Subaru Australia has increased the pricing of the recently facelifted Impreza small car for MY21.
As before, four grades of the Impreza are available, with the entry-level 2.0i up $250, while the mid-range 2.0i-L and 2.0i-Premium have jumped $130 and $200 respectively. Meanwhile, the flagship 2.0i-S has risen $130.
This means the Impreza line-up now starts from $23,990 plus on-road costs and reaches $31,490 (see full pricing table below). Of note, the five-door hatchback body-style continues to command a $200 premium over its four-door sedan counterpart, with both offered range-wide.
Speaking to CarsGuide, a Subaru Australia spokesperson confirmed no changes have been made to the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai i30, Kia Cerato and Mazda3 rival’s standard specification, with its midlife facelift having only arrived in February.
They added the Impreza’s price increases “are primarily due currency factors and material costs to the factory in Japan”.
All Impreza variants are powered by a 115kW/196Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated boxer four-cylinder petrol engine, which is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and Subaru’s signature symmetrical all-wheel-drive system.
As reported, the Impreza’s midlife facelift ushered in tweaked exterior styling and a revised suspension tune as well as more included features across the range.
