Highest safety rating from Consumer Reports; I added front collision avoidance (EyeSight is Subaru name.) Car is only a week old; limited driving but so far so good. I did a lot of research, wanted to downsize from a Jetta station wagon (not diesel), wanted hatchback & moonroof. Surprisingly limited choices for a short elderly driver.
Test drove the Impreza wagon (base model). Two items that didn't impress me were the lack of electric drivers seat controls for adjustment, and the wind noise when driving on the highway. With the years I've owned and driven the Subaru models there would be NO wind noice in ANY model. Today's technology and engineering should have had a "fix" for this a LONG time ago.
