2010 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Special Edition 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Have only a couple hundred miles on this beast, but I am feeling the love. Very mild mannered in daily driving, and the stiff suspension is livable. But, any acceleration above 4,000 rpm is when the magic happens. Then hold on! Superior performance and handling for a bargain price.
Engine HP and torque, combined with the handling are outstanding. Great looking car too.
Subaru stereo systems are noted for being just so-so, but hey, who listens to CDs or radio when you've got engine and turbo music.
