Car reviews - Subaru - Impreza - RV 5-dr hatch
20 Feb 2002
THE rear seatback can fold to increase luggage volume from 356 litres to 1266 litres - or in terms of load length, 910mm increasing to 1396mm. Minimum floor width is 939mm, rising to a maximum of 1333mm. Height from the floor to the removable parcel shelf measures 498mm, increasing to 784mm at the roofline (at the top of the hatch opening). While the seatbacks have a 60/40 split, the seat base flips up as one piece. Two child seat anchorage points are placed at the rear tailgate, cutting into luggage space when used, and one is placed in the roof - restricting rear visibility when employed. There is a shopping bag hook and retractable luggage blind included, however there is no full size spare wheel (a temporary one is provided), no luggage tie-down hooks and no power outlet to make this a bona fide "RV" (recreational vehicle).
