2014 Subaru Impreza – Standard AWD instils confidence

Published on August 01 2014

''Having received top safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (TOP SAFETY PICK), and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (5-star overall rating), the 2014 Subaru Impreza is certainly seems like a fine selection.''

If snowstorms are regular occurrences during the winter months in your area, we suggest taking the 2014 Subaru Impreza out for a spin. It’s the logical choice for consumers in need of a compact car that will get them through thick and thin. Whether it be rain, snow or icy weather conditions, the Impreza offers secure handling, standard all-wheel drive, top safety ratings and good fuel economy, all of which merit your attention.

Having received top safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (TOP SAFETY PICK), and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (5-star overall rating), the 2014 Subaru Impreza is certainly seems like a fine selection for a compact car. Add-on the automaker’s popular full-time AWD, and it should almost seal the deal. The system, which “constantly adjusts torque distribution to front and rear wheels”, instils confidence in the driver as it makes life easier and safer for everyone. Overall, the AWD system makes for a more enjoyable driving experience.

As for what lies under the hood of the 2014 Impreza, the vehicle is equipped with a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine, generating 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm. It can be paired to either a standard 5-speed manual transmission with a hill holder system, or an available Continuously Variable Transmission with or without manual mode (paddle shifters), depending on the model. The 2014 Impreza will provide its occupants with a smooth ride, and reassuring handling.

Fuel economy ratings are also quite good, and the option of a CVT transmission will help (to an extent) as well. Consumption is rated at 7.5/5.5 litres per 100 kilometres (city/hwy) when equipped with the automatic, and 8.3 and 5.9 L/100km with the manual. Subaru has also mentioned that its Impreza model meets low emission vehicle (LEV2) standards.

As for the different trims, the 2014 Subaru Impreza is offered as a 4- or 5-door model, and can include a Touring, Sport or Limited package. The vehicle also has a starting price of $19,995 MSPR, and provides a spacious interior with rear seats that fold flat, and a comfortable cabin with available heated leather seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector. Air conditioning with air filtration is standard, though buyers can also opt for dual-zone automatic climate control instead.

Steering wheel-mounted audio controls with Bluetooth audio streaming and mobile phone connectivity are standard features, while luxury elements like voice-activated navigation, SMS text messaging, a 6.1-inch touch screen, rearview camera and satellite radio are offered with the 2.0i Limited package for both the 4- and 5-door models.

With a classic style, several available features from which to choose from, a spacious interior and good fuel economy numbers, the 2014 Subaru Impreza is already on the right track. However, the automaker’s standard AWD system alone is enough to put this compact car above its rivals, and while some drivers are not willing to push their vehicle too hard during the winter months, the Impreza offers the security and balance that makes it fun to drive, regardless of the weather.
