2007 Subaru Impreza Wagon Outback Sport Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I live in Colorado and do a lot of mountain driving in the snow. There was nowhere I couldn't get to in the Impreza wagon. Even with all season radials, I had better handling in snow and ice than many vehicles with snow tires. The ride is smooth and acceleration is adequate most of the time. The 4 speed auto lacks power when climbing steeper mountain hills and downshifts too frequently to maintain speed. Flat land driving is excellent. The handling in all conditions exceeds any car I've driven before (86 Sentra, 90 Accord, 93 Infiniti G, 96 Infiniti G and 03 Altima). Overall this car offers a good mix of performance and mpg. If you're looking for true sport handling, get the WRX.


Favorite Features

The all wheel drive is awesome. It takes away a couple mpg, but it's well worth the trade-off. The MP3 jack is nice in the Outback Sport. Reliability is second to none. 22k miles and no more than the regular scheduled maintenance.


Suggested Improvements

About 25 more horse power to be more effective for mountain driving would be the best improvement. Beyond that, it's just some minor things: only has auto down window for drivers side (needs up and down for passenger and driver). The upgraded stereo is not close the level of most manufacturers.

2007 Subaru Impreza Wagon WRX 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I have had an 02, 05, and an 05 STI, and the 07 is the best. STI ride is punishing, this provides a good balance. good daily driver, with the new 2.5L engine, VVT, and lower RPM torque and HP, feels faster than previous years, and don't have to wind up the motor for the power at low ends. mpg- with a stick, you can coast, i average 24-25 mpg combined.


Favorite Features

Sharpest seats of any year WRX, new engine, painted calipers are eye catching, wagon makes it handy. More aggressive bold style than the 08-09


Suggested Improvements

WRX emblem on grille and seatbacks, (will be on new 2009, i see), cooler exhaust note, more room in back seat.

2007 Subaru Impreza Wagon 2.5 i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love my 2007 Impreza 2.5i Wagon with the 5 speed. It is a blast to drive. With 60 plus cu. ft. of cargo space and all wheel drive standard it was a smart choice.


Favorite Features

Sporty look, feel and ride. All wheel drive. Price. Resale value. Safety. Build quality both inside and out. The overall personality of the car. Very strong brakes.


Suggested Improvements

Road noise, the car is pretty loud at high rpm. The ride can sometimes be rough

2007 Subaru Impreza Wagon 2.5 i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love this car very much. It's effortless to drive and it's a champ through any weather or road conditions. I never have any second thought of taking it off the pavement to have a little fun. The whole package is great too. You get performance with serious versatility. More than a few times I've had to throw a ton of cargo in the back (over 30 large soccer bags or two bmx bicycles) and to my surprise there was still room to spare. Though it is not quite as inspiring as its more powerful brethren nor as fast, you will still feel just as confident. If you're looking for a car that's not too overwhelming but will still give you a thrill this will certainly do the trick


Favorite Features

There is simply no replacement for the AWD, it makes the car. The feel of the car is incredible. It's very driver oriented, as if you are a part of the car.


Suggested Improvements

Stock stereo: is crap (blunt but true) I replaced it immediately. Auto trans: Four gears isn't enough. You want more out of it but it can't give it. It's not bad, they work great, but 5 would be magical.

2007 Subaru Impreza Wagon WRX 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I was looking for a fun car that is unique and practical. The WRX Wagon is fun, unique, and practical for sure. The power is enough for the street and having fun at a track. The all wheel drive can make a bad driver look good :o) (i appreciate that) It is reliable and robust. Designed from rally roots, it's a beast on dirt roads too. Being a sports car, Subaru did not add sound dampening, which means if you are on a tar and gravel road, you will hear it, but this reduction in weight is a plus overall.


Favorite Features

The hatch, the turbo, the all wheel drive, and the roof rack. I am currently fixing up a house, and have often loaded the back with large items (doors, etc). The turbo makes driving fun again. The all wheel drive comes in handy in rain or snow. I bike a lot, so I needed a roof rack too.


Suggested Improvements

The stock stereo leaves much to be desired. I think they should replace it with something that matches the rest of the car's performance.
