2023 Subaru Impreza Hatchback Safety and Reliability

Subaru Impreza Hatchback Reliability Rating

2023 Impreza Hatchback Safety

The Subaru Impreza is an exceptionally safe car. The NHTSA's review of the Subaru Impreza Hatchback resulted in a maximum rating of five out of five stars for overall safety, while the IIHS bestowed the 2022 model with the maximum Good rating in all crashworthiness tests and a Top Safety Pick award. That being said, the 2023 Impreza's halogen headlights on all the trims below the Limited are only rated as Marginal and it receives a Poor rating for the IIHS's updated side test, so it's likely to lose that Top Safety Pick award this year.
