I could see getting the manual version. I can easily beat the epa rated city just png the whole time. Plus the boxer four sounds fantastic and I could put a little muffler on there and have some fun. The big bonus here is its awd, a hatch, and can tow 1500, and could easily average 30 mpg. Could replace my Prius and Ranger one day maybe if I get tired of the fleet of odd vehicles.

They used the Crosstreck because it outsells the Impreza almost 2 to 1.

Crosstrek 144,384 (up 31%)
Impreza 76,460 (down 11%)

At least in theory, Subaru could benefit a lot more from the HSD tech from Toyota, since it's already been fitted to longitudinally-engined applications too.

Looking into it more I don't think they even offer a hybrid option anymore.

You say brought back the PHEV. There was a prior one? What was the first year?

Not that I know of. I should have said they brought it back with a PHEV version.
