If WanderingEng combined his Subaru with his love for the outdoors.

Ha! No rally car, though. house, I have an Impreza five door. It's red, and I like it.

Rad! Fellow Impreza hatch driver here, '15 with Eyesight. Really wanted a Crosstrek but figured I could squeeze more bells and whistles into an Impreza. Someday!

Mines a '16 with Eyesight! I sometimes feel like the adaptive cruise control is a little dim when it does things like accelerate at a somewhat distant slower car only to slow rapidly once that distance has closed, but I still love it. When my speed is close to the car ahead of me, it really works well.

You have the push button start then, too? I really like that. It seems simple, but it's nice.

I think it was seeing Crosstreks that turned me on to Subaru (along with Google searches for "smallest cars with AWD"). They look great, but I like small cars and couldn't justify the higher cost or lower gas mileage.

Oh what up, week old convo? Yeah I really wanted a Crosstrek but at my budget it would've meant foregoing Eyesight to get one, so I went with the Impreza for the bells and whistles. And yeah mine will accelerate in weird situations too, like if I'm coming to a red light and the car I'm following changes lanes. It definitely takes some practice to adapt it to city driving.

Push button start and automatic unlocking is amazing; I feel like a peasant when I drive my wife's car and have to PRESS THE UNLOCK BUTTON and actually INSERT AND TURN A KEY.
