My father test drove one about 2 weeks ago and loved it. The car seemed pretty peppy even with the CVT with 4 and 1/2 people in the car. (One rather large guy haha) The test vehicle at the dealership had 5k miles on it and was still getting around 30mpg which I was impressed with.
The car seemed quieter and the rear legroom, where I was sitting, was much better than my current 06 wrx. Also for an extra 500 dollars the all weather package is worth it and I think that is an excellent price. They did a really nice job with the new impreza and I like the styling as well.
