For such a small car with NA 170hp engine the economy is rather poor ~24mpg. 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 a car of that size, the fuel economy is dismal. I get about 19 in the city, which is where most of my driving is done. That is marginally better than any SUV. see full Subaru Impreza / Outback Sport review
