2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I traded my VW Golf for the Impreza 2.5i sedan. I wanted the WRX but can't swing the cash. For the money, the Impreza 2.5i is outstanding. You can really feel the 170 HP because the car is so light. The boxer engine shifts smooth as silk. The AWD is also excellent. This car handles very well for its class and feels super solid when driving. it really is a blast to drive. I have no trouble getting on the gas at 60mph to blow by someone on the highway, the torque and HP are great. I ask for the power and it's there! You really couldn't get a better car for the money.
Boxer engine, 170hp, AWD, handling, front seats, torque. The rear end looks really good too.
The stereo and speakers are pretty bad, I had to have an aftermarket stereo put in, speakers are next to go in.
