2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Race-car drivers can ignore this. Smart, safe drivers should get the Legacy. My Buick skid on a wet road and crashed badly. Wanted Subaru Legacy for AWD and safety features, but decided to save money and get Impreza. AWD is great. No one regrets buying Legacy. Gas mileage is better in small car, but Legacy is the better car.
AWD, side air bag, good breaks, good crash-test rating. The combination of fuel-efficient 4-cylinder with really good horse-power. tight curves are great.
My car insurance thinks this car is a race car (probably got my 2.5 confused with the WRX model) but I can't even go 70mph in it without car rocking from wind! Car needs to be lower to the ground maybe to make it "heavier"? May not be best idea to get COMPACT car from an *SUV* dealer.
