After nearly purchasing a Tribeca, we opted for the smaller better looking Impreza. Initially I was concerned about the smaller size of the Impreza compared to the Tribeca. Within the first couple weeks it was obvious the Impreza has plenty of seating and storage room, making us wonder why we almost bought a 7-passenger Tribeca. The car handles great, like you're stuck to the road regardless of road conditions. Power is better than expected which has made it very fun to drive. Interior isn't fancy but is well assembled and clean. Exterior has drawn lots of positive feedback. With a cargo box, bike racks and ski racks the car is extremely versatile. Great family car.
AWD, performance, build quality, interior and exterior design, beautiful two-tone gray color, wonderful cloth seating, versatility, satellite radio, 27 mpg average. Awesome looks and performance for a family car.
5-6 speed sport shift automatic transmission, longer center console armrest, aux. power for rear seat, entertainment system for rear seat. The transmission is the only suggested improvement, the rest are more a wish list that will probably be taken care of aftermarket .
