The affordable Impreza compact offers drivers a range of options to build a custom Subaru. It comes in several trims with dozens of opportunities to accessorize.
The Impreza has an accessible starting price, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. In fact, Subaru offers more options for customizing your Impreza than many other pricier, higher-end makes. Save on the sticker price and instead invest it in tailoring your ride just for you.
With so many options, where should you begin? We've got you covered with this guide to building a custom Subaru Impreza.

2022 Subaru Impreza customization options

The 2022 Subaru Impreza allows drivers to get behind the wheel of a sporty compact car without breaking the bank. As far as comfort goes, it's spacious and reliable. Unlike many cars in its class, it’s equipped with all-wheel drive standard. And you can decide whether you want the best of Subaru packaged in an efficient sedan or a functional five-door to boot.
Subaru gives you four trim levels to pick from: the base trim, the
Premium
, the
Sport
, and the
Limited
. At each level, you can choose between the sedan or five-door frame. However, as of 2022, the sedan is no longer offered in the Limited trim.
Opting for a higher trim secures a more elevated ride—for a price. The base trim sedan starts at $18,795, whereas the Limited five-door starts at $26,395.
Begin your customization journey by
building and pricing
your car on Subaru’s website. You can start by selecting your trim and door preference. 
From there, you can customize your transmission, color, and interior with upwards of 68 opportunities to accessorize your new ride. Subaru also offers a fixed package you can select to deck your car out with recommended premiere features. 
All of these options are great. But not all options are available at every trim level. So double-check that your must-haves can be added when building your vehicle.

Subaru Impreza optional package

Subaru doesn’t offer a range of packages for this year’s Impreza. It claims that its standard model already comes stacked with the most-wanted bells and whistles. It does offer a single package on some trims though: the Premium sedan and five-door, the Sport sedan, and the Limited five-door. The packages are small, but they pack a punch for their price tag. 
Check out your trim below to see what’s offered.

How to customize your Subaru Impreza to save money

The Impreza is Subaru’s more affordable model. But affordable doesn’t mean cheap. It can be easy to get carried away when building and customizing your vehicle. All of a sudden, your once-attainable ride demands a now-abominable price tag. Time for some math.
The Subaru Impreza’s base sedan starts you off at $18,795. This is a reasonable new car in today’s market. Upgrade to the Limited five-door with all the fixings for a price point of around $40,200. That’s a difference of $21,405. 
If the higher price is still worth it for you, by all means, go for it. Though do keep in mind that this isn’t a one-time expenditure. These extra features will also elevate your monthly insurance rate.
How come? Risk. The more features you add, the more you have to repair and replace. The more risk insurers cover, the more they add to your monthly
car insurance
bill. So before you click that order button, make sure you’re ready to foot the bill.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
