Trims, Powertrain and Fuel Economy

The 2021 Subaru Impreza is available as either a sedan or hatchback in Base, Premium, Sport, and Limited trim levels. Under the hood of each is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 152 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque. For the base sedan and hatchback and the Sport hatchback, a five-speed manual transmission is standard. They’re eligible for a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which the other trims receive as standard. As mentioned, all-wheel drive is included across the board.

The base sedan with the manual tranny returns an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, while the manual transmission base hatchback gets 24 city/31 highway. The sedan version of the Sport gets 27 city/36 highway, and the Sport hatchback with the standard manual transmission achieves 22 city/30 highway. If you opt for the Sport hatchback with the CVT, fuel efficiency increases to 27 city/35 highway. The CVT base, Premium, and Limited sedan and hatchback each return 28 city/36 highway.
