Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

Inside, the Impreza is robust and cleanly designed rather than exciting.

It all feels decently put together, but the interior doesn’t have the polished feel you’d find in the Volskwagen Golf and Skoda Octavia. It’s simple to find a suitable driving position, though, with a six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat and a steering wheel that adjusts for reach as well as height.

The 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system is helpfully positioned close to the driver, making it easy to operate on the move. It’s just unfortunate that the laggy touchscreen remains one of the poorer examples on the market.

The Impreza is offered in one refreshingly simple take-it-or-leave-it trim. SE comes with lashings of kit, including an infotainment system, a DAB radio, heated seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, as well as a reversing camera.

The notable omission is sat-nav, which you can’t even spec as an option. Subaru’s justification is that most people prefer to use their phone for navigation and the inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto therefore negates the need for it.
