2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium PZEV 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Third Subaru I have owned.
Less power than my 2004 Impreza with no significant increase in miles per gallon (got 28 mpg on 2004 and getting 30 mpg on this).
There is a really stupid gague to let you know how to drive to get better mileage - shows I get good mileage going downhill and bad mileage going up hill.
Still not designed for a short people - sliding armrest helps but still about 2 inches too short.
I don't think the low profile is going to get me through a whole lot of deep snow.
I wouldn't have gone with this except for Consumer Reports high rating.
Wish I had gone with the Hyundai Elantra GT instead which is almost the same car dimension wise (interior and exterior).

Best Features

Steering wheel controls for radio

Worst Features

Make armrest so a short person can make use of it. Improve gas mileage.
