2022 Subaru Impreza sedan and hatchback
CR says the 2022 Subaru Impreza “beats out of the park with the current Impreza sedan and hatchback, now one of the top-rated cars in the compact class. The Impreza amazes us most with its quiet cabin, space and easy-to-use controls, and the ride comfort puts some luxury cars to shame.”
Consumer Reports ranked the 2022 Subaru Impreza as number one out of 12 compact cars.
What is the price of the Subaru Impreza 2022?
Subaru continued to maintain the same prices for the 2022 model year, with the exception of a small increase in designation and delivery costs. The 2022 Impreza comes in base sedan ($19,755), base hatchback ($20,255), Premium sedan ($23,155), Premium hatchback ($23,655), Sport sedan ($24,555), Sport hatchback ($23,955) and Limited hatchback ($27,355). Destination and delivery ($960) are included in the above prices.
What is the fuel consumption of the 2022 Subaru Impreza?
Consumer Reports says they achieved a total of 30 mpg and 21/41 city/highway mpg with the sedan body style, “commendable given the standard four-wheel drive.” The 2022 Impreza is also offered in a sporty hatchback body style.
Can you find a 2022 Impreza?
Buyers looking for a 2022 Subaru Impreza will struggle to find a new model. The shortage of microchips and supply chain problems have limited production and Subaru has stopped production of the current model before 2022.
What should customers do if they want a new Impreza compact sedan or hatchback? Now it is best to wait for the 2023 Impreza sedan and hatchback. If you’re willing to wait, the Subaru Impreza will get a completely new design for the 2023 model year. It will come with new safety technology, new exterior styling, possibly a more fuel-efficient 1.5-liter turbo engine and new cabin upgrades.
Consumer Reports says the 2022 Subaru Impreza is a top choice for compact car buyers because of its space and interior comfort. The next-generation 2023 Subaru Impreza should be slightly larger and add value to compact car buyers. Stay tuned.
