The 2024 Subaru Impreza is all-new this year. As the first year of the 6th generation Impreza, this hatchback has been completely redesigned from the ground up. The new spacious interior of this hatchback has more room than many standard sedans, giving you more room for both occupants and cargo. The Impreza has been a fan-favorite for Subaru since it was first launched in 1992; over 1.3 million sales of this model have been made since then. While it is a classic Subaru model, the 2024 model year has plenty of new enhancements to make it stand out from its competition.

A hatchback is the perfect car for those who want more room than a standard sedan without committing to the large size of an SUV. While SUVs serve their purpose, not everyone needs a vehicle that size. That's where the Impreza's unique design comes in. The hatchback is a perfect solution for these types of buyers. With the roof rack, legendary Subaru Symmetrical AWD, and roomy interior, you’ll be ready for anything the big adventure of life throws at you. For those looking to take advantage of this unique vehicle and are looking for a Subaru Impreza for sale, you can find it all here at Ruge's Subaru.

New Year, New Impreza

2024 marks the first year of the 6th generation Subaru Impreza. This generation is completely redesigned, aiming for a sportier look, newer tech, and more power. Symmetrical AWD is now standard on all trim packages, ensuring top-of-the-line handling in all conditions by this little gem of a hatchback. The 60/40 split back seat maximizes cargo space when carrying fewer occupants. As a hatchback design, the Impreza has a significantly roomier interior than similar-sized sedans. This gives the second-row passengers more headroom and legroom and more trunk space. Subaru does a magnificent job of making every aspect of this vehicle serve a functional purpose on their cars.

Another key feature of the 2024 Impreza is the improved power, especially with the RS trim package. We’ll talk more about the different trim packages later and what makes each unique. The base Impreza gets a 152 hp 2.0L BOXER engine, while the higher-end RS model gets an 182 hp 2.5L BOXER engine. These engines are powerful for the size of the Impreza but still get decent mileage, with the base model getting 27 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway, while the RS gets 26 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway.

This generation also sees some improved tech features, including an available 11.6-inch multimedia touchscreen which makes controlling all your media simple and quick. Connectivity has never been easier than with this Impreza. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are seamlessly integrated with the infotainment center to keep track of all your calls, texts, maps, and music on your phone. This Impreza is a do-it-all modern vehicle as well suited to your daily commute as it is to a weekend or week-long trip. Subaru knows how adventurous their drivers are, and they build their cars to a high standard to ensure they can keep up with the drivers.

The Impreza’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology

Subaru has been a fixture of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety safety pick for 15 consecutive years, making it a good choice for the safety-conscious car owner. Everyone cares about safety, especially those with a family. Subaru has always prided itself on producing some of the safest cars on the market, and the Impreza certainly achieves this. In fact, 94% of all Imprezas sold in the last 10 years are still on the road, which is more than most compact cars.

Also included on every Impreza is the EyeSight driver technology which uses cameras and other monitoring hardware and software to keep a close eye on the road and potential hazards. Collision avoidance and assisted steering are just a couple of the features included with EyeSight. Cruise control is improved and can be computer assisted for steering and braking to give you more peace of mind on short and long trips. SUBARU STARLINK is also included, which gives you more connectivity and better vehicle monitoring, even from a distance. Assuredly, the safety features of the brand-new Impreza will ensure that you always have an extra set of eyes looking out for you at all times.

Upgrade Your Impreza With Either the Sport or RS Trims

While the baseline Impreza is impressive enough, the Sport and RS trim packages add more features to make it more powerful and fun. The Sport has an improved suspension, more finely tuned for sporty handling. This suspension is noticeably stiffer and more responsive than the last generation of Impreza models. Bigger brakes and 18-inch alloy wheels also contribute to better handling and stopping.

The Subaru Intelligent Drive performance management allows you to customize the engine performance for a number of driving situations, giving you total control of your engine and AWD system. The keyless push button start gives you the freedom to start your car before stepping into it, which is perfect on those cold winter mornings; few things are better than getting into a warm car on a cold day. The 11.6-inch screen comes standard with the Sport trim package as well as additional safety features.

The RS really takes the Impreza to a whole new level, though. The BOXER engine is a 2.5L 182 hp machine, giving you a snappier acceleration and more overall power. It also comes with a Harman Kardon premium audio system, so you can pump those tunes and feel every note and drumbeat. The large black alloy wheels accent the RS-specific design features, making the Impreza RS a vehicle to behold. Even the pedals have been customized with a shiny, sporty design that looks and feels ready to take on a track. Overall, the Sport and RS trim offer a plethora of enhancements to take your travels to the next level.
