2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Fun to drive, plenty of torque, manual trans a little clunky, needs to be easier to shift, headliner seems to be made of cardboard, plastics on dash are not top notch. Instrument cluster is good, reminds me of Audi. Test drove Civic Si, Subaru is quieter, better ride and don't have to shift as often, also get more torque at lower rpm, seats are more comfy and easier to clean, more back seat room. I picked WRX even though it cost several thousand more for its driving character and I like the looks of the sedan.
Instrument cluster, seats.
Improve plastics on dash, headliner, lighted visor, better stereo, power seats,sunglass holder.
