2012 Subaru Impreza: Like The Ride/Handling Balance

September 27, 2012

2012 Subaru Impreza

I took our Impreza for a drive today to get more of a feel for its handling capabilities. I came away pretty impressed. Our Impreza doesn't immediately feel all that sporty through the steering wheel when you're driving around town (it feels dull and a little heavy), but when run through corners there's an impressive level of grip and composure. Of course, there's also all-wheel drive to help put the power down when coming out of tight corners as well.

I was also surprised by how well the Impreza took on bumps and ruts. The suspension does a nice job of filtering out the rough stuff, but it doesn't come at the expense of body control.

Nice job, Subaru.
