The only factory option available for the Impreza 2.0i is a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Subaru dealers, however, can install any of a number of extra-cost accessories.
The 2.0i Premium models add 16-inch aluminum wheels, body-color side mirrors, sliding center-console armrest, cruise control, and, for 5-door models, a cargo cover. Versions with a manual transmission also get a standard All-Weather package including heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors, and a windshield wiper de-icer.
If you opt for the CVT, you'll pay extra for that All-Weather package. An Alloy Wheel package adds 17-inch aluminum wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a leather-wrapped shifter to the Impreza 2.0i Premium models, while the optional voice-activated navigation system includes a 6.1-inch touch-screen display, rearview camera, satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth streaming audio, and text-messaging capability.
The 2.0i Sport Premium 5-door is equipped with 2.0i Premium trim plus 17-inch aluminum wheels with a gray finish, fog lights, unique fabric upholstery, black roof rails, and body-colored rocker panel trim. The only option is a CVT.
The 2.0i Limited comes standard with the CVT and a set of paddle shifters that provide manual control over transmission ratios. An upgraded audio system with a 4.3-inch display screen and iTunes tagging capability is also included on Limited models, along with automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors, windshield wiper de-icer, automatic headlights, and fog lights. A power sunroof and a navigation system are optional.
The 2.0i Sport Limited replaces the chrome grille with a silver one, but otherwise the standard equipment and options lay out the same as the Limited.Under the Hood
