Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

There’s no way around it: the Impreza is expensive to buy. In fact, it’s priced more in line with the pricey Volkswagen Golf 1.5 TSI and sporty range-topping Skoda Octavia vRS. It’s worth pointing out that much cheaper versions of both of those rivals are still better than the Impreza.

Furthermore, the Impreza’s high CO2 output will deter any potential company car buyers and the car doesn’t compete strongly on finance deals, either. As noted before, the Impreza’s standard all-wheel drive means claimed fuel economy is not anything special compared with rivals.
