2010 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
As a disabled driver, I purchased this car for the safety it provides in snow. It runs quietly and is quite comfortable. Plenty of pep too. But mostly, a car must be equipped with hand controls for me to drive. Not all cars are created equal in this regard. In my 30 years of driving with controls, I've never had an easier install with minimal intrusion into the cabin space. It's as if Subaru designed this car specifically for the disabled driver in mind. My driving position is superb and feels totally natural and not awkward. For those unfortunate folks who need to drive by hand, give this car a look. It just works.
Quiet comfortable cabin with little road noise. Excellent seating position for me. Well controlled ride. Good power. Very roomy and excellent view of the road. Again, superb design for hand control users.
The radio could be a touch better, but that's a minor issue for me.
