The 2013 Subaru Impreza is expected to be the highest-mileage gasoline all-wheel-drive vehicle in the U.S. market, reprising its 30-mpg EPA Combined rating and a highway rating of up to 36 mpg.
With the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), the 2013 Impreza sedan and hatchback get 27 mpg city, 36 highway, while are expected to earn EPA ratings of 27 city, 36 mpg highway, for a combined 30-mpg rating, a 30-percent improvement over last year’s figures. Manual numbers are somewhat lower, at 25/34 mpg. And that 36-mpg highway rating enables an impressive cruising range of up to 523 miles.
The Impreza is clean enough to earn the designation of Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle, or P-ZEV—the label for vehicles that follow California’s stricter emissions standards; and Subaru has decided to offer it in all 50 states, not just where it's required.
