Subaru Australia has announced details of the latest (sixth generation) version of its ever-
popular Impreza small hatchback.

Three variants are available: 2.0L, 2.0R and 2.0S priced at $31,490, $34,990 and $37,990

The all-new Subaru Impreza boasts a proven direct injection 2.0-litre Boxer engine, with an
eight-speed Lineartronic transmission and paddle shift manual mode.

Synonymous with Subaru, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is standard for all Subaru
Impreza model variants. It’s mounted to a refined Subaru Global Platform which delivers a
further ten per cent increase in torsional rigidity which bolsters cabin strength and delivers
a quieter, more comfortable ride.

MY24 Impreza retains the Subaru SI-Drive system that enhances the vehicle’s driving
performance by refining throttle and acceleration response. SI-Drive offers two distinct
modes: Intelligent (I) mode and Sport (S) mode.

Inside the all-new Subaru Impreza, the redesigned cabin comes with a number of updated
entertainment features and added conveniences.

The 11.6-inch portrait-oriented infotainment touchscreen allows for intuitive control of
various multimedia functions. There’s are also wireless Qi smartphone charging, wireless
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and USB-A and USB-C ports both in the
front console and in rear.

Styling of the MY24 Impreza brings a more angular shape than the outgoing model for a
more aggressive look.

The LED headlights are narrower and wrap around to the side and are dusk-sensing. In
the 2.0R and 2.0S variants they are steering responsive for improved visibility when
cornering as well as high-beam assist.

The rear combination lamps (also LED) have a distinctive C-shaped three-dimensional
signature with a three-dimensional aspect.

Newly designed 17-inch alloy wheels are fitted to Impreza 2.0L, whilst 2.0R and 2.0S
feature 18-inch alloy wheels also with a refreshed designed.

There are now seven exterior colour options with Oasis Blue being added to the previous
choices: Crystal Pearl White, Ice Silver Metallic, Magnetite Grey Metallic, Crystal Black
Silica and Sapphire Blue Pearl. In a nice touch all come standard rather than being costed

All MY24 Subaru Impreza variants feature a smart key and push-start ignition and power-
folding door mirrors.

The interior of the all-new Subaru Impreza has been completely redesigned with a range
of new high-tech features, soft touch materials and premium seating textiles available in
each variant.

Impreza 2.0R and 2.0S feature a panoramic 360-degree view monitor to help improve
visibility around the vehicle and prevention of accidents. A 3D birds-eye view is made
available on the 11.6-inch touchscreen via combining images from all four cameras around
the vehicle.

The 2.0L and 2.0R variants come with six-speaker system featuring 160mm full range
speakers in both the front and rear doors, as well as tweeters in the front instrument panel
exhibiting flat-frequency characteristics.

The 2.0S steps up to a premium Harmon Kardon 10-speaker audio system, a first
for any Subaru Impreza model.

A new design approach based on the structure of the human body has been adopted for
the all-new Subaru Impreza. By adopting a human-centred design approach, almost every
aspect of the interior has been crafted to elevate driver and passenger ergonomics and
ensure maximum comfort.

An upgraded seating mounting arrangement has been introduced between the chassis
and the seat to minimise seat movement and enhance the overall smoothness of the ride.

MY24 Impreza comes with nine airbags, compared to the previous generation’s seven and
now includes a far side airbag which focuses on protecting occupants on the non-collision

The latest generation Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist System adds an updated stereo
camera system with significantly improved image recognition as well as the ability to
recognise pedestrians and bicycles when the vehicle is entering an intersection at low

New to the Subaru Impreza range, all variants are equipped with Subaru’s leading-edge
Driver Monitoring System which carefully watches over the driver’s seat for signs of
drowsiness, lack of attention on the road or fatigue is detected. If any of these signs are
identified, a warning is displayed on the Multi-Information Display (MID) and infotainment

All Subaru Impreza variants feature Subaru’s Vision Assist. When combined with
progressive features of EyeSight this enables full perimeter preventative safety features.

Due to go on sale from December 2023, orders can now be placed either on-line at or through any Subaru dealership.
