This is the first use of Subaru's new global platform, which will eventually underpin all its vehicles.
In comparison to the outgoing model, the new Impreza is 1.6 inches longer, 1.5 inches wider and 0.4 inches lower.
Both hatchback and sedan variants are available.
Both cars feature the same engine -- a 152-horsepower, flat-four engine mated to either a manual or continuously variable transmission.
All-wheel drive is standard, because it's standard on literally every Subaru model.
Subaru's Eyesight system returns, bringing with it adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist.
A new Sport trim includes special suspension tuning, unique wheels and the torque-vectoring system found on Subaru's more performance-oriented models. Naturally, there are a few visual enhancements, as well.
All Impreza models come with a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system that packs both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.
Higher trims bring a leather interior, a larger infotainment display, premium audio and much, much more.
