2008 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
OK, I've heard all you drivers of other makes talk about performance and fuel economy; this is a very competitive market segment. But, if you could give up very little speed and gas mileage, in exchange for top safety ratings, reliability and engineering, would you do it? Now, factor in rain and snow. Not only is Subaru the best bad weather vehicle that is practical for daily driving, it will outperform the rest of the market segment when road conditions are tough. The symmetrical AWD system does not introduce any of the instability or inefficiency cause by the systems that divert power off-axis. Pick a nasty day and go drive one to see for yourself.
Favorite Features
If you have to go out, regardless of the weather, and you don't want to keep a 2nd specialty vehicle in your garage, there really is no better car. I get 27 mpg in mixed driving, with 100% reliability, and some fun.
Suggested Improvements
This car could use a 6th gear for highway cruising. Subaru should also offer an option of high performance brakes from the WRX.
