Subaru of America, Inc. announced today that the 2018 Subaru Impreza was named to Kelley Blue Book’s 10 Coolest New Cars Under $20,000 for 2018 for capability, styling and value. The Impreza is equipped with ’s legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a roster of standard features including smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay™, Android™ Auto with a price starting at $18,495.

While the average new car on the road today cost more than $35,000, there are still plenty of vehicle options available at a more affordable price without sacrificing comfort and style. To help narrow down the choices, the editors at Kelley Blue Book, the leading provider of new and used vehicle information, hand-picked the Impreza along with nine other vehicles.

The 2018 Subaru Impreza sedan and 5-door are offered in four trim levels: 2.0i base, Premium, Sport and Limited. All trim levels are powered by a 152-hp 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine and feature standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that instinctively sends power to the wheels with the best traction, helping you stay on the road and on course. The 2018 Impreza achieves the highest fuel economy of any gasoline All-Wheel Drive car available in the United States. Its EPA estimated ratings of up to 28 mpg city / 38 mpg highway and 32 mpg combined for models with the CVT automatic transmission are comparable with front-wheel drive cars.

The Impreza starts with an extensive roster of standard features including SUBARU STARLINK™ multimedia that provides smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as power windows with auto-up/down on both driver and passenger sides, 60/40-split fold-down rear seat, power door locks and side mirrors, multi-function display with fuel economy information, tilt and telescoping steering column, security system with engine immobilizer, carpeted floor mats and more.

The 2018 Impreza incorporates Subaru’s new design language with the brand’s signature hexagonal grille and hawk-eye headlights resulting in a more sculptural body with an athletic stance accentuated by prominent wheel arches and flowing lines while maintaining a family resemblance to the rest of the model lines. The dramatic new look carries into the cabin, with an outward-flow design that follows the front of the car.
