I agree with your first sentence here. However, I came from the opposite direction. I already had a car that was rated at 36 mpg highway EPA, but with a new extended commute wanted a replacement since my Corolla had over 200k miles on it. Unfortunately the Impreza gets nowhere near the highway mpg that the Corolla gets (currently about 8 mpg less with the same commute), even though they are rated the same.
