2008 Subaru Impreza WRX 4dr Sedan AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

I traded in my Forester X for a WRX sedan and couldn't be happier with the decision. The WRX is a terrific combination for a cold weather city like Chicago: rocket like power and superb handling mated with all wheel drive and excellent cargo capacity. I'm finding that the WRX has bigger back seats and tons of trunk space so I'm not missing the wagon back. The refinement and finish and quiet ride of the interior is a world apart from the Forester. The only other car I would have considered would have been the Mazdaspeed3 but then I would have the awd for the weather. All around I don't think there is anything comparable in the price range.

Best Features

All wheel drive, turbo, low tach range turbo boost that minimizes the turbo surge that the older WRXs had, quality finishes in the interior.

Worst Features

If there were any way to up the mpg without losing performance that would be great.
