This year's model of the Subaru Impreza brings more room, comfort, and style.
After review, we find that the car's chassis can handle even the toughest environments.
The features included in the Premium package really take things up a notch. They were varied and important enough to give us what we need- without a huge price increase.
The optional moonroof is wicked cool and adds to the Impreza's improved exterior design.
Safety features are numerous and adequate on the 2012 Subaru Impreza Premium package. The vehicle was named a "Top Safety Pick" by the IIHS.
The Subaru's standard All-Wheel drive is appreciated in colder climates and under harsh conditions.
The improved fuel economy is a great feature. One of the drawbacks to previous Impreza models was their ability to guzzle gas. The new 2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i 4-Door Sedan gets 36 mpg on the highway- a 38 percent increase from last year's model.
The roominess of the interior in this trim is great. A couple inches of added-on space in the backseat really make a difference.
Some tacky interior features from the previous generation Impreza made their way into the 2.0i Premium 4-Door Sedan version, including some cheap plastics and an outdated-looking navigation system.
Despite the upgrades the Premium Impreza receives, the sound system still leaves something to be desired-quality.
The Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium 4-Door Sedan may have an improved, more aesthetically pleasing exterior, but it's still a far cry from what we would call "sleek." It may be a family car, but it could still use some extra styling tweaks.
We're not fans of the loss of power and torque on this year's vehicle. Despite the car's lighter body, we don't really think the new "improvements" have made it that much faster.
