Release date, price and specs

The Subaru Impreza is due for a major refresh, and we’ll probably see it this year. Subaru typically updates its cars on a strict five-year schedule. However, the 2022 Impreza remained unchanged from the previous year. This hints that we can expect a complete redesign of the 2023 Subaru Impreza for this year, although we’re still awaiting a few key details.

Subaru didn’t provide an official release date for the 2023 Impreza, but we imagine it will closely align with that of the 2023 Subaru Legacy. We’ll likely see both of these all-wheel-drive cars in the fall.

Most likely, the all-new Impreza will continue to offer its regular line of trim levels, including the 2023 Impreza Base, Premium, Sport, and Limited. Buyers should still be able to choose between a sedan and a 2023 Impreza sedan when shopping. release of the new model.

How much does the 2023 Subaru Impreza cost?

We don’t have any official pricing details for the new model yet, but we can make an educated guess. The new WRX costs about $2,000 more per model after its major redesign, but it’s also significantly more powerful and technical than the Impreza. Because of that, we can estimate that a redesigned Impreza would cost about $1,500 more than last year’s model.

  • 2023 Impreza Base: $20,795 ($21,295 for sedan)
  • 2023 Impreza Premium: $24,195 ($24,695 for sedan)
  • 2023 Impreza Sport: $25,595 ($26,095 for the sedan)
  • 2023 Impreza Limited: $28,395 (hatchback only possible)

A fully equipped Impreza hatchback can easily cost $30,000 or more. We will update these details when Subaru releases official information.

2023 Subaru Impreza Specs, Changes, and Updates

What will the 2023 Impreza look like? Edmunds believes the 2023 model will follow in the footsteps of the 2022 Subaru WRX, which got a major redesign and platform change last year. Historically, the WRX, Impreza and Crossover have all shared a platform. Will the 2023 Impreza and Crosstrek jump on the bandwagon?

One thing we can be sure of is that the new Subaru Impreza will come standard with symmetrical all-wheel drive on every trim level – it would be a crime not to.

The 2023 Impreza will also likely retain its four-cylinder BOXER engine. It may see a power boost over the typical 152 horsepower (pretty please) and maybe this will be the year an all-new Impreza appears with a turbo engine.

Manuals are slowly disappearing, so there’s a chance the 2023 Impreza will lose its stick. But, if any brand is going to keep a standard manual, it’s Subaru, so I’ll keep the faith.

2023 Subaru Impreza Interior Features

We’ll likely see an improvement in cabin quality inside the 2023 Impreza if it receives the full redesign we’re planning. Supply chain issues resulting in a shortage of certain materials may delay the arrival of certain features. However, we expect the new model to offer most of the cabin features and interior accessories of the 2022 model.

Base Impreza models are sparsely decorated, but overall comfortable. Subarus has a bad reputation for being boring, but the brand knows how to take care of a driver. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all models. A 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes standard on base and premium models, rising to an 8.0-inch screen on higher trims.

We expect the 2023 Impreza sedan and sedan to offer a similar list of features.

2023 Subaru Impreza vs Competitors

The 2023 Impreza compact car will compete with a number of other small sedans and hatchbacks. Some of its biggest rivals are the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Mazda3 and Kia Forte.

The Impreza has always stood out as one of the most affordable cars in its class and the only car that offers all-wheel drive as standard on every model. With seven configurations, additional package options and a well-equipped trim for less than $25,000, the 2023 Impreza should remain a tough contender.
