Subaru of America, Inc., today announced pricing on the 2021 Impreza sedan and 5-door models, the only compact passenger cars in America equipped with all-wheel drive as standard in every model trim. Offered in four trim levels – Base, Premium, Sport and Limited – the 2021 Impreza arrives at Subaru retailers in October, with a price starting at $18,795 for a sedan with 5-speed manual transmission, just a $100 increase from 2020 model year.

With two selectable drive modes, the character of the power unit changes, giving the driver the freedom to customize the performance characteristics to match driving conditions or their personal driving preference.

All Impreza models equipped with the Lineartronic CVT come standard with the award-winning Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which includes Automatic Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, as well as Lead Vehicle Start Alert.
