Fully Functional And Fun Car — I love being able to pack up the car and go camping. With the subaru I can fold all the seats down and i have ample room for what i bring. I have also fit six people in this car with a cooler. With the rack attachments its ideal for my kayak and any other toys i want to put up there.

Pros: Great fuel economy, Enough room for what i do, Great stock sound system with the stock kicker, Great top end

Cons: Acceleration,

I'm Really Surprised More People Don't Own These. —

I HAD to buy a 4WD to get up our hill. Sadly had to get rid of my Mustang. Bought the Impreza because it wasn't as "boxy" as the other small SUVs. Since it was based on the car it was zippy, cornered good, and was fun to drive. Some of the other SUVs were just so boxy and boring! Had it for 2 years now and we love it. In fact, my wife took it over because she loves it so much. Amazing what you can fit in it. It's not as big as the SUVs, but you can put the seats down and get a lot in there. We have had four people and luggage/coolers in the car for long weekend several times with no issues. The AWD goes anywhere. The AWD actually helps the cornering and it is fun but still practical. Subaru needs help with the electronics but they are ok (not great, but ok). My wife has her ipod connected and loves the touch screen, but otherwise the controls are not the most intuitive. Gas mileage changes by .3 (Why?) so your mileage (on the dash) is ALWAYS divisible by 3. (who thought of that?) Could not get a stick unless you get a WRX model or real basic model :-( Had to get the CVT but at least the paddle shifters help.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Goes anywhere.  Ok mileage.  Very practical yet fun to drive.

Cons: Subaru needs help with electronics and audio.   Very few gauges on dash - tach, speedo, and gas.

Overall:

All Purpose Small Car — Reliable. Good function and performance. Step up from 2WD economy vehicles of same class. Hatchback to cargo area with fold down seats make loading and unloading easy. Great handling on country roads and wet weather. I hope this car lasts like my other Subaru models, which have 135K to 235K miles.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling in poor weather. Accelerates quickly and brakes well when needed. Automatic transmission with paddle shifters is smooth and effortless. Decent gas mileage. Comfortable front and rear seats.

Cons: Wish I had a manual transmission. Paint seems to be thin and inferior to that on older model Subaru vehicles that I have owned.

I enjoy driving this car. I test drove the Mazda 3 and chose the the Impreza because it had more comfortable back seating. Read More

My first impression is that all trims of the imprezas are slow. I test drove the base models all the way up to the limited models. An impreza might not be such a good choice in a critical driving situ... Read More
