Even in base form, the 2011 Subaru Impreza comes pretty well-equipped—and with all sound systems upgraded for 2011 the Impreza now includes standard Bluetooth hands-free capability.

Subaru has improved the value of most of its models in recent years, adding more standard equipment without significantly raising prices, and the Impreza and Outback Sport are no exceptions. The base 2.5i comes standard with 16-inch steel wheels, full power accessories, keyless entry, air conditioning, cruise control, and a 60/40-split-folding rear seat. The 2.5i Premium adds 16-inch alloy wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an upgraded sound system with steering-wheel controls.

In the Legacy family, the Outback is a very different model, with its own feature set and significantly more ground clearance, but here in the Impreza family, the Outback Sport is only a trim level of the Impreza. It also includes larger wheels, a slightly raised suspension, fog lamps, a roof rack, body color mirrors, a wiper de-icer, heated front seats, leather trim, and special two-tone paint schemes. The effect of the Outback Sport, which is only offered in hatchback form, is that it's a slightly more rugged-looking, well-equipped version of the Impreza.

The entire Impreza line gets new audio systems for 2011; the base sound system now includes six speakers, a CD player, XM and Sirius compatibility, an auxiliary input, a USB Port, iPod control capability, and integrated Bluetooth hands-free calling functions.

A Tom Tom Navigation System—with a detachable portable system with 4.3-inch screen—remains available with Impreza Premium or Outback Sport models; on Premium models it's packaged with the moonroof, fog lamps, a windshield wiper de-icer, and heated seats and mirrors.

Conclusion

In addition to its standout all-wheel drive, the 2011 Subaru Impreza and Outback Sport include an extensive feature set for an attractively low price.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
