Only subtle changes have been made to the 2020 Subaru Impreza, which is a good thing in our opinion.

Mechanical - Subaru Impreza specs in Boulder

Subaru is the only manufacturer to offer a compact sedan that is all-wheel drive. Better yet, it's standard. That means that every Impreza available at your local Subaru dealership near Eldorado Springs Lafayette Louisville Jamestown will be an all-wheel-drive vehicle. The previous model year won a lot of awards along the lines best AWD sedan, and 2020 should be no exception. Note that the vehicle will also be available as a four-door hatchback, which is preferable for those eyeing more cargo capacity.

Powertrain - Subaru Impreza specs in Boulder CO

The previous model year, the Impreza had but a single powertrain: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. That flat-four was mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission standard in some cases and optional in others, such as the 2.0i and Sport models. The alternative to the CVT was a five-speed manual transmission. With the CVT, this powertrain makes 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. 2020 Subaru Impreza review readers will be happy to know that this powertrain will be returning. We can presume some refinements, but no details were available at the time of this writing. Our Boulder review researchers also learned that Subaru will be adding a 1.6-liter flat-four to the mix, but performance details were scarce, and it is unclear if this engine will even be offered in the U.S.

Safety - 2020 Subaru Impreza dealer

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this 2020 Subaru Impreza review is that Subaru is introducing EyeSight Touring Assist as standard equipment across the entire lineup! The ETA package is designed to avoid accidents as well as mitigate driver fatigue through assistance with steering, braking and accelerating. The system identifies lane markings and other vehicles. You can expect cornering lights, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alerts and a forward-collision detection system that can automatically brake in emergencies. It also boasts traffic-adaptive cruise control and a front-view camera in addition to the rearview that is standard on all Impreza models and required by law. In addition, the kit has adaptive headlamps and driver seating memory functions, which is a nice touch.
