2013 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Limited PZEV 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


I traded in my VW Jetta sedan a month ago for the Impreza hatchback.
As the salesperson informed me during the "I'm still looking" phase, people buy Subarus for the "waist down" performance, as they lack many of the luxuries that other car makers add as perks.
Having said that, the leather is good quality, the car handles very well (can't wait to get it in the snow!), and it's got a decent backseat and storage for the daily haul.
Bluetooth and USB are decent, but stereo very generic.
Controls are simple.
Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is interesting...takes some getting used to. One month in, and I'm a happy customer!

Best Features

Affordable AWD, decent MPG, excellent reliability & safety ratings, all-weather floor mats and seatback protector, heated seats, color (marine blue pearl)

Worst Features

stereo and speakers below expectations (single CD, speakers sound tinny), no cabin-based hatch release
