There are several things that make the new Impreza have 30% better mpg than previous Imprezas, but the number one thing is the CVT; so how does it have "little to no mileage benefit"?

Subaru's Lineartronic CVT has proved to be reliable.

As for sucking to drive....well....that is preference. I think they are fine.
