Subaru probably could've cheapened it out and hit their sales targets anyway, so it's admirable that they went in the other direction

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.

 

Conclusion

The Impreza offers a lot of value for the money, although an advanced infotainment system is missing from the options list.

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.
