2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Driving experience from behind the wheel exceeds expectations for a compact. Power more than adequate for city driving. First gear is short - takes off quick. Manual transmission is crisp. Handling and traction are superb - sticks to the road like paint when pushed hard. Ride is supple, rebound damping well tuned. Feels solidly planted. Standard features include: full-time AWD, independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, 16" alloy wheels, good tires, traction control, anti-lock brakes, power steering, airbags, power windows, A/C, 80W CD player, tilt-wheel, keyless entry, roof rack, ext temp gauge. Interior is clean and functional. Firm, supportive seats. Fun to drive, economical.

Best Features

Excellent handling. Feels solidly planted at all times. Nimble, with quick steering. Traction seems unbreakable. I wouldn't race it for pink slips, but the engine is surprisingly responsive.

Worst Features

Some trim seems cheap. It's a budget compact. It's loaded with electronics; I hope they last.
