      Love my 2017 limited. Plenty of dead start, merging and passing power. The zero to sixty times of faster vehicles mean you get to break a little sooner as you approach gridlock on the freeways here in Seattle. I just put on a relaxing XM station and chill in comfort.

      I’m infuriated that Canada gets the Impreza Sport trim loaded like our limited version. Why in world would they do that to North America.

      Shame they didn't stick with the 17" wheels/tires from the limited on the Sport trim. 18" and those ridiculous 40 profile tires isn't practical at all. Plus, the 18" alloy wheel design is blah. Would have to spend $1200-$1500 after purchase just to fix that crap.

      The Sport-trim spoiler is sort of dated looking. I wish it was a trunk-lip spoiler instead. Other than the ugly tail lights, this car looks pretty good, in that classic sort of way. More & more modern cars are looking like clown cars, so this is rather refreshing really.

      A 5 speed manual on a 2017? WTF were they thinking!? That tranny belongs in the early 2000's.

      Naughtysauce I own the car and have the 5 speed manual hatch. It’s great but yeah it could use a 6th gear to keep the Rpms lower at highway speeds. It’s pretty gutless unless your at higher rpms so maybe it’s a safety thing?

      Just got mine Saturday! I had a 15 civic coupe lx (basic) and traded it in for this 17 Impreza sport fully loaded (except eyesight) and wow! I love it. It’s great for daily commute and it looks much better in person. Was debating between this or a 17 Corolla xse, but the AWD and great deal got me :) smooth ride for sure.

      If you had a choice between this new 2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Sport or the 2017 Toyota Corolla XSE. Which would you all choose? I know for a fact that the Impreza has AWD and a lil more expensive while the Corolla is just as reliable and with a affordable price. The problem I find is that the Impreza sport model should come with LEDs standard and not halogens.

      +Jonathan Marquise Also are you comparing this 2017 model to a 20 year old car? Seriously have you even driven a 2017 impreza. Its a totally different car than 20 years ago. I had a 2000 impreza. now I have a 2008 impreza. The 2008 impreza is a totally different ride. Much more modern and comfortable ride than the 2000 model. The 2017 one should be even better.

      The styling is okay, but it does resemble an older model Corolla quite a bit, which is unfortunate. Subaru has never been at the forefront of design though. The interior looks to be a massive improvement over previous models, but the rear seats could use some amenities.

      CVT is certainly disappointing, but only an 5 speed manual offering in 2017 is much more disappointing? Would make better use of the somewhat low hp numbers and improve highway mileage as well. Looks like they are guiding their customers to CVT to me.

      I don't think I have ever seen more Subarus in my life than in Pennsylvania, they are everywhere out there. My neighbor across the street might be one of Subaru's biggest customers, he and his family have four of them and over the last 15 years I have lost count of how many they have owned, they love those damn things.

      venom5809 I used to be a dodge fan and got myself a 2011 Dodge Charger. It was fast and fun but it had tons of issues, costed a ton of money and really I couldn’t justify spending 250 for gas 250 for insurance. I got rid of it and eventually decided to get a Subaru Impreza hatchback 2018 manual. Every car I’d owned except the dodge was manual and I missed it, while this car doesn’t have the power or torque the dodge has it has been reliable and costs only 230 a month with 90$ for insurance. I’m almost 25 so insurance should drop more. All I can say is it grips like none other, it sounds amazing with just a simple bolt on muffler delete and it really is fun to slide around the dirt and snow with them. They’re extremely hard to get stuck in the snow or mud, they tend to be reliable as long as you take care of it and since I’ve gotten it I’m not longer a dodge fan, I’ve liked Subaru for a while but after owning one I’m now a Subaru fan. Once my hatch is paid off I’m gunna find an older sti and mod the crap out of it and use it as my project car. It’s got such a smooth ride in it, it really does feel safe and practical mixed with fun :D

      Did you notice the center console hits your leg when driving. Did not feel like it had enough power on the highway.

      Member Zombies In reply to rrt08

      rrt08 I have the 5 speed manual hatch, I pass cars all the time on the highway, it’s not like Dodge Charger fast but it’s got enough power, the dodge weighs almost 2k pounds more as well with only 385 hp. I’m 6’3 and I don’t have any issues it’s extremely comfortable for me even in the back seats. It’s got okay power, I take mine up the mountains and get it sideways in the dirt and snow, it’s a really fun practical car. At least for me, my 2011 Dodge Charger had 420 hp but my Subaru is still more fun. There’s just something about the subject rumble and how the steering feels that really makes it great every time you drive it.
