Good news for you folks in Colorado. Subaru has released pricing for the 2010 Impreza, and while most of the new models are the same price as the '09s, one model gets a price cut. Not only that, but all Imprezas now feature Symmetrical AWD badges (woohoo!). The base car's price remains unchanged at $17,495, however the big news is the Impreza 2.5i Premium gets its price slashed by $1,000 to $18,495. Not too shabby. Also of interest is that pricing for the 265-hp WRX remains unchanged at $24,995 for the sedan and $25,495 for the five-door. And in case you're wondering, an Impreza is a WRX sans turbo and a few other rally-it-up bits. The name means "Buy Me or Else" in Denver. Full press release after the jump.

  • Record-breaking model prices largely unchanged for 2010
  • Premium model price now $1,000 lower

CHERRY HILL, N.J., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru of America, Inc. has announced pricing of the 2010 model year Impreza line-up, including a new Special Edition Package available on the Impreza 2.5i Premium.

Impreza blends fun-to-drive performance, safety, and functionality with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, making it an unmatched value in the compact segment. As well as receiving the highest possible ratings in IIHS crash tests, and being listed as 2009 IIHS "Top Safety Pick", the Impreza also scored NHTSA five-star crash test ratings for frontal impact for both the driver and front passenger, a five-star rating for the driver side impact, and a four-star rating for the rear passenger side impact.

The Impreza 2.5i Premium is reconfigured for 2010, with pricing starting at $18,495 - $1,000 less than the 2009 model.

Impreza 2.5i, 2.5GT and Outback Sport models add a stylish new grille and an attractive new exterior color Camellia Red Pearl is available on 2.5i & 2.5GT models. GT models are powered by a 224-hp intercooled turbo Boxer engine and teamed to standard 4-speed automatic transmission and Active AWD version of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

The value continues with the introduction of the new Special Edition Package that includes power moonroof and fog lights as well as the All-Weather Package. The Impreza 2.5i Premium with the Special Edition Package starts at $18,995.

Bluetooth hands-free cell phone capability is now standard on 2.5i Premium and WRX Premium models with the navigation system.

For 2010, the Impreza Outback Sport model adds Paprika Red Pearl/Steel Silver Metallic and a new two-tone exterior color, and retains its starting price of $19,995.

The performance-oriented 2010 Impreza WRX has a starting price of $24,995, again unchanged from last year and is available exclusively with a 5-speed manual transmission. The All-Wheel Drive Impreza WRX features a 2.5-Liter DOHC inter-cooled turbocharged engine delivering 265 horsepower, a new exterior side sill, 225/45 R17 lower profile summer performance tires, 17-inch alloy wheels, an Aero Package, WRX upholstery w/red stitching and WRX logo on front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and red stitching, and STI type grille w/WRX badge. The Impreza WRX 5-door model has the same features as the 4-door, plus a rear spoiler and has a starting price of $25,495.

Pricing for the high-performance model WRX STI, which for 2010 features black alcantara trim and a black center console with red stitching also remains unchanged at $34,995.

      I am very impressed with the new Suburu Impreza. Just read about the new diesel model over in the car news at exchange and mart http://bit.ly/PdGTr and am really looking forward to seeing how successful it is. Seeing as the car comes with a generous level of standard equipment, 258lb/ft of peak torque between 1,800 and 2,400 rpm and the fact that petrol prices are once more reaching ridiculously high prices, I think it could do really well.

      Ah Subaru, sticking with 4 speed autos and 5 speed manuals like it's 1999.
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's kind of nice to know that the 2010 Impreza isn’t changing all that much cause I just leased an '09 WRX :D

        Hoosker, any problems with the turbo in your WRX? I've read on NASIOC there has been some reports of failed turbos in the 2008/2009 WRX (new cars with very little miles on them).

        I'm looking at 2010 WRX or Impreza 2.5i premium as my next car and the deciding factor is 1) insurance 2) if Subaru has resolved failed Turbos in 2008/2009 WRX.

      Why is it that it takes two suffixes that mean the same thing to create an adjective from symmetry?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Too bad it looks like a jelly bean.

      Damn subaru did you screw up the look of all your cars!
      • 5 Years Ago
      The Impreza Premium 2.5i now $1000 cheaper with optional $500 Special edition package (fog lights, moonroof, all weather package) is an excellent deal especially for someone who commutes in snowy areas.

      Is it me or is the boot ultra tiny?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Headphone jacks do not plug into the RCA connections!!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Actually, that's funny, it's one of my biggest gripes I have with my '08 WRX Premium. I had to go and find 3.5mm to RCA cables because the Premium package doesn't have 3.5mm Aux in for audio like the base version does. This may sound like a small deal, but try to find an iPhone car kit that has RCA output instead of 3.5mm...none exist...
        • 5 Years Ago
        I'm guessing you didn't see the picture they posted.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Ummmm, with a cable from any RadioShack, or just about anywhere else, they do and you don't even need to be an audiophile to figure out how to plug it in.

        Mini headphone jack to stereo RCA if you're curious what kind of cable you need. Red to red, white to white. Stick the other end that looks exactly like a headphone plug into the headphone jack.

      As an owner of an 08 WRX (which I love), I just don't get why Subaru keeps making the Impreza GT. Most WRX owners I run into are gearheads who want the manual, and most would probably splurge a little extra to get the 265 horsepower.

      Why keep making this GT with the old engine and an automatic? Who exactly does this car appeal to?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Thanks for suckering me into looking at the 2008 price sheet.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Just make sure you don't get soap in the intercooler; that'll void the warranty.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Still ugly...
      • 5 Years Ago
      Im sad that theres wasn't any facelift..Theyé,ve updated the impreza every 2 years since 2002....
