I bought my CVT premium hatchback in December.
This is my 4th Subaru impreza but first new car.
The best thing about it is the mileage.
At first my average MPG seemed low but then I started looking at the instantaneous MPG readout and adjusting my driving style to maximise fuel efficiency.
Now at around 5,000 miles I am getting almost EXACTLY the MPG estimated by Subaru, 28 around town, 30 mixed and 36 highway (actually I did get 38 a few time on a long 100 mile drive).
The other great thing is the leg room in the rear.
I had to drive a rental Ford Fous for a week and my son complained that he had LESS room in the back than in the Subau.
Not sure he's right...but still.
