2012 Subaru Impreza Long-Term Road Test


2012 Subaru Impreza: Fuel Economy Update for May

June 3, 2013

2012 Subaru Impreza

May was the final month in the long-term test of our 2012 Subaru Impreza. We did not have the Impreza but a week last month before it returned to Subaru. It was enough time to set one record, however.

We recorded our worst single fill-up, at 17.4 mpg, in May. We should note, though, that this was not from a full tank of fuel. During our test we never quite reached the claimed highway returns of 36 mpg. Our best was a repeatable 31 mpg. And so we bid the Impreza farewell. Stay tuned for the wrap up.

Worst Fill MPG: 17.4
Best Fill MPG: 31.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 25.9
EPA MPG Rating (City/Highway/Combined): 27/36/30
Best Range: 437.5 miles
Current Odometer: 18,674
