Not only does the 2007 Subaru Impreza have a good assortment of standard features for a car within it's class, but reviewers also found that the 2005 interior redesign added some significant improvements. Automobile.com says the design is conservative, but attractive, and "most of the interior plastics are soft to the touch and all the panels fit together perfectly."

Seating

Several reviews like the comfort of the 2007 Subaru Impreza's sport seats. Motor Week calls them "deep" and "grippy, with plenty of support for spirited driving," while AutoMedia.com adds that the spirited driving could last for a while, describing the seats as "comfortable enough for cross country duty."

Reviewers' major complaint about the 2007 Subaru Impreza, as with many small cars, is the amount of room in the rear. Edmunds even finds the "rear legroom is less than what's available" in similar vehicles. Cargo space is considered merely adequate.

Interior Features

The Impreza is generally praised for its interior build quality. Kelley Blue Book finds the Impreza's dash design "fresh and modern, with pleasingly soft surfaces on both the dash face and door panels."

The 2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5i comes standard with sport-design front seats with height-adjustable head restraints, a leather-wrapped shift handle, a six-way manually adjustable driver's seat, a rear-center armrest with a trunk pass-through and an 80-watt four-speaker audio system with single-disc in-dash CD player.

The WRX TR sedan has all the same features, in addition to a sport-design instrumentation with silver gauge trim rings and a center-mounted tachometer. Also included is a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel with a manually adjustable tilt column.

The WRX sedan has performance-design front seats with fixed integrated head restraints, the leather-wrapped steering wheel also featured in the TR sedan, and a 120-watt six-speaker premium audio system with six-disc in-dash CD changer and MP3/WMA capability. Also included with the WRX model is an auxiliary audio jack.

Some reviewers notice how the interior features shape up for the Impreza's core market -- drivers in colder climates. A Car Place finds "the heater is probably the best we've ever seen in a car...within minutes of starting out, you can suffocate in the baking hot air emitted by the Impreza even on very cold days."

Cargo

Reviews pay little notice to the 2007 Subaru Impreza sedan's 11 cubic feet of cargo room, ignoring them instead to review the Impreza wagon's capacity. Consumer Guide describes the sedan's trunk as a "moderately sized hold," but complains that interior storage is lean. Kelley Blue Book's only mention of the cargo room is to call it "acceptable."
