The Impreza, part of Subaru's lineup since 1993, is a midsize sedan/hatchback/wagon with seating up to 5. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. With standard all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. Subaru offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2023 Subaru Impreza is below average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2023 Subaru Impreza has a score of 73, implying a 0.051% chance of driver death (4.5% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.043%, and the chance of injury falls to 3.9%.

We estimate that the 2023 Subaru Impreza has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0505% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.7711%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0505% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.7711% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2023 Subaru Impreza is 8% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2023 Subaru Impreza is 0% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

2023 Subaru Impreza offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2023 Subaru Impreza: EyeSight Driver Assist Technology (Forward Collision Warnings / Automatic Emergency Braking & Lane Departure Warnings).

Some advanced safety features --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional High Beam Assist automatically switches high beam headlights off when oncoming traffic is approaching and turns them back on when there aren't any vehicles ahead. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

But it is safer than many comparable models.
