    Subaru Impreza — The all wheel drive hugs the road. I would have rather preffered the WRX mild turbo. The performance i can guess is going to be amazing, considdering the stock 2.5i has enough power to hit good speeds and accelleration. Fun car to drive. I just hate the Governer kicking in at 170!!!

    Pros: All wheel drive, Comfortable seats

    Cons: Weak bumpers

    I Liked My 2007 Subaru Impreza A Lot Better. — My 07 was a 5 sp. short shift kit 2.5i which hauled pretty much untouchable. This one is weak no power in my opinion.

    Pros: bigger, more luxury

    Cons: no power, looks girly

    I love this car. The Boxer engine sounds wonderful just on it own. I can put this car in and out of any corner with zero hesitation on how the car will preform. When I sat in this car for the 1st time. It was formed to tell you that it wants to be driven! This car wants a Driver to sit behind the wheel. I have the 5 speed manual. Best clutch I have ever felt over the years. There is a reason why people dont sell these cars. They just drive them off the car lot in till its time to trade it in for a new one.

    I am personally not a fan of hatchbacks. That is the only down side to this car and it is only because I prefer the sedan.
