The 2011 Impreza Continues to Impress—At 2010 Prices
With responsive handling, spirited performance, and standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive technology, the Subaru Impreza has long been known for offering big-time features in the compact-car segment. Well, that’s not going to change for 2011, but now there’s even better news: On non-turbocharged models, neither will the base sticker price. (Information about the turbo-powered 2011 Impreza GT was not available at press time.)
The Subaru Impreza 2.5i will again lead the lineup by starting at just $17,495—the same base price as last year—for the sedan and $17,995 for the five-door hatchback. Both models holster Subaru’s peppy 170-hp boxer engine, along with standard safety features like Vehicle Dynamics Control and Brake Assist, an impressive level of content, and, for the 2011 model year, two new colors. Marine Blue Pearl and Sky Blue Metallic are in; Newport Blue is out.
Moving up the Impreza 2.5i Premium adds more features, but adds nothing over the model’s 2010 MSRP. The entry point for the 2.5i Premium sedan is $18,495, while the hatch is $18,995. At this trim level, the Impreza includes alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped shifter and steering wheel, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, and an upgraded audio package. Also now in the mix for the 2011 model year are standard Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free connectivity, a USB port, a single-disc CD player with MP3/WWA capability, and a set of six enhanced speakers.
Another revision for 2011 is the 2.5i Premium’s available Power Moonroof Package. Selecting this option nets drivers the Impreza’s all-weather package, fog lights and a power moonroof, all at a $1,350 discount.
Maintaining its 2010 price as well is the Impreza Outback Sport. This rugged Subaru boasts a starting sticker price of $19,995, along with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, a raised suspension for greater ground clearance, fog lights, the Subaru all-weather package and five new exterior color choices: Monotone styles will include Camellia Red Pearl and Sage Green Metallic, and Obsidian Black, Marine Blue and Steel Silver are the new two-tone looks.
Drivers can expect to see the 2011 Subaru Impreza range (except for the GT model) at local dealerships beginning this month.
