The 2017 Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan | Cruising around Washington D.C.

Cruising around Washington D.C. in the 2017 Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan. Read my full review plus take a virtual tour of the new 2017 Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan.

The 2017 Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan

Living in the Washington D.C. area means the commute to many delicious destinations is only but a few minutes of a drive. I took the 2017 Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan on a drive for a week and absolutely loved the power and torque it has in this sedan. Taking a quick hop on the highway really lets this baby open up and you can play with the stick shift. On the first night out with this beautiful ride, I took Shelly (I call the 2017 Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan Shelly) on a ride.

We dined on some delicious food at the Cheesecake Factory and even got to try the Celebration Cheesecake they had for a limited time. To top that off I got to grab this baby for half off, yay to even more delicious savings. I can say that this sweet ride looks even sexier as the sun is setting.

Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan Fuel Economy

After having such a filling meal the night before, Esuun and I took a trip to the gym to work off the delicious food and cheesecake we had the night before. It’s very important to get that weekly workout in to keep your body healthy. I’m personally a gym rat so you can probably catch me at the gym as much as 4 times a week.

The Fuel economy with manual transmission gives you (hwy/city): 31/23 MPG, so I was able to get around town and drive out of town using little gas. As a mom of four on a shoestring budget, this really helped with my weekly fuel bill.

Here are some quick stats about the car below, for a growing family of five I found the seating to be a little tight since we still have a booster seat for Esuun. If the booster seat wasn’t taking up so much space I think the kids would have fit a lot better in the back. There was ample leg room for the front seats and even a decent amount for my growing 5’11-year-old.

Spacious Interior in the Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan

There was a huge trunk space that I was honestly very shocked to have since from the outside it doesn’t look very big. To my surprise when I popped the trunk it went back pretty far, with enough space from a stroller, a cooler and bags to fit in. Which is actually perfect for my family since we like to travel and tend to take our whole house with us when we leave for a day or two.

2017 Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan Review

I really like having this 2017 Subaru Impreza iSport Sedan, it’s a great sleek car you drive around town to get errands done during the day. My kids really liked the interior and said it was very comfortable and stylish, they were happy to not have the regular cotton seats we have in our minivan.

My favorite part of driving this car though was taking it on the highway and really letting it open up. It’s not often I am able to have fun like this but I had a lot of fun feeling the torque and even making the kids giggle.

We had a subaru impreza wagon for a decade before a wreck. It was such a great car! Now that our kids are older a sedan is just what we need.

Thank you so much for including the stats on the car. I've read a lot of car review recently, but they never include the stats and I love knowing whats under the hood. That trunk capacity is incredible for the size of the car.

I have never owned a Subaru but I have always heard great things about them, especially their safety features! Looks like such a great car, thanks for sharing!

This is the kind of car that I look for when renting one. I like something that is easy to drive and park. Something that is comfortable as well. It's usually just me and maybe one friend, so the whole space thing is less of an issue for me.
