Subaru owners often give a passing wave to one another on British roads – a fact that illustrates the left-field choice that the brand’s offerings have become in this country.

In fact, the Impreza is the second-lowest-selling model globally in the Subaru line-up. Yet, despite meagre sales, the manufacturer says the Impreza is its best-known car, thanks to its illustrious World Rally Championship history.

This latest Impreza is bigger inside than before, while there's a simple choice of two four-cylinder petrol ‘boxer’ engines – 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre units – with a Lineartronic CVT gearbox and one trim level.

It’s not cheap, though, and there’s some stiff competition in the family car class. The Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus are among the most recognisable and ubiquitous cars in the UK, along with the Skoda Octavia and Honda Civic.

Does the new Impreza do enough to be a more palatable mainstream offering from Subaru or is it still a niche choice? Read on and we will tell you everything you need to know about the car.
