If you hammer the throttle a lot, do not expect great mpg numbers. This is common sense really, not something I dislike, just something to note. see full Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport review

4-speed automatic AWD
Expect 20-24 mpg depending on how you drive. One does not buy an AWD turbo Subaru with fuel economy in mind. These cars were meant to be driven in a spirited manner. Keep in mind vehicle is required to be used with premium fuel. see full Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport review
