You don't need a convertible to feel the wind blowing through your hair. Rolling down the windows and putting back the sunroof on a 2012 Subaru Impreza will definitely do the trick.

  • Travis, your comments on the airy feeling in the Impreza are spot on!

    Nonetheless, I think that the Impreza is a winter car at heart. I could be a bit prejudiced at the moment, though; I just brushed 8" of snow off our Impreza, and was surprised to find that the windshield wiper well at the base of the windshield is designed for easy cleaning--it's dished so that snow (or, say, leaves in the fall) can't get trapped there.
  • @cherryfan: This "well" is not new. My '05 Outback has it. Subaru follows through with its devices for winter driving. My base model OB has embedded windshield heating strips to keep the wipers from freezing, heated front seats, heated side

    Well, then—serves me right to have owned 20th century Jeeps and Subarus for so long.

    Our 2012 Ford Focus, on the other hand, still has deep snow-trapping crevices at the windshield base. And the rear wiper lifts only slightly from the wind
  • The ginormous moonroof (or as I call it, the gun turret) on my Forester was one of the things that sold me on the car. Now, I've had moonroofs on all of my "grown up" cars but this one is different. Open it up, put the rear windows about halfway down and it's Poor, no, scratch that, Practical Man's Convertible Time.

    Seriously, I use it as a hair dryer in the spring and fall.
