Subaru’s Impreza compact sedan and hatchback return for 2023 largely unchanged — except for their prices, which all increase by $525. The base 2023 Impreza sedan with a five-speed manual transmission starts at $20,815 and a base manual hatchback at$21,315 (all prices include destination fees). A modest $25 of those price increases can be attributed to an increase in the destination fee for 2023, up to $1,020 from $995.

The 2023 Impreza is available in either sedan or hatchback body styles. The sedan is available in Base, Premium and Sport trims, while the hatchback adds a Limited trim to the top of the range.

All models have standard all-wheel drive and are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 152 horsepower and 145 pounds-feet of torque. Buyers can spend $1,300 to switch out the manual transmission for a continuously variable automatic ($1,100 on the Sport hatchback), which on the Premium and higher trims includes a seven-speed “manual” mode that simulates a seven-speed automatic transmission. Imprezas with the CVT also come with the Subaru EyeSight suite of advanced driver assistance systems. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all 2023 Imprezas.

Buyers can add a power moonroof to the Premium, Sport and Limited. On the Premium, it costs $1,970 and also adds blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, keyless access with push-button start, and a power driver’s seat. On the Sport, the package costs $2,470 and adds blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and a power driver’s seat, too, but also adds a premium Harmon Kardon stereo. The Limited’s package costs $2,350 and includes the Harmon Kardon stereo as well as built-in navigation.
