1997 Subaru Impreza L 4dr Wagon AWD


As a first-car-owner, I guess I don't
have much to compare it to, but my
little Impreza is a great car,
especially considering what I paid.
Very comfortable drive position,
leather steering wheel, very accessible
instrument panel, except the cup
holder. It's straight-line performance
is adequate, a little better since I
added a cold air intake, but its
cornering capabilities are limitless,
especially with my strut bar. This
economy 5-door wagon hugs turns like
they're going out of style. AWD is
awesome, snow means nothing anymore.

Best Features

Drive position, leather steering wheel, instrument panel, all-wheel drive, trunkspace, folding rear-seats, basic yet stylish interior, engine roar, subtle spoiler and sporty roof rack. Front end is very aggressive looking.

Worst Features

Cup holder, rear legroom (though what should I care, I'm never back there :), alloy wheels would've been nice... gold ones... :), and a sunroof is an option on the 2.5RS, why not the 2.2wagon? The rear is borderline ugly.
