For 2010 the Subaru Impreza 2.5i, 2.5GT and Outback Sport sedan and 5-door models receive minor styling freshening and additional amenities for 2010. A new grille is featured on all models.

The Premium trim for 2.5i models offers a new Special Edition upgrade with moonroof, fog lights and All-Weather Package with heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer. Also for 2010, the optional navigation system in the 2.5i Premium now includes Bluetooth wireless capability, with microphone in the overhead console.

The 2.5-liter normally aspirated Boxer 4-cylinder engine in the Impreza 2.5i and Outback Sport delivers 170 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque.

Powered by a 224-horsepower turbocharged engine teamed to a standard 4-speed automatic transmission, the Impreza 2.5GT delivers powerful performance with 226 lb.-ft. of peak torque. Sport-tuned suspension and standard 17-inch alloy wheels ensure both agile handling and compliant everyday ride quality.

The Impreza emphasizes interior comfort and spaciousness. Materials, including double-stitched fabrics and high-grade interior plastics, impart a feeling of high quality. The sweeping twin cockpit design embraces occupants and brushed aluminum-look insets flow into the center stack.

Subaru Impreza features large door openings for good ingress and egress, and the rear doors open to 75 degrees to allow for easy rear seat access.
