My kids are 3 and almost 6. There's plenty of room in the back for them & my wife wasn't cramped in the front passenger seat. We went grocery shopping on Sunday and had no problems fitting all the bags in the trunk. So for every day driving it should be fine. If your family is closer to 6' it might seem cramped tho.
However, this car won't cut it for vacation. I recall in December we flew to Florida. For the four us, we had 3 suitcases, 1 duffle, and a double stroller (last time we needed it!!) - and carry ons. These items just fit in our Forester's trunk, but they would not all fit in the Impreza. I think the Impreza is fine to go away for a weekend, but no longer than that. Oh, and I have the wagon - on the sedan I saw in the showroom, the trunk was very small too.
Still, IMHO you really can't get a safer small car, and the AWD on the snow/rain makes it unbeatable.
