Generation Overview

The 2016 Subaru Impreza marked the last model year of this car's fourth generation, which was introduced in 2012. When this generation debuted, it did so with completely refreshed styling and a more spacious cabin compared to its third-generation counterpart. For example, the 2011 Impreza hatchback offers a maximum of 44 cubic feet of storage, whereas the 2012 model maxes out at a full 52.4 cubic feet. The release of the fourth-generation Subaru also marked the end of the existing 2.4L engine and the appearance of its 2.0L replacement. By the 2016 model year specifically, the Impreza boasted a revised infotainment system. 

2016 Subaru Impreza Engine Options

The 2016 Subaru Impreza is unique in that it's equipped with a "boxer" engine, which uses horizontally-opposed pistons (unlike a traditional in-line four-cylinder). Specifically, this 2.0L four-cylinder engine puts out 148 hp and is equipped with a five-speed manual transmission on the 2.0i and 2.0i Sport Premium trims. On all other trims, a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is standard. 

All-wheel drive is also standard on every 2016 Impreza; however, there are two different all-wheel drive systems available for this model, so configurations may vary. 

2016 Subaru Impreza Interior

Interior space on the 2016 Impreza will vary based on whether you opt for a sedan or hatchback model. On the sedan, you can expect 12 cubic feet of trunk space behind the rear row.

Wrong tires, wrong antifreeze

Ease of locating car. Car was in good shape, and similar to the 2011 Impreza I previously owned. it handles well, especially after the tires were changed. This has been my all time favorite car and I am glad to have found it.


  • Reliability: It starts up immediately on getting in the car, even on the coldest day.
  • Seat Comfort: The seats offer good supports, and are quite comfortable.
  • Styling: I like the style of the is quite beautiful.


  • Value: I thought it was expensive, given the age of the car.
  • Ride and Handling: Car Max sent the car to me with performance tires on it, which do not run well in snow. I put all season radicals on it, which improved the situation completely.
  • Dashboard: It's confusing because there are several measurements that I've not seen before having to do with fuel economy.
