The 2022 Subaru Impreza is an impressive small automobile. It has a smooth, efficient, 152 horsepower, 2.0 liter, flat-4, direct-injection Subaru Boxer engine that produces 145 pound-feet of torque. The engine works in combination with a continuously variable automatic transmission or 5-speed manual transmission. The engine has two horizontally opposed pairs of cylinders sitting low within the engine bay. This gives the vehicle the advantage of a low center of gravity as well as good overall stability. Available as either a sedan or a hatchback, the Impreza's symmetrical all-wheel drive, a roomy, comfortable, quiet cabin and lots of innovative advanced driver safety features, and the excellent suite of safety and driver assistance features make it top-notch.

Two Great Choices

Choosing between the sedan or the hatchback can be difficult because both have great features. Both of them have Subaru's impressive all-wheel-drive system as standard equipment. This enables the Impreza to easily handle frequent heavy snowfall and other tricky road conditions. Plus, the cabin quality is impressive and that makes the 2022 Subaru Impreza's cabin, comfortable, supportive seats, and interior design miles ahead of the competition with its 6-way adjustable driver's seat and 4-way adjustable front passenger seat. And it also incorporates quality seating upholstery material.

The Hatchback Is Larger

Some buyers prefer the hatchback because it has a longer wheelbase and cargo space in the back of the rear seat of 21 cubic feet compared to the sedan's 12 cubic foot trunk. Fold down the back seats and the hatchback's storage space is 55 cubic feet. The hatchback also has a sweeping, tapered roofline, more cabin flexibility, an adventurous five-door body, and a wagon-like profile. Plus, the hatchback is available with the Limited trim which has power-adjustable seats, leather upholstery, contrast-color stitching on both the doors and the instrument panel, blind-spot monitors, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen.

Great Safety Scores

Both the Impreza sedan and hatchback get good safety scores. However, the IIHS named the Impreza a Top Safety Pick, and NHTSA gave it five stars overall on the crash-test scores by testing the Limited hatchback, with the CVT and the best headlights. Both the sedan and the hatchback come with STARLINK Safety and Security connected services, Advanced Automatic Collision Notification, as well as SOS Emergency Assistance where you push a button and get roadside help. Plus, All-Around Awareness Technologies.

Lots Of Great Infotainment And Connectivity Features

Both the sedan and the hatchback versions of the 2022 Subaru Impreza have a host of entertainment features. They include STARLINK Multimedia with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, Wireless Bluetooth hands-free smartphone operation, and access to apps for news, navigation, music, and podcasts, through the cloud-based STARLINK. Plus, they have both a built-in and a voice-activated navigation system.

A Unique Appearance

Another difference between the sedan and the hatchback is that even though they both come with smart, sophisticated styling, the 5-door hatchback has a sporty, practical style and the sedan has a very refined and classic look. Stop by Gengras Subaru to see them both.
