Didn't study the car but everything looks the same. Might have had slightly smoked rear lights but I'd have to look at it next to another hatch.

Put on the wrx wheels and mounted new Blizzak WS-90's.





Really loving the sport. Perfect for crappy winters and driving to work most days. When it's nice or I want to be fast I'll just drive the M240. lol

If it had a bigger more powerful engine I donít think it would get the same fuel economy. Look at the wrx fuel economy vs the Impreza. Itís 21 city 27 hwy. My car gets consistently 31 city and 36-39 hwy. for a daily driver Iíd much rather take the higher gas mileage. If I want fun Iíll hop on my motorcycle

I agree, I love it as a daily driver. It has some nice features plus awd. Even if it had 200 hp I'd be driving it the same exact way so I'll take the better mpg's.

i just picked up my 19' a week and a half ago with 7 miles on it.
its my 7th subaru (i have 2 others at home -- 98 impreza obs & 01 impreza obs).

my first impression of driving it was that the clutch took some getting used to (i'm used to actually having to DRIVE the car since every car i own is a stick, and the clutch is alot softer IMO compared to older models).

also - location of everything is relatively the same as older models (i.e. gas door for the hatch is the trunk button on a GC, GF wiper controls are the same, coin tray location is the same on GC/GD/GF and the GK, etc).

one of the things i do NOT like is the minimal amount of gauges. Not having a literal temp gauge irks me a bit.

i do however like the interior accent trims.

The upper screen on the dash can be customized to change out temp and such.

Topmost screen is customized via your Set/Info buttons on your steering wheel at the bottom left. Your car has to be parked.

Dang, Base model gets screwed at every turn. I don't believe in them, so I never know what they're lacking.

Anyone else have issues with door locks? My front driver side lock does not always respond to fob, only way to unlock is to use emergency key or unlock by hand. Lock not responsive to passenger side lock mechanism. Something else, the door will lock itself, I leave my car unlocked in the garage at night, come morning the driver said door is locked. Been to service 6 times, each time no replication of action observed.

If you buy a base then you don't get all of those fancy bells and whistles bro.
