My first complaint about my 2017 Impreza Premium, 5 door. There is no button or lever inside to open the rear hatch. Which is stupid because on the sedan, the manual shows a lever to open the trunk on the floor next to the gas cover opener. However, on the 5-door, there is no lever there. According to the manual, there are only two ways to open the rear hatch:

1. Use the remote to unlock and manually open it from the outside.
2. Crawl in the back, remove some cover on the manual release lever and open it.

There should be something on the driver side to pop the rear door, but for some reason, it was left out of the 5-door model.

Can someone with a 5-door Standard, Sport and Limited models check theirs to see if a lever is present next to the gas cover release?

I just walked out to my 2017 Premium model and there is NO lever for the rear hatch, only the gas cover release lever on the floor near the door sill.

My Impreza has a number of reduced features compared to my 2016 Outback premium. Not complaining, just mentioning. It's got what I need.
