It is behind a paywall.

So I'll ask again, someone at CR got 35mpg in a TL, so that means the Impreza only gets 30?
Hmm. Average between 50 and 55, not 70 per Zeeper...

It's not just the TL. All of the other cars that got the same highway mpg by Consumer Reports' drivers came in at 30 +/- 2 on the EPA highway test, with the Legacy the only one above 31.

That makes the 36 of the CVT Impreza (still interesting how many hyenas with manual transmissions are commenting on this thread) the hugely overoptimistic outlier.
