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

Review

Owned 87Accrd, 94Maxima, 97Taurus, 00Accord, and after researching deprec. rate, insurance, cost of operation, and reliability against models like CR-V, RAV4, and Focus I decided that Impreza make a very solid pkg, and after I test drove it (2.5i prem and GT)I decided that I'd go for real value: Outback Sport (seat warmer+17" alloy/ raised susp. > sunroof+2 xtra spkr). GT was a nerfed version of WRX, and if I am ready for an WRX I'd go STI anyway. Overall I really liked VDC; it gave the already phenomenal AWD feel an extra polish and ctrl. But it will be tough for your brakes as it will brake harder than you'd intend to, road noise is also slightly more noticeable than top compacts I tested.

Favorite Features

performance: VDC+AWD, raised susp., comfort: adj. driver seat (up/dwn), seat warmer, cup holders, easy to maintain seat fabric. cargo tray, aux jack.

Suggested Improvements

Pronounced road noise: more sound proofing for interior or at least wheel wells. More stiffening of the shock pistons would help road response. Add sub-woofer as a standard not as option.
