Overview

With a more refined chassis, increased standard equipment, a stiffer body structure, a quieter cabin, and better handling, the 2024 Subaru Impreza is the next development of the well-known brand. The Impreza is still powered by one of two flat-four engines, and all-wheel drive is standard on all Subaru vehicles except the BRZ sports car.  The Impreza sedan has been discontinued, and the firm has reduced the number of trim levels from four to three. All Imprezas are now cargo-friendly hatchbacks. An iconic model name, the 2024 Subaru Impreza RS, is back, and it has origins in the enthusiast community. The RS is expected to be the most expensive 2024 Impreza in addition to being the sportiest.

What’s New in the 2024 Impreza

For the 2024 model year, Subaru unveils the all-new sixth-generation Impreza, which includes new technology, a new powertrain choice, and the reintroduction of the late 1990s rally-inspired RS trim level. The base car’s 2.0-liter engine produces 180 horsepower, while the RS’s 2.5-liter flat-four produces 182 horsepowers 30 horsepower more. The RS also has sharper external trim. Subaru will no longer be providing a manual transmission with all 2024 Imprezas; instead, a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) will be standard. The sedan version of the new Impreza is no longer available; it is now only available as a five-door hatchback and only with a CVT.

The Price of Subaru 2024 Impreza

The starting price of the 2024 Subaru Impreza ranges from $24,115 to $28,975, contingent upon the chosen specification and optional features.

The base model goes for $24,115, the sports for $26,085, while the RS model sales at $28,975.

Performance and transmission of Subaru 2024 Impreza

The modest 2.0-liter flat-four naturally aspirated engine in the standard and Sport versions of the Impreza continues to produce 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The new RS variant is the only vehicle available with a larger 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine, which boosts output to 182 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque with an additional 30 horsepower and 33 pound-feet of torque. Although the RS’s larger boxer engine produces more power than the standard engine, we wish Subaru had added a turbocharger to it. In testing, the Impreza took 7.8 seconds to reach 60 mph, which is 1.2 seconds faster than the previous generation’s 2.0-liter model.

Mileage and Fuel Economy

Compared to the previous generation model, the 2024 Impreza has a larger gas tank, which is a good thing because it is less efficient. The EPA expects that the new Impreza will achieve 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway when compared to base hatchbacks; this is a decrease from the 2023 model’s 28 mpg and 36 mpg. For enjoyable daily driving, the 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine with 182 horsepower is standard on the Impreza RS. You can feel the agile, responsive handling of a sport-tuned suspension on every turn, and the enhanced brakes provide sure, controlled stopping power.

Interior Comfort, Space and Infotainment connectivity

The luxurious cabin, which features aluminum-alloy pedal covers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter grip with boot, and exclusive RS Cloth upholstery with red accents and contrast stitching, creates the ideal environment for cruising through canyons and commuting.

The whole model range comes equipped with 60/40 folding rear seats and dual-zone climate controls as standard. With its hard buttons for the infotainment display in place of touchscreen controls, the interior design of the vehicle appears to be a logical development from that of the previous model. In order to facilitate access to the roof and secure cargo in cars with roof rails, there’s also a clever plastic step located close to the back seats. When the back seats are folded down, the hatchback provides an enormous 56 cubic feet of cargo space.

Standard on Sport and RS editions of the 2024 Subaru Impreza is the manufacturer’s Starlink multimedia system. It has an 11.6-inch touchscreen display with controls for the HVAC, music system, and other car systems. It allows for wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Base models, meanwhile, come with a normal 7.0-inch screen. Subaru also provides its Safety and Security Connect Services, including SOS Emergency Assistance and Stolen Vehicle Recovery Service, along with conveniences like Remote Vehicle Locator, for Starlink-equipped cars. No matter what smartphone you own, you’re covered with the auxiliary input jack, USB-C port, and USB-A port that the new Impreza offers its occupants. A 10-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system is also an option, but it’s limited to the top-of-the-line RS model.

Safety and Driver Assistance Features

Besides the previously mentioned Safety and Security Connected Services, Subaru has made its EyeSight Driver Assist Technology standard for all three Impreza trim levels on cars with Starlink. Models with the optional blind-spot detection system, which comes with lane-keep assist and rear cross-traffic warning already installed all of which are standard on the new RS model also come with automatic emergency steering. Along with these additions, Subaru is also offering Valet Mode, Trip Log and Driving Journal, and Remote Vehicle Configuration for the 2024 Impreza.
