I’m Driving In Style

by Jordyn Walker from Bridport, VT | May 26, 2020

This car is absolutely amazing. I live in Addison County and so this is by far the best AWD car I’ve ever owned. Not to mention it’s the sports version so I’m riding in style.

Love my Subaru

This is my 2nd Impreza in a row. Love this car, handles excellent, super fun to cruise in. The Sport suspension handles excellent and the sunroof is superb added bonus for CA evenings

Best car for the money

This car is perfect for me. I live in area that gets hard to get around in the winter, but I didn't want to get a large SUV or truck. The Impreza is a great size and AWD which is just what I am looking for.

2017 Subaru Impreza Overview


The 2017 Subaru Impreza is a compact car that comes as a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback. It competes with the Ford Focus, Mazda3, and Hyundai Elantra. This year, it has been redesigned and manufactured in the United States.

Four trims are available: the 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, 2.0i Sport, and 2.0i Limited.

The fifth-generation Impreza is built on the new Subaru Global Platform, which focuses on improved handling, stability, and comfort. The Impreza has a mixture of organic and geometric forms that follow more moderate proportions than its predecessor. The front-end features triangle-shaped headlights, a hexagonal grille, and a sculpted lower fascia. Deep channeled grooves stretch along the sides and blend with the sculpted front and rear fenders. At the rear, a new geometric taillight design creates a hexagonal frame around the license plate, echoing the front grille. Power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators and 16-inch alloy wheels come standard. LED headlights, front fog lights, a power moonroof, and larger 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels are available as well.

Under the hood, the Impreza is powered by a standard 152-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with direct injection mated to a 5-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission and all-wheel drive (AWD). Fuel economy for the Impreza sedan is an EPA-estimated 28/38 mpg city/highway. It slightly lowers to a 28/37 mpg rating for the Impreza 5-door version.

Inside, the Impreza has a quieter cabin with cloth seating and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The Impreza hatchback has 55.3 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seat folded down. The center stack features a standard STARLINK multimedia system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded with a larger 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, and a Harmon Kardon or a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system. Standard features include air conditioning, cruise control, and power windows/locks. Leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, remote keyless entry, and push-button start are also available.

Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. The available EyeSight Driver Assist Technology package includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and a pre-collision system with automatic braking. Other available features include a blindspot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, and reverse automatic braking.
