2024 Subaru Impreza Delivers Power, Handling, Agility, Comfort

Just road tested on the tortuous back roads of California’s Paso Robles wine country, the pre-production 2024 Subaru Impreza hatchback is a pleasant respite from SUV mania and the kind of value and driving that just feels right these days.

A three model selection of this aero emotive sculpted 5-door priced from $22,000 base to the $28,000 sporty RS, the Impreza scores for the small car scene, as average new car price in the US are tipping $50,000.

And Subaru obliterates any “you get what you pay for” bias against entry level models. The Impreza boasts stiffer body structure, beefed up chassis on the Subaru Global Platform delivering rally car alacrity and impressive straight line high speed stability.

Standard premium 11.6-inch infotainment touchscreen, Eye-Sight auto stop, and stylish, comfortable sport seating and interior help close the deal.

Signature Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, maximum traction Impreza handling unravels twisting and turning roadways.

The RS power boosted 2.5-liter 4-cyl Boxer, direct fuel injection 182 horsepower adds magic to Subaru surefootedness, giving this modest Impreza many of the same capabilities that have made the WRX a rally winner around the world.
