Interior Legroom & Space

The Impreza’s cabin is light and attractive, with a relatively low beltline and a huge greenhouse housing large windows that provide a view of the outside world. The instrumentation is easy and uncomplicated, rather than complex and demanding. Overall, the appearance is consistent with Subaru’s no-frills attitude. The dashboard and controls are clad in luxurious, upscale, soft-touch materials.

The front seats are comfortable for long road trips, despite lacking lateral support. The head- and legroom are above average for the class. Even though the bottom of the driver’s seat is short, the Impreza has good thigh support and very good back support. Even with a sunroof, there is plenty of headroom. The driver’s left elbow is a little tight, but there is plenty of room for their legs. To be exact, people in the back have 35.6 inches of legroom.

Cabin Storage
There are several storage compartments in the cabin that are useful for storing items such as smartphones, beverages, goggles, handbags, etc. In the first row, there are 2 cup-holders, door panel storage, a storage shelf below the dashboard, a glovebox, and the center box. For the second row, the storage is on the front seat jacket pockets.

Boot Space

The 2015 Impreza has a generous cargo space measuring 22.5 cubes that extends up to 52.4 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded.

Exterior

The 2015 Impreza has its own distinct appeal and can easily be recognized as a Subaru. The grille, front bumper, and headlights have been changed with similarly shaped elements. The changes are slight, but they bring Impreza models closer to the Legacy/Outback design for more parity.

Exaggerated wheel arches nod to the Outback and break up the flanks’ height. The Impreza’s only disappointment is the side aspect of the front fenders, where the wheels appear too small for the lofty cowl and large front overhang. The 2015 model’s side-view mirrors are redesigned to boost aerodynamics; higher trim levels incorporate turn-signal repeaters.

Safety Features

Every 2015 Subaru Impreza comes with stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, and whiplash-reducing front head restraints. All models also come with a rearview camera, while the 2.0i Limited and 2.0i Sport Limited come with a package that includes adaptive cruise control, a forward collision prevention system with automatic braking, and lane departure warning.

Ground Clearance

The 2015 Impreza has a ground clearance of 6.2 inches.

Fuel efficiency

It has a fuel consumption of between 6.4 to 9.5 L/100km.

Conclusion  

The Subaru Impreza is an excellent family car that is ideally suited for city life. It has been improved to be a truly affordable vehicle, and it is also dependable with few difficulties. In particular, the symmetrical AWD and large interior make it a more desirable vehicle to buy than its competitors.
