2000 Subaru Impreza

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.
