This one looks solid on paper. Subaru's Impreza Sport 5-door offers utility, economy and all-wheel drive for a starting price of $22,495. But if you can live without options, you can get the base model of the Impreza for just $18,895.

Our test car came with a CVT transmission, but you can opt for a five-speed manual.

GF just put a deposit down on the car in the pic - 5-dr, Sport, manual, Island Blue, no moonroof. Locating such a beast has been darn near impossible. Exactly zero within 200 mi radius, but dealer says there are 2 scheduled for build, so apparently she's getting one of those.

Her being 5' on a good day, finding something that fit well was hard for her. This was the only thing she drove that she felt totally comfortable in.

Cool--well, cool on ordering one, but bummer about the wait. I really enjoyed my time with the car.

That side skirt really cleans up the lines. I like this latest gen of Impreza.

It's the closest I've seen to the 93-07 run of wagons in terms of seating position and ergonomics yet. The '12 was close, but there's a lot of refinement in this new platform (especially on the XV).

That gen Impreza is the new "global" crap. It's basically a forester, a levorg (or whatever it's called), a legacy, blah, blah, blah.

The previous gen Impreza had like, ZERO ground clearance. It's why I went with the crosstrek. The suspension on anything but the crosstrek looks like it went down a pothole infested road on blown out shocks everyday for the last fifteen years.

I know the infotainment center has severely upgraded though. My 2017's console sucks asspipe.
