2000 Subaru Impreza Overview

A compact car isn't necessarily meant to be fun. Tell that to Subaru who introduced a rally-inspired model to its Subaru Impreza lineup this year. Already available in an L sedan and coupe and Outback Sport, featuring a 2.2-liter, 142-hp H4 engine, the 2000 Impreza screams onto the road with a new RS coupe and sedan, powered by a 2.5-liter, 165-hp H4. Both L and RS come with choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto tran, but the new RS models have a sports suspension, a limited slip differential, ground effects, a rear spoiler, and a large hood scoop. Taking cues from Subaru's World Rally Championship winning cars, the 2003 Impreza RS sedan and coupe look and act the part of a street racer.
There were few changes to the rest of the lineup. The 2000 Impreza remains the only car in its class featuring full-time AWD, providing surefooted performance in any road or weather condition. The L trims are fairly basic, with power features, tilt steering, and dual front airbags. ABS brakes are not offered. The new RS is loaded with leather trim, cruise control, a sunroof, ABS brakes, and foglights. A CD player and leather seats are optional. The Outback Sport is the wagon version of the Impreza, offering up to 64 cubic feet of cargo room with the seats folded down, a feature not available in the sedans or coupes. It's built for more rugged use, offering splash guards, a roof rack, and a stiffer suspension.
The new 2000 Impreza RS sedan and coupe are big hits with drivers looking for a little zip to their morning commute. The entire Impreza lineup is fun to drive and takes turns tightly and crisply. As always, the AWD performance is top-notch. Complaints mention the limited rear legroom, the bad location of the cupholders in front of the air vents, and the eternal desire for even more and more power.
