2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


On 2nd tank ,I got 32.2 mpg on a 230 mile trip. My old Honda Civic gets 37+ on the exact same trip and was originally rated at 36 mpg highway like the Impreza. I have no options on my hatcback as I read the weight of the total cruise control package decreases mpg by 22+miles per tank(over 1 mpg). Am puzzled by the car's loss of speed going down hills. I have to gas it to maintain speed where my other vehicles can coast,saving fuel. Strange. Car is good in snow.

to get accurate mpg readings it is important to completely fill the tank each time.It takes awhile to get all the air out of this car's tank.

Best Features

Hatchback. Seems well made. Handles well .

Worst Features

Eliminate that holdback going down hills.Most difficult windshield I ever saw to clean snow from. Shifter can be knocked into lower gear without using shift button.
