Default SOA Announces 2023 Subaru Impreza Pricing

No changes for the last year of the current model.

I'm not sure how long it's been optioned this way, but the Sport sedan doesn't get a manual option, whereas the Sport hatchback does.

I'm still enjoying my 2017 Impreza Sport hatch after 5 years of ownership. I did have weird issues with the oil pan and lower crank case leaking, both past warranty, so the repairs weren't cheap. Overall, though, I'd still recommend the vehicle, keeping in mind that I did buy a first model year of the all-new SGP at that time.

I took a survey from Subaru last week and the one thing I noted is that the Impreza could use more power. Especially the Sport, it should have the FB25DI at the very least.

How much of a price increase does it represent w.r.t 2022 models?

2023 is likely the last year before the expected redesign, both for the Crosstrek and the Impreza. We'll see which engines they'll keep - or introduce.

2022 base price: $18,795

2023 base price: $19,795

As far as I can tell they're asking for an additional $1k without changing a single thing from the base model.

You know, I'm right there with you on this with my '17 also (and a CVT none the less)... My only issues I had was a bad alignment that killed my 1st set of tires in 2 years - improper PDI, and I think bad settings on the alignment machine after bringing it in a few times (inside of tires wore down to cord), and rear wheel bearings having to be replaced last year (proving it really is a Subaru). I have no real plans to get rid of it. As a matter of fact, it's the 1st new car I bought, paid off, and had for more than 4 years. Previous one being my WRX wagon that I had for 4 years, and bought an RX8 to race with in '05. I don't keep cars that long and this one? It does what it needs to do, just fine... it's an appliance.

I might be alone in this, but I'd be very interested in a sport trim of the Impreza hatch with a naturally aspirated 2.4 and a manual. Even though I own a current gen Impreza, the thing that's always bothered me about it is its barely sufficient power. It's fine as a daily, but whereas I might have taken out an old Impreza RS just to drive it, I'm never tempted to do the same with my 2019.

I don't think they are ever making an Impreza hatch that will step on the toes of the WRX, nor do I think we're ever getting a Levorg. But I don't need a turbo engine to have fun, just a car that can get out of its own way.

I could see such an Impreza being pretty good competition for the cheaper end of the "hot hatch" segment without reaching WRX territory. Like something to compete with the Elantra N-line, Forte GT, and maybe the Civic Si.
