2012 Subaru Impreza: Full Tilt

September 10, 2012

2012 Subaru Impreza

Subaru replaced the last-generation Impreza's active front head restraints with these tilt-adjustable models in the new car. You choose one of three angles. This actually comes in handy on a long-trip: mid or full-forward position when you're feeling upright and alert, or regular 90-degree when you need to relax, recline the seat a notch or two and stretch out.

In press material for the new Impreza, Subaru says that new higher-strength seat frames offer improved protection against whiplash, allowing the use of the new, non-active tilt design. Hopefully we never find out first-hand the wisdom of this decision.
