2010 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

From '03 WRX to '10 STi SE. Even with the AC on, this car's acceleration absolutely destroys my 03 WRX w/ AC turned off, and less turbo lag. Ride is noticeably stiffer (but quieter), but an issue only on poorly maintained roads; handles extremely well. Plenty of room for the kids in the back seat, dog in the hatch. Interior/seats are nice, but seats need more side bolstering. Stereo is awful. Short- throw shifter a must-have upgrade. Can set fuel cut as high as 6700, neat little beeping shift light. Adjustable center differential. Set throttle to S#, Sport and I mode are sluggish. Brembo stopping power is just brutal. I average 18.5mpg mixed driving. 5-star crash-test ratings.

Best Features

Acceleration; handling/grip; more roomy and quieter than previous generations; flared fenders; and SE wheels; Brembo brakes

Worst Features

Better side bolsters in seats or offer Recaro seats option; better stereo offered standard (seriously, this is a $32-34K car and the stereo system is garbage); needs push-button start; add matching red stitching to shifter/e- brake boots; bit more sound deadening material
