We’ve already seen the 2015 Subaru Impreza and its remodeled exterior that includes a new front bumper, grille and headlights, revised side-view mirrors, and a new spoiler on four-door models. The refresh wasn’t overwhelming, but it was enough to keep it fresh for a few more years. Also included is an improved infotainment system, a standard rearview camera, better cabin insulation, improved fuel economy, and a new, 6.2-inch multi-function touchscreen.
With improvements and inflation come price increases, so it is no surprise to learn that the 2015 Impreza is more expensive than the 2014 model. However, the price increase is rather small considering the changes that the model underwent. The base Impreza 2.0i sedan and five-door with a five-speed manual start at $18,195 and $18,395, respectively, which is just a $300 bump over their 2014 MSRPs.
If you’re looking for models with a little more upscale fell to them, you can go for the Premium or Limited models, which start at $20,995 and $22,295, respectively, in their sedan guise. As a five-door hatch, the Premium and Limited models start at $21,995 and $24,090, respectively.
Under its hood, the 2015 Impreza retains the same 2.0-liter, boxer-four engine that produces 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. Helping improve fuel economy heading into 2015 are low-rolling-resistance tires and a revised electric power-steering system. With the continuously variable transmission in place, the Impreza gets 28 mpg city, 37 mpg highway and 31 mpg combined, which is outstanding for an all-wheel-drive sedan. With the manual transmission, these number fall to 25 mpg city, 34 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.
The 2015 Impreza will start arriving at dealers in November 2014.
