2018 Subaru Impreza



The Subaru Impreza in 2018 can be purchased in its base, Premium, Sport, and Limited levels of trim. Both the sedan and the five-door model have been built upon the new Subaru Global Platform. This new platform has been engineered to offer the best driving pleasure, collision protection, and ride comfort.

This new Impreza has a more spacious body, more innovative design, and better driver-assist technologies. Apple CarPlay is now supported along with Android Auto and Near Field Communication, so your entertainment and information needs are easily met. In 2018, automatic headlamp and windshield wiper activation has been added for the three highest trims, and all Imprezas come with the sought-after Subaru Symmetrical AWD system.

Every Impreza for this model year comes with a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter Subaru Boxer engine with direct fuel injection. It offers 152 hp and 145-pound feet of torque. The 2.0i and 2.0i Sport come with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard. A CVT comes on the Premium and Limited levels as standard and features both a 7-speed manual mode function and steering wheel paddle shifters.

The Impreza gets as much as 38 miles per gallon on the highway and can go at least 450 miles on a full tank, so it is easily one of the best all-wheel drive vehicles sold in America in terms of gas mileage and fuel economy.

The 2018 Subaru Impreza is available for sale in Lee's Summit at Lee's Summit Subaru. Lee's Summit Subaru is one of the most trusted dealerships serving the communities of Kansas City; Odessa; Raytown MO; Kansas City, MO; Blue Springs, MO; Liberty, MO; and Gladstone, MO, among others.


The 2018 Subaru Impreza for sale in Lee's Summit has been newly designed so that it is ready for whatever the 21st century has to throw at it. The signature hexagon grille and C-shaped headlamps are still there, but they have been placed on a body that is at clearly more sculpted and more athletic. There are flowing lines and prominent wheel arches. Even the interior is more dramatic and its outward flowing look follows the front of the vehicle.

The wheelbase is 105.1 inches, which is an inch more than the previous generation Impreza. The sedans and the 5-door models are both 1.6 inches longer and 1.5 inches wider. This means that the cabin is more spacious for driver and passengers. They are almost a half inch lower in height, though, which makes for better aerodynamics and less of a drag coefficient. The look is sleek, but the great visibility stays.

This new generation of vehicles from Subaru is based on the new Global Platform that includes the Subaru Boxer engine, Eyesight, and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. This new setup increases straight-ahead stability, comfort, and agility while at the same time ensuring that sound and vibration are suppressed in ways that have never before been experienced in a compact vehicle. Rigidity has been increased by no less than 70 percent.

With its low center of gravity and revamped suspension system, this is a giant leap for Subaru in terms of performance. Body roll has been reduced by half and the ability to avoid possible hazards will be a great benefit to those who drive the 2018 Impreza to the max.


You won't find a car anywhere in its class that rivals the 2018 Subaru Impreza in style and performance. The Impreza is truly everything you could ever want to be rolled into one impressive package, and it all begins with its four available trim levels: the 2.0i base, the Sport, the Premium, and the Limited.

The comprehensive features offered on the Impreza 2.0i include power locks, windows, and side mirrors, carpeted floor mats, a folding rear seat, and an interactive display. For all your entertainment needs, the 2.0i also includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the unrivaled STARLINK multimedia system featuring a 6.5-inch touchscreen.

The Impreza Sport adds a little exclusivity to those looking for a vehicle that pops. Standout features include LED lights, turn signal side mirrors, a sleek black-finish front grille and rocker panels that match the body color. Black rear gate trim and a gorgeous black and red motif that integrates into the entire exterior provide the perfect contrast to the multi-function display and high-class Sport gauges.

For a happy medium, consider the Impreza Premium, which includes every standard feature of the 2.0i and incorporates extras such as automatic headlight and windshield wiper activation, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a weather package that includes luxurious heated seats. A power moonroof and driver assist technologies are also available to put the perfect finishing touches on your Premium upgrade.

For the ultimate in luxury, the Impreza Limited is also available for those who accept nothing but the utmost opulence in their choice of vehicle. An elegant chrome exterior trim sets the vehicle apart at first sight, leading into the indulgent interior featuring a 6-way power driver's seat, automatic climate control system, STARLINK multimedia system, and keyless access in addition to an exclusive, sleek instrument cluster. A full-color LCD display, premium audio by Harman Kardon, navigation by TomTom and high beam assist provide additional a la carte options to customize your Impreza into a car that will blow all competition out of the water.

AWD and Sport

The 2018 Impreza is available in two different versions that use a different version of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. This system delivers constant power to all four wheels and allows torque to be transferred effortlessly between the front and rear where needed. Vehicle Dynamics Control is standard on both as well, improving traction in all types of weather.


The standard Impreza models will have a 5-speed manual transmission that will have a viscous-coupling locking center differential to evenly distribute torque and deliver more traction where needed. Some models will include the Lineartronic CVT, which is an electronically managed continuously variable transfer clutch that manages the distribution of torque based on traction, speed, and cornering.

2.0i Sport

The 2.0i Sport is available either as a sedan or a 5-door, and it's definitely fun to drive. Sitting on 18-inch machine-finish alloy wheels, the Sport combines a stiffer suspension with customized tuning, Active Torque Vectoring, and a 4-way Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Inside, the Sport is even nicer than the Impreza Premium with features like the Subaru STARLINK 8.0'' system, a premium audio system, aluminum pedals, CVT shift boot, keyless access and push-button start, and leather steering wheel and shift handle.

For those who love to drive, the Sport is definitely worth the higher price tag, but the standard model Impreza is impressive in and of itself. The smooth performance and efficiency with which the powertrain operates make either option a great choice for anyone who appreciates the thrill of a good design and well-put-together machine.

Safety Features

The 2018 Impreza received the honor of the 2017 Top Safety Pick from the Institute for Highway and even gets the 2017 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with the safety features delineated below.

The Subaru advanced frontal airbag system, front and driver and passenger seat side impact airbags, side airbags and a driver's knee airbag come standard in all 2018 Impreza models.

This basic package can be upgraded to the to the Safety Plus and Security Plus Package that adds features like remote lock/unlock, vehicle alarm notification, remote vehicle locator, and stolen vehicle recovery service.
