Car reviews - Subaru - Impreza - RV 5-dr hatch
20 Feb 2002
THE off-road tone set up by the external appearance of Impreza RV is continued inside with the use of thick-pile light-grey cloth trim on the seats bordered with a darker tone of grey and light cloth inserts on the doors. The front seats are heavily bolstered and the driver's seat can be adjusted with Subaru's Super Seat Lifter ratchet device, which offers 50mm of movement. The driver's seat hip point is now out to 515mm, further improving the driving position. The front seatbelts have pretensioners and a load limiting device, and the top anchor point can be adjusted for height. Three-point seatbelts are provided for all seating positions - on the hatch, the belt can be disengaged from the lower anchor point when not required and allowed to retract into the rear corner of the roof. Head restraints are included for each occupant.
