2009 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Impreza is sort of a middle between focus and RAV4 and then it has a class by itself. The fuel economy could be better but it was a trade-off to AWD. What caught the eye first is the interior finished with better grade plastic, and chrome accents, leather wrapping are a nice capping. Fuel economy is ranged between 20-26 mpg pending on your driving style (go easy on that pedal and use some hyper-miling techniques). Interestingly the car looked like a lowered suspension version of Lexus 400h with Corolla-esque lights. I struggled between premium and sport, finally decided 17" + taller susp. > sunroof. Road noise is slightly higher to other cars I test drove.

Best Features

Seat warmers. Hatch + luggage rack = 44+ cubic" cargo. AWD + VDC + lowered, flat boxer = sticks to the road and hugs the corners. Styling int & ext. Higher suspension + 17" alloy = more cross terrain capability.

Worst Features

More sound proofing for engine compartment and lower carriage please! If by miracle, improve fuel consumption of this proven AWD platform.
