Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 27 - 33 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Relatively cheap to buy when you consider the performance on offer and the standards of engineering. However insurance, tyres and fuel cost are comparatively higher.

Impreza is quite a polluting model. With an average of 209 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are a touch high for a medium-sized estate. It's worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is not very frugal, averaging 32 mpg.

A model of reliability; likely to be long-lived if correctly serviced and not abused.
