2006 Subaru Impreza WRX 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
200hp+ cars nowadays are a dime for a dozen, but not many get it all in one package. The WRX Wagon is compact enough for city dwellers, yet it can swallow a couple extra pieces of luggage or that big-screen tv. Please try that with the new Civic Si. AWD for extra traction in rain or light snow. Roof-rack for a kayak or ski trip. It is no M5 or Corvette, but performance and handling are superb for the price. Can't find anything else like that for $25,000. Unless you are into brands, forget about that 325xi wagon and get the WRX. Then, put the money that you just save in a mutual fund account. One big drawback for young buyers is high insurance costs.
Favorite Features
Performance and handling ... fun to drive. That extra cargo space. Extremely excellent value.
Suggested Improvements
Bad gearbox. Manual-shift is not meant to be an everyday rush hour car. Interior trim and design could use some improvements. A slight turbo-lag. It is no Toyota or Lexus, road and engine noises are pretty noticeable. No key entry in passenger side door?
