Why the New Subaru Impreza Is the Best Car to Drive in 2024

You can’t believe that it’s already 2024.

Don’t worry the feeling’s mutual.

And it’s about that time when you start thinking about which car is best placed to launch you into a year of well-deserved fun on the road. This season it’s time to put behind the old and say hello to the new with new wheels, upgraded technology and world-renowned style.

No car is better equipped to do this than the new 2024 Subaru Impreza.

Here’s why.

The new Impreza is more exciting than ever to drive


Subaru has gone all in one the Impreza to live up to the Japanese carmaker’s name – yep, the Subaru’s classic Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed direct injection Boxer engine make for an outstanding ride – whether you’re sporting a hatch or sedan – because of course you can choose between the two.

But it’s not just a piece of classic Subaru genius that makes this car so fun – it’s also extremely agile on the road. Here’s a closer look at some of the features available on this dream ride.

Safety all the way

There’s no doubt that the new Subaru Impreza has a lot of tricks up its sleeve. Subaru EyeSight Driver’s assist, plus Vision Assist (on some models) and of course a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating come together to form one of the safest cars this year.

Whether you’re dropping the kids off at school or having a bit of fun yourself by testing the limits, you can be sure that the new Subaru Impreza is equipped to deal with accidents better than most and, even better – prevent them from happening in the first place.

To do just that, Subaru has fitted the Impreza with state of the art technology including blind-spot eliminating rear-view mirrors, reverse camera and reverse automatic braking – because you can’t ever be too safe.

Plus, did you know that the iconic Subaru Boxer engine is specifically designed to be safer than other engines? Because of its innovative design (lower and flatter than most engines), the Boxer engine will slide below the cabin rather than through it in the event of a front collision. Now that’s pretty cool!

What’s it like to live with the new Impreza?


Expect the new Impreza to wow with a fun and easy-going approach to driving, handling, and day-to-day living. If you plan on taking your Impreza out on road trips, you should consider the Sedan – which has slightly more room in the boot for your gear.

With a braked towing capacity of up to 1200kg, and enough steam to send you flying down the freeway on the weekend – you can feel every moment of joy once your foot is pressed to the floor.

Want to stand out? Upgrade to 18-inch alloy wheels and throw in some leather accented seats – oh, and some self-levelling LED headlights with auto-off (dusk-sensing) to complete the package. Yes, the Impreza has a sense of style.

And with more efficiency, more grunt, and more agility, you’re guaranteed to have a blast on the road, whether you’re driving alone or bringing the whole family along for the ride.

How fuel efficient is the New Impreza?

Very. With Subaru’s state of the art fuel-saving technology, and Auto-vehicle hold technology, you can be sure to get the most out of every tank. Don’t be caught out with heavy refuels – seriously there’s nothing worse – right?

With the all new Subaru Impreza, you can be sure to get the bang for your buck you deserve without holding back on the power you crave. It’s all in one piece, ready for you to take home.

So what are you looing at for the base model Subaru Impreza?

115kw of power with a fuel efficiency of 7.2L/100km. Pretty darn good!

Technology that dazzles

The Subaru Impreza comes with an array of smart technology set to make your ride even more comfortable with a highly responsive touchscreen with integrated Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Base models come with a 6.5-inch screen while higher trims snag a whopping 8-inch screen in the cabin.
