatchback variant, and the vehicle received more standard features on select trims. Understandably, Ruckersville shoppers can expect to meet an Impreza that's virtually untouched for 2021.


A 152-horsepower 2.0-liter flat-four engine powers the Impreza. Pinned to the engine is a five-speed manual transmission, which should be delightful to Earlysville drivers who want complete control of their gears. If more convenience is a priority, however, go with any trim level above the base one for a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Also, the CVT produces the best fuel economy numbers on the Impreza, at 28/36 mpg. The all-wheel drivetrain keeps tires firmly planted on the surface, including when it's compromised by water or ice.


A five-seater, the Subaru Impreza is upgraded with front-seat heating at the Premium trim level, stands out with sports seats and red contrast stitching on the Sport, and gets unique leather upholstery at the Limited trim level. For more cargo space, go with the hatchback body style, which provides 20.8 cubic feet of standard volume that can be maximized to 55.3 cubic feet when you fold down the rear seats. By comparison, the sedan provides 12.3 cubic feet, and the rear seats can't be folded down.

Comfort and Convenience

The Impreza has Subaru's Starlink multimedia system for its infotainment functions. Headed by a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Starlink brings together four speakers, an AM/FM radio tuner, and Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming. You'll also get a USB port for playing media from mobile devices and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.

If you go with the Premium model near Crozet, Subaru adds proximity keyless entry with push-button start for easier access and a more convenient engine. You will enjoy a second USB port, a Wi-Fi hot spot for 4G LTE Internet access, and a trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio. The Sport trim gains a navigation system with an eight-inch touchscreen (instead of the 6.5-inch), HD Radio for digital tuning, and a pair of rear USB ports to charge mobile devices. Unique to the Limited is an automatic climate control system.


At the base level, the Impreza has a rearview camera for driver assistance, and seven airbags protect in the event of a crash. You'd need to go with at least the Premium for the previously mentioned EyeSight suite, which combines pre-collision braking and throttle management, lane departure warning, sway warning, and lane-keep assist.

The Sport trim stands out with its active torque vectoring technology to maximize cornering and handling ability, helping avoid accidents. For maximum driver assistance, go with the Limited, on which Subaru adds automatic high beams, reverse automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change assist.
