2012 Subaru Impreza: All We Need Now Is Gear

September 24, 2012

2012 Subaru Impreza

The Impreza Sport hatchback comes standard with roof rails. And as you can see, they're the real deal, with solid construction and a raised profile for clearance. It certainly seems fitting to have them on this Subie. But they're pretty prominent looking, almost to the point where our Impreza seems less than whole if it doesn't have recreational gear secured to its roof.

Naturally, Subaru offers all the accessories to make this happen, including the cross rails, bike adapters, kayak adapters and even a cargo carrier. Maybe we should make Mike Monticello's mountain bike a permanent fixture.
