Vehicle2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThis car is light years ahead of the previous generation Impreza. It looks better, has a much nicer interior, has more room for both passengers and cargo, and handles much better. The 2nd generation CVT is much smoother and more efficient than the old 4 speed automatic transmission it replaces. I just drove it about 60 miles in a snow storm, and even with the lower resistance tires Subaru has switched to, it handled great. I have been averaging 31 MPG in mixed driving which is right where the EPA says it should be. I was able to coax 35 MPG out of my last tank of gas by driving the car more like you would a Prius i.e., easing up on the gas pedal while cruising letting the CVT do its thing.
Best FeaturesAwd, bluetooth, heated seats/mirrors.
Worst FeaturesNot as quiet as some other cars in the same class ( Chevy Cruze for one ). Stop/start technology to save gas while in city traffic. Possibly a diesel engine option to get even better gas mileage.
