2012 Subaru Impreza: LATCH Anchors

Our 2012 Subaru Impreza was in service a mere day before I went searching for the child safety seat LATCH anchors. That's the sort of thing that happens when you're a parent with kids that require such apparatus. The LATCH points are very easy to locate, two in each outer position of the rear seats.

When it comes to these tethers there are a few approaches. Some manufacturers leave them in plain sight. Others tuck them out of sight between the seat base and back, which are usually difficult to access. Subaru does things a little differently...

Subaru hides them behind velcro-lined straps. They are easily accessed once the flap is open. And if looks matter to you, then simply reattach the flap once the child seat straps are secured. This style offers the best of both worlds, functionality and form. Of the three most prevalent LATCH options around, it is my favorite.
