Cargo

The Impreza hatchback has 19 cubic feet of cargo room behind the backseat, which is more than the four-door GTI (14.7) but less than the Vibe (20.1). The cargo floor isn't especially deep, as a good 5 inches or so is taken up by the temporary spare tire located below it.

Folding down the hatchback's 60/40-split backseat expands the cargo area to 44.4 cubic feet. The seatbacks are level with the cargo floor, so long items lay flat.
