2010 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


We're still enjoying our Impreza tremendously since new and have been using it daily. Have not had any issues outside of careless people banging their doors in parking lots. Size of the vehicle is working nicely for our family in terms of leg room and shoulder room. Traction and vehicle control is unbelievable with the AWD system and wheel/tire set up. Very stable handling on the freeway - feels more secure than anything I've driven. Still not a big fan of the velvetty interior fabric but it's not the worst I've seen. Plastic surfaces too hard to the touch and fuel economy is mediocre. Stock stereo should have an AUX input for iPods - lame! Padding on the seats could be thicker.

Best Features

Handling, interior simplicity, sharp exterior looks, Spark Silver color, AWD, reliability, safety/crash test record, right amount of interior space, good acceleration even with auto, body-color mirrors and door handles, super tight turning circle, compact size for maneuverability.

Worst Features

Make AUX stereo input standard,also make separate tweeters standard, thicker padding on seats, less hard plastic for interior surfaces, improve fuel economy (at least a couple of MPG), better quality interior fabric choice like stuff used for Forester, slightly higher front passenger seat.
