    Subaru Impreza Consumer Reviews | FANTACO.STORE

    Total Package Beats its competitors. Test drove all of the compact contenders. While there were some aspects of the other vehicles that may have a slight edge over the Impreza in terms of standard features, I found the handling to be superior to all of them, including the Focus and the Mazda 3. Even with AWD it equals or exceeds other cars in its class for fuel economy.

    That Subaru's reliability and resale value are on par with Honda made this an easy decision. I was impressed by the greatly improved interior as opposed to the prior iteration. Ironically, even though I felt the hatchback was a bit more attractive than the sedan, I bought the sedan as it seemed more composed on the highway than the hatch at high speed not to mention the sedan is cheaper.

    I initially assumed I would walk away with a manual transmission, but that changed after noticing that 5th gear on the manual was lifeless. I was surprised by the CVT and paddle shifters and the very quick throttle response from a stop which was a sharp contrast from the dual clutch setup of a competitor which was very herky jerky at low speed.

    I ended up with a 2. This was the only car in its class that actually felt like a legit small sport sedan with the added bonus of AWD drive to get me through the snow.

    Really, I think the only reason why Subaru isn't getting the accolades that Ford and Hyundai are for the Elantra and Focus is that I notice that there haven't been any comparo tests including the Impreza. I suspect the sleeper Impreza is going to surprise them, especially with the handling which to me even outclassed the Mazda 3.

    Your feedback has been sent to Cars. Very happy so far. The car replaces a '94 Impreza which has been the most bulletproof car we've ever owned. It still looks and runs fine, and the only mechanical problem in that time was a failed fuel pump at K miles. I've rated the reliability of the new car at 5 stars in the hope it will be just as good but time will tell. Performance is very good for the kind of car it is. Bear in mind that this is not a WRX, so we're not talking sports-car performance.

    Despite the small engine, acceleration off the line is punchy actually quicker than I would like. Handling, with the AWD, is exceptional. This is why you get a car with AWD in a place where it doesn't snow. Interior is kind of spartan and retro. Despite the hype about "soft-touch materials" there are some cheesy plastic bits.

    The seats are comfy enough. The main attractions is that there is a lot of room. The salesman who accompanied us on the test drive was about the size of an NFL lineman, but even he could slip into the back seat without a fuss. Even better, when you fold the rear seats down, the cargo space is huge.

    Really, you could drop a fridge into the back of this thing. I don't really care about styling. Every car is basically a box on four wheels. It looks nice enough, but the big rear bumper asks, "does this make my butt look big? Stereo with bluetooth and iPod connectivity sounds nice but is seriously annoying to operate.
