We recently got our hands on the 2017 Subaru Impreza and here are five things you need to know.
It's built on Subaru's new global platform.
This structure allows for a chassis that is much more rigid than the outgoing model which keeps the car flat through the turns and ups the fun quotient quite a bit.
You can still get a 5-speed manual transmission in everything but the premium and limited trimline.
For those two, only a continuously variable transmission is available.
It's been refined a bit, but still not as engaging as rowing your own.
The Starlink infotainment system needs an upgrade badly.
There isn't much functionality to it, but Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, so it's not a deal breaker.
The adaptive cruise control system can be set while traveling at slow speeds and the system remains engaged for a three count when the car comes to a complete stop.
It's great in stop and go traffic.
The Impreza beats much of the competition when it comes to utility.
Fold down the rear seats and there is 55 cubic feet of space which should be enough to haul your goodies home from Ikea.
There you have it, the five things you need to know about the 2017 Subaru Impreza.
