Let Me Upgrade Ya!
**I was provided a 2017 Subaru Impreza to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.**
Hey Dolls! I’m back with another Subaru Fabulous experience! The last week I had the privilege to test drive the 2016 Subaru Impreza. This is my second time driving a Subaru and if you all recall last year when I has the 2015 Subaru Legacy I immediately fell in love. The moment that Prestige arrived to deliver the vehicle I was impressed with the 2017 body of the Impreza. Subaru continues to step their game up with their vehicles.
When I say Love at First Sight! I mean just that. As a mother of three its important for me to have a vehicle that is “Family-Friendly”. My oldest is over six feet so in the event that he decides to take a ride around town with us having enough leg room is a must!
The details of the 2017 Subaru Impreza where spot on! The Impeza exterior color was a Carbide Gray Metallic which at first sight looks like it could be more of a blue but as the sun hits it you can tell that its more of a gray. The inside interior gave me total RACE CAR VIBES! VROOM BABY! Where do I begin? The Black Cloth Sport inside is a bonus right down to the red stitch detail. I was impressed with how the stitching was strategically placed on the steering wheel. door panel, seats, and console. The red really makes the inside interior pop.
The Impreza definitely takes sedan to a new level! The fuel efficiency of the Impreza is a plush and I noted that we actually got 36 MPG on the highway which is a must living in the Atlanta area. Although I live on the outside perimeter of Atlanta everyone knows that you always have to take a highway drive to go shopping or attend events. Keeping in mind that’s in addition to basketball practice, gymnastics and chorus recitals.

The kids & I can definitely say that the ride for the past week was smooth. We attended several events but the most memorable one was the VIP Six Flags Justice League Metropolis ribbon cutting ceremony. The kids and I enjoyed our week test driving the Subaru Impreza!
