2012 Subaru Impreza (continued)

Summary

2012 Subaru Impreza

This traditionally modest Subaru looks far less modest than any previous Subaru. With a cruising range of 523 miles and better fuel mileage than a Fiat 500, yet with all-wheel drive, the all-new 2012 Subaru Impreza is a value leader. It is more comfortable than expected and more glamorous by far, yet it still embodies all of the admired practicality that has made Subaru among the most owner-loyal brands anywhere.
