It will be interesting to see some of the data from Crosstrek owners. I believe they will have the same experience as some do with the Impreza. I admit my MPG is bad due to my very short drives and heavy foot, but driven the same way over the same roads my 10 Outback it will get the same or in some cases better fuel economy. That is with a larger engine and hundreds of pounds of more mass to move. I still think the 2.0 could be a little undersized even for the Impreza making work hard than let say my OB has to.
