How to Pack Your Subaru Impreza Sedan
When they look at a Subaru Impreza for sale, Perth drivers may be surprised by the amount of boot space available. Many people opt for the wagon variant to boost their cargo space even further. However, with clever cargo management, it’s possible to fit an astonishing amount of stuff into an Impreza sedan boot. Let’s take a look at a few clever tips and tricks that you can use when you next pack your Impreza for a trip.offering.
Weight is Paramount:
Remember you are always in control of what is packed and how it’s packed in your car. The most important thing to bear in mind is the weight that you want to carry. Every vehicle has a recommended load capacity, and this includes passengers. An overloaded car will use far more fuel, and the handling characteristics will also be compromised. This will make the car unsafe and could lead to you being pulled over by the Police.
Bigger Stuff Goes in First:
Any bigger and heavier items should be loaded into the boot first and placed in the middle of the cargo space. This will ensure that the weight is evenly distributed to keep the vehicle stable when driving and especially when cornering. Any lighter items should be packed on top, and softer items could be packed around the heavier stuff.
Loose Cargo is Dangerous:
Many people fill their cars with loose items with little regard for their safety. If an accident occurs all of those items will become projectiles that will fly around inside the cabin until they hit someone. Every piece of cargo possible should be secured in a cubby or tied down. If you’re driving with the rear seats down for more cargo space or have a wagon fit a cargo barrier for extra protection.
Rear Visibility is Vital:
Another common practice for those going on a trip is to pile their cargo high and obscure their rear vision. This is very dangerous for a couple of good reasons. Firstly you will not be able to see what is going on around you and this will make you and your passengers less safe. Secondly, the piled up cargo can easily shift when driving and in an accident, it could cause injury to the vehicle occupants.
