2009 Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 265hp 2.5L H4
5-speed manual AWD
Not really dislike, I didnt expect civic like mpg. Around town mileage suffers, but on the highways the car cruises quite easily. You can expect ~25mpg on average combined (with no led food). Impressive for the hp and AWD. see full Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport review
2010 4dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.5L H4

Really crappy, especially for a 2.5L 4 cylinder engine. 22 MPG average. 18 city, 27 highway is what I got. see full Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport review

low fuel economy because of AWD components see full Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport review

Pathetic for a compact sedan at <28 mpg highway. The AWD system must be a huge fuel sink. see full Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport review

For such a small car with NA 170hp engine the economy is rather poor ~24mpg. see full Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport review
