Announced on September 25th, the 2015 Impreza will have an updated front facia and interior, as well as incorporate EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, joining the ranks of the Forester, Outback, and Legacy for that "Top Safety Pick +" category by the IIHS. As with all 2015 Subaru models, it will have a standard rear-vision camera displayed on it's new touchscreen radio. The tachometer has been updated, as well has taking up a sharper rear spoiler for sedan models. The new facia has some obvious cues from the Impreza and WRX concepts that enthusiasts have been clamoring for, which is nice to see coming through as Subaru moves ahead. They have also managed to wring out another MPG or two with the design, likely from the new aerodynamics of the revised front-end.

In 2012, the 4th Generation Impreza design was the hot-ticket item for Subaru. A fuel-efficient AWD car that cost about the same as a Civic or Focus made people take another look at Subaru. These cars were (and still are) hard to get because of the demand for them as new owners were attracted to the idea of having that awesome grip of All-Wheel Drive while not being punished at the pump. I would know, as I was one of them!
