Subaru “Impreza” which is active in the rally world and is well known all over the world. The 4-door sedan model of the Impreza is the “Impreza G4”, and the current model that appeared in October 2016 is the fifth generation Impreza and the second generation Impreza G4.
Here, we will introduce in detail the fuel efficiency performance of Subaru “Impreza G4”, such as catalog fuel efficiency and actual fuel efficiency.
[Points of this article]
✔Click here for WLTC mode catalog fuel consumption and actual fuel consumption by drive system
|Catalog fuel efficiency (km/L)
|Actual fuel consumption (km/L)
|13.0 to 14.1
✔ Inferior to the fuel efficiency of rival cars Mazda “Mazda 3 Sedan” and Toyota “Corolla”
✔ Adopting a new platform achieves excellent steering stability and steering response
Fuel economy characteristics of Impreza G4
Subaru uses its own horizontally opposed engine called “SUBARU BOXER” . The horizontally-opposed engine used in the Impreza G4 is a new-generation engine called the FB type, and various improvements such as a more compact fuel chamber, longer stroke, reduced friction, and lighter pistons have been made to meet the needs of the times. It is an engine that achieves excellent environmental performance and fuel efficiency.
In addition, we have improved fuel efficiency by adopting a form body with excellent aerodynamic performance to reduce air resistance, and by installing multiple technologies that contribute to improving fuel efficiency, such as an idling stop mechanism.
Impreza G4 Catalog Fuel Efficiency
The Impreza G4 has two types of engines: a 1.6L horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine and a 2.0L horizontally opposed 4-cylinder direct injection engine. , 4WD is set.
The WLTC mode catalog fuel efficiency of the Impreza G4 is as follows.

Actual fuel consumption of Impreza G4
According to the site ” e Fuel Economy “, which collects the actual fuel consumption data of owners riding the Impreza G4, the actual fuel consumption of the Impreza G4 (as of May 23, 2021) is as follows.
|Fuel consumption (km/L)
|1.6iL EyeSight/1.6iS EyeSight
|2.0iL EyeSight/2.0iS EyeSight
Unlike the JC08 mode, which runs on flat roads under certain conditions, the WLTC mode takes into account the effects of traffic lights and traffic jams, and uses average driving modes for urban areas, suburbs that are not easily affected by traffic jams, and highways. This is an internationally used measurement mode configured by usage time distribution.
For this reason, the WLTC mode is said to produce values closer to the actual fuel consumption than the JC08 mode that has been used in Japan so far, but it is generally said that there is a difference of about 10 to 1.5% from the actual fuel consumption. It is said.
Considering that point, the difference between the catalog fuel consumption and the actual fuel consumption of the Impreza G4 is smaller than the average value for the 1.6L engine 2WD vehicle, but the difference is slightly larger than the average value for the 2.0L engine 2WD vehicle. It is 2.0L engine 4WD vehicles have some differences depending on the grade, but it can be said that they are within the range of average values.
Driving performance and ride comfort of Impreza G4

The current Impreza G4 adopts the Subaru Global Platform, a next-generation platform that achieves extremely high rigidity and a low center of gravity, dramatically improving steering stability and responsiveness to steering operations .
In addition, it provides a comfortable ride with little shock when overcoming bumps or driving on rough roads, while suppressing unpleasant vibrations to ensure quietness that allows conversations to be enjoyed while driving.
When choosing a car, be sure to check the fuel consumption
Most of the cars of recent years have reasonable environmental performance and fuel efficiency compared to cars of a decade ago, but the current situation is that there is still a difference in fuel efficiency performance depending on the model.
Therefore, when choosing a car, we recommend that you check not only the catalog fuel consumption, but also the actual fuel consumption.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: What is the Catalog Fuel Economy of Impreza G4?
A: The current model Impreza G4 has two types of engines: a 1.6L horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine and a 2.0L horizontally opposed 4-cylinder direct injection engine. There are also 2WD and 4WD engines. The WLTC mode catalog fuel efficiency of the Impreza G4 is 13.0-14.1km/L for 2WD vehicles and 12.4-13.5km/L for 4WD vehicles.
Q2: How does the catalog fuel economy of the Impreza G4 compare with rival cars?
A: Rival cars of the Impreza G4 include the Mazda “Mazda 3 Sedan” and the Toyota “Corolla.” Comparing the catalog fuel efficiency of these two models and the Impreza G4, it can be seen that the catalog fuel efficiency of the Impreza G4 is lagging behind both rivals.
Q3: What is the driving performance of the Impreza G4?
A: The Impreza G4 features improved steering stability and responsiveness to steering operations through the adoption of the Subaru Global Platform, a new-generation platform that is thoroughly lightweight and highly rigid. In addition, it realizes a comfortable ride with little shock or vibration regardless of the driving environment.
