Subaru LED Headlamps
LED Headlamps

LED Steering Responsive Headlights with High Beam Assist actively track in the direction of a turn to enhance visibility. If you’re approaching oncoming traffic at night, auto high beams will sense the road ahead and automatically switch to low beam.

Technology

(Click for closer view and details)

The 2018 Subaru Impreza raises the bar in the compact segment, striking a chord with drivers who reject compromise at every turn. Armed with the legendary Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time All-Wheel Drive System, the Subaru Boxer engine and the Subaru Global Platform, the Impreza reinforces an enduring track record of great driving performance and safety.

Subaru Active Torque
Active Torque

Active Torque Vectoring can individually brake the inside front wheel to improve turn-in and reduce understeer for sharper handling during spirited driving.

Subaru All-Wheel Drive
All-Wheel Drive

With Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, you have the confidence for driving in wet and dry conditions, and on any terrain. Impreza is the only car in it's segment with SAWD for added safety and off-road capability.

Subaru Stability
Stability

While most engines stand vertically, our Subaru Boxer engine lays flat – delivering handling that no other engine can. Sitting horizontally in the engine bay, it moves like a boxer’s fists with a punch and counterpunch action. With perfect balance and a much lower centre of gravity, it creates less noise and vibration too.

Subaru Global Platform
Global Platform

This Impreza was the first Subaru vehicle to ride on the new Subaru Global Platform. This design sees dramatic increases to body rigidity through the use of more high-tensile materials. Other benefits of this advanced platform include reduced twisting forces on the frame and body through the suspension system. This, in turn, creates a smoother and more comfortable ride, highly responsive and precise steering, excellent straight-line stability, and low levels of noise and vibration.

Safety

(Click for closer view and details)

The combination of a world-class all-wheel drive system, striking agility, superior visibility and class-leading active safety systems such as EyeSight advanced driver assist system, Subaru Rear/Side Vehicle Detection System and ABS gives the Subaru Impreza excellent evasive capabilities. After all, the best way to stay safe in an accident situation is to avoid the accident in the first place.

Subaru EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control
EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control

EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control lets the system automatically adjust your speed to keep a set distance from the vehicle ahead. By constantly monitoring distance and speed, it adjusts the engine, transmission and brakes to maintain speed in line with the traffic flow.

EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking
EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking

If EyeSight senses an impending collision, a buzzer and a light on the dashboard warn you. If you don’t take evasive action, the system can automatically apply the brakes and reduce engine power – either preventing the collision entirely, or reducing the severity, depending on your speed. If you apply the brakes, but not hard enough, EyeSight applies more braking force to stop the vehicle.

EyeSight Brake

Subaru EyeSight Pre-Collision Throttle Management
EyeSight Pre-Collision Throttle Management

Should EyeSight detect an obstacle in front of you while you are parked, and you put the vehicle in drive instead of reverse, you’ll hear several short beeps, see a flashing indicator and the engine will reduce power to help you avoid a collision.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection features Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It monitors rear blind spots for danger, makes lane changes safer and can also warn you of a potential collision. For example, when your reverse into a street with passing traffic.

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection
Rear Vehicle Detection

In addition to our Reverse Camera, Reverse Automatic Braking will sense and alert you if it detects you are about to hit something behind. And now it will even apply the brakes in the event you don't.

Subaru Impact Design
Impact Design

This proprietary advanced frame design is able to absorb 40% more impact energy than on the previous-generation Impreza. It strengthens the passenger compartment by linking the roof to the side pillars and the floor. As a result, impact energy coming from all directions is dissipated and diverted away from the passenger cabin.

Subaru Impact Protection
Impact Protection

In the event of a head-on collision, the Subaru Boxer engine and transmission are designed to absorb impact, and then break away from the vehicle structure and drop below the passenger cabin, for added protection. A total of seven airbags standard gives you peace of mind.
