I recently traded in a 2001 BMW 325i for a 2008 Impreza WRX 5-door. Although I loved my BMW, I was not able to afford all the features I really wanted. After searching, I chose the Subaru for its blend of power, handling, and usability. I also look forward to only having one set of wheels/tires that will work year around so I do not have to mess with swapping winter and three-season wheels every year. I think this car was a good choise and I think it will work out well.
Excellent power from turbo four cylinder engine. Lots of good features from Premium package. Subaru's Hill Assist is a very thoughtful feature. Should be excellent car in winter.
