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


Review

Very good car, More horsepower than any other $18k car. The AWD makes it awesome to drive. If you are more into luxuries rather than fun and performance, this is not your car.


Favorite Features

AWD, sleek design, rear tail lights.


Suggested Improvements

The radio is below average, better gas mileage, smoother gearbox, bigger and better tail pipe on the 2.5i model.

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


Review

Overall I have been very satisfied with this car. It handles great, the AWD grips the road very well, decent amount of power, and fun to drive. But of course this isn't a luxury car. The interior seems to be well assembled with no rattling and it looks cheap but it does have nice supportive seats and a sporty look. I get 22 miles per gallon in the city even though I push it a lot. Decent for an all wheel drive car.


Favorite Features

AWD, exterior styling and performance.


Suggested Improvements

The stereo quality is not that great. If only Subaru installed better quality speakers that didn't rattle. The transmission feels a bit rough but no problems so far.

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


Review

This car reminds me of an English sports car in the sense that it's a driver's car first. Performance and handling are near perfect, while creature comforts and amenities are less so. But that's OK. I'll trade overhead caddies, fancy cupholders, extra auxiliary power outlets, MP3 hookups, a premium sound system and even a little seat comfort for a thrill ride through canyon twisties any day, and that's what this little car delivers in spades, holding the road like a cat. It's about the most fun you can get in a new sport sedan for about $18,000. And yes, the 2.5 liter non-turbo engine produces plenty of smooth power and great torque for spirited driving in the old sports car tradition.


Favorite Features

Performance and handling, AWD, engine torque, manual transmission, price, upright seating position, headroom, excellent road visibility, simple intuitive controls, traditional instrument panel, uses regular gas, better than expected road noise level and ride quality, hi-beam headlight brightness.


Suggested Improvements

Sound system (radio buzzes when headlights are on), seat-bottom comfort, arm rest height, seat fabric, brake strength. Needs remote trunk opener on key, front cupholders that actually hold cups, telescoping steering adjustment, trunk and hood lights, map lights, better fuel economy. But I quibble.

Review

I just sold my 99 Mustang GT and got an 07 Impreza. Great car. Plenty of pep considering it uses the same engine as the Impreza RS's used from 1999-2005 and it has pretty much the same 0-60 time as the Civic SI for less. The AWD is a blessing in adverse weather. This is my second Subaru and definitely won't be my last. I'll have to step up to a WRX next time though. I highly suggest adding the foglights and spoiler to the vehicle. They really complete the rally like look these cars are bred for.


Favorite Features

Peppy 2.5 liter engine. AWD. Smooth shifter. Great headlights!


Suggested Improvements

I would suggest that Subaru make the rear seats fold 60/40. And bring back the RS title, it's much classier than just "i."

Review

The 2.5i model of the Impreza really is just the little brother of the 200+ WHP WRX and the 300+ WHP STi. If you want a good starter car for a teenager... this is not it. The 2.5i still shows an impressive 175WHP and is easy to upgrade. While the car may be lacking in power, it still shows a lot of promise in the handling and all around performance areas. If you are looking for a car that is an easy comparison to the RSX or the Civic but safer, look no farther. This car is GREAT and I have a feeling it will be great for years to come.


Favorite Features

Handling, AWD, roomy trunk, sleek design, fuel economy.


Suggested Improvements

Replace the SOHC engine with the DOHC to make it easier to play with.
