2012 Subaru Impreza: Floor Mat Retention Done Right

December 04, 2012


I've spent a lot of time over the last five days hauling myself and my junk in and out of the Impreza during L.A.'s once-annual, multi-day rain event. I'm glad it's over. Not once during this episode did I have trouble with the Impreza's driver's-side floormat bunching up under the pedals.

Credit for this goes not to my careful entry and exit, but rather to the Impreza's overbuilt, stunningly effective floor mat hooks. These steel hooks locate the driver's side mat with vice-like inflexibility allowing me to drag my feet across the mat as lazily as I please.

It's not a little thing, either. Just ask Toyota.
