Subaru of America has announced that the 2020 Subaru Impreza was one of five cars named to the PARENTS Best Cars for Teen Drivers list. PARENTS made its decision based on the Impreza Sedan and 5-Door receiving a 5-star overall crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), plus the model’s advanced safety features, standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and proven durability.

“All-wheel drive, a feature that provides better traction on wet roads, comes standard on all models,” PARENTS noted in its article. “Plus, 97 percent of the Imprezas sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today so your teen will likely have the vehicle through college and beyond. (Or get a good price for a trade-in.)”

The magazine was also impressed by Impreza’s roominess, which would make it an appealing car for teen driver needs.

“The Impreza fits all their stuff!” PARENTS noted in its article. “When you fold down the back seats, there’s so much room to haul belongings to college or sports equipment for a weekend adventure.”

The 2020 Subaru Impreza is the only car in its segment with all-wheel drive standard on all trim levels. The Impreza 5-Door, with the rear seatback folded, offers an impressive 55.3 cu. ft. of carrying space, rivaling the space in some small SUVs.

PARENTS also named four 2020 Subaru models to its 20 Best Family Cars of 2020, which include the 3-row Ascent SUV, Crosstrek Hybrid compact SUV, Forester SUV and Legacy midsize sedan.

New for 2020, Rear Seat Reminder is designed to help prevent child and/or pet entrapment by alerting the driver to check the rear seat before exiting the vehicle.
