The 2013 Impreza remains offered in base, Premium, Limited and Sport Limited models, ans all of them have a surprisingly strong set of standard features for the money—especially considering that all-wheel drive is standard.
All Impreza models for 2013 include Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming, iPod controls, a USB port, and an auxiliary input jack.
Premium models add to the base model popular equipment like cruise control, alloy wheels, six-speaker sound, and fog lamps. The Limited trim level adds 17-inch alloy wheels and the CVT with 6-speed manual mode and paddle shifters as standard, plus leather seat upholstery, automatic climate control, auto on/off headlights, an AM/FM/CD stereo with HD radio, and some trim options. A navigation system with a 6.1-inch screen is one of a few options.
There's also an appearance-oriented Sport Premium model that for 2013 gains a leather-wrapped steering-wheel and shift knob.
Options include the Lineartronic CVT, the Navigation package, a power moonroof, a 17-inch alloy wheel package, and an all-weather package with heated front seats and exterior mirrors and a wiper de-icer.
Four sound systems are available across the various models: standard, premium, a Display Radio with a 4.3-inch screen, and a Navigation Radio that neatly packages a navigation system that displays on a 6.1-inch LCD screen. However there's no single infotainment system that wraps connectivity, apps capabilities, and navigation together.
The Outback Sport model is gone, replaced for 2013 by a new, outdoor- and activity-themed model, the XV Crosstrek.
