2012 Subaru Impreza: Location, Location...
June 30, 2012
Granted, I don't often (okay, almost never) ride in the back of our test cars. But that doesn't mean I don't feel for the folks who sit back there. As such, I appreciate small cars that offer fairly comfortable rear quarters.
The Impreza does it right with a roomy and supportive rear seat. Furthermore, the fold-down center armrest is perfectly located, nearly matching the height and angle of the door armrests. If you've ever flipped one of these down only to discover it's annoyingly too low to be comfortable, you'll also appreciate this thoughtful design.
