2012 Subaru Impreza: Great Seat

Today I'm here to pour praise on the driver's seat of our long-term Subaru Impreza. It is a fantastically comfortable place to spend time. Not too firm, which has become a trend, and not too soft, which is the way too many seats used to be.

I'm 5' 11" tall and 185 lbs, which means I'm of fairly average size, and the Impreza's seat is sized and shaped perfectly for my frame. Too many seats today feel too small or too large, but the Subie's bottom cushion is just the right length and width as is its seatback.  

I also like the fact that it's height adjustable, which combines with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel with plenty of range, to create a perfect driving position. 

The more I drive this car, the more obvious it becomes that it is designed, engineered and tuned by people that like to drive.
