The modern incarnation of the Impreza is like a mid 20's man who has calmed down from all the partying in the teenager years. It still packs a punch when it needs to be has relaxed quite a bit and ready to starts a family. This is exactly what the Impreza now is, a 5 door family hatchback. Of course it hasn't forgotten its 4 wheel drive legacy si it can be the right package for those who want a Focus style car but need it to handle harsh weather and rough terrain.
Lease a Subaru Impreza if you want 4x4 but not a crossover. This desire is very limiting as you would normally need to spend a bit extra for Audi's quattro for example. The Impreza is up there with the best of them in terms of value for money for what it offers - a 4x4 family saloon - however if a nice and normal saloon is what you need this isn't the lease for you.
To conclude, this Impreza may not be what you were looking for but it is certainly an alternative to the family hatchback norm. It has decent economy and fantastic grip, it's just a shame they haven't made a souped-up version.
