2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0iL Review Behind your Wheel
2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L road be sure review
Opinions are split inside the Behind the Wheel office about the 2017 Subaru Impreza.
Podcast/Radio Show hosts Chad and Peter have the view the Impreza is certainly heavily let down because of the lack of power and the underperforming CVT.
Joel on the other hand has the opinion it is one of the best compact cars on the market. And so i have a tendency to agree (cant harm to side with the boss either).
But workplace nation-wide politics notwithstanding, I relished the experience in the hatch out after my second week of driving a car.
Following on from the A pair of.0i-S, was the Impreza A pair of.0i-L, obviously with the same serp and a few less benefits but just as impressive.
Sure the 2.0 litre motor is a touch underwhelming and slow-moving to accelerate, I really dont dispute that, even so it isnt God awful as well as being only a small drawback.
If you arent a lead foot and push sensibly, then you wont perhaps notice the Imprezas failings and will also be instead hailing its strong points.
What you do get is a really solid ride and that is quiet and reputable. The handling will be clean and suspension is usually soft and really ingests the humps together with bumps nicely.
And for instance I said at my previous review, any drive isnt everything when considering any the improvements towards the cabin interior design and sophisticated contoured dashboard design.
The standout will be the new touch screen as well as HUD interface and its trendy graphics and animated graphics, strong colours and broad spectrum of internet data display.
Small touches including superimposed volume or A/C control images over the principal screens ads to the next hi-tech feel.
Omitted from the top of the line model are hot and powered leather front seats, a sunroof, satellite navigation and most more importantly Subarus Vision Assist basic safety tech package.
If that can be done without these features then the $24,690 price tag is a reasonable one.
But dont trouble yourself as you do still find some good decent kit including:
- push button ignition
- auto start stop
- electric park your car brake
- rear view camera
- 17 alloy wheels
All to all, the Subaru Impreza is a motor vehicle I wouldnt mind obtaining in my garage irrespective of whether its the 2.0i-L or A pair of.0i-S. Consistently top notch build quality and upgraded modern technology its hard not to feel comfortable within this package.
