2009 Subaru Impreza WRX 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Premium Package (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I was shopping for a new car, and looked at the 08 STI among others. Waited and test drove the new 09 WRX and felt that it fit my daily driving needs much better. Don't get me wrong, the STI is still a beast, but the updated 09 WRX with 265 HP, better suspension, etc, and some STI looks in the grille and rear spoiler make the WRX a great purchase for most daily drivers. Great handling and smooth power so far. Expect easy maintenance and good reliability. Interior fits well and looks good, just some hard plastics here and there, nothing bad.

Best Features

Heated cloth seats with the premium package! The turbo with 265 HP! AWD! Hatchback utility!

Worst Features

Premium package should add HID lights (they're already on the STI) and I know that Subaru is putting Harman Kardon stereos in the 09 Legacy, how about offering it on the WRX and STI?
