Between 2014 and 2018, Subaru sold its Impreza 1.6i RC model to bring four wheel drive traction within the affordable reach of family buyers who neither wanted or needed any kind of SUV. It's a conventional Focus-sized family hatch with very unconventional underpinnings, the Symmetrical AWD system paired to a uniquely-configured 1.6-litre petrol Boxer engine. Not a package likely to suit everyone but perfect perhaps for those in search of something that's just that little bit different in this segment.
This car's buying proposition will depend on your perspective. Before it arrived, those wanting or needing all-wheel drive in a family-sized car and not able to spend serious money on the cheapest 4WD Crossovers or compact SUVs were limited to the crudity of clunky off roaders from budget brands. This Subaru is a much more palatable option, priced directly against mainstream Focus-sized family hatches but, with 4WD and a lot more equipment included, offering much more as part of the deal.
So what if it's a non-conformist choice with a cabin that fights the fashionable trends and a distinctive Boxer engine spinning away beneath the bonnet? What matters is that ultimately, there's nothing else quite like it.
