Overall the Imprezza 5 door has some nice points. It handles well and seems to be mechanically sound. However, although it does get good fuel economy, even with a very soft pedal, the onboard computer says I get about 24 city, 35 straight hwy, and 26 combined, a little less than the 27/36 & 30 combined the sticker shows. Not including that the onboard computer always shows 1 or 2 MPG higher than what I calculate at fillups. My main complaint is the very LOW ground clearance and lack of standard roof rails. My last car was an AWD Pontiac Vibe. Unfortunately it got crushed by a tree during hurricane sandy, but it had 8.1" of ground clearance compared to the 5.7" of the imprezza, not good for fairly deep snow. Prepare to take driveway and parking lot entrances slowly, as the front tends to scrape the steeper ones. The center armrest design also leaves alot to be desired. I had to take what was in stock, which was slim pickings on Long Island NY after the hurricane, as I had been without a car for 5 weeks. If I could do it again, I wouldnt go with the imprezza hatchback, I would wait and go with the Subaru crostrek, it's the imprezza, with larger 17" wheels, SUV like body molding, 8.7" of ground clearance, and roof rails for slightly more money.
