Reviews for Subaru Impreza
almost a great car !
so fist off, my 2016 impreza hatchback sport is almost a great car for the price. carmax did a great job cleaning and servicing the vehicle for purchase. the sport is a very nice car with most of the options that customers expect. rear view camera, keyless start, leather, etc. however the car itself seems under powered . i would recommend a suburu with the larger 2.5 or just go ahead and treat yourself to the turbo version. great run around town car but if you are considering longer trips upgrade to the forester or something.
- Technology and Entertainment: comes with most options customers want : back up camera , phone connectivity, etc -
- Fuel Economy: good gas mileage
- Weather Versatility: all wheel drive extremely useful in rain
- Power: under powered. little 2.0 just isnt enough for a car that size. IMO
- Cabin Noise: loud road noise on highway
- Ride and Handling: stiff and bumpy ride.
Fast and Fun - even as a grocery getter!
This car punches above its price level in terms of performance. AWD sports car =all 265 horses hit the road. When you hit 3k RPM, you feel that turbo kick in and you are off! Look for the 2013 Orange ones - only 200 WRX and 100 STI were made with this trim package! To top it off - the car's safety features are keyed into Subaru's Rally car platform. These things are tanks in crashes! The A/B/C pillars are reinforced (basically a light-weight roll cage built into the car). The drivetrain buckle zones are designed to make the H-4 engine rotate vertical and act as a shield for the passenger compartment in a bad enough crash. Subaru knows a thing or two about how they perform in worst case crashes from decades of rally cross experience!
- Ride and Handling: AWD with power, low center of gravity due to H-4 Boxer engine, in a well balanced car
- Power: It is only 4 cylinder, but it will give a V8 a run for its money. The 2008-2013 WRX is actually .1 second faster in the quarter mile than its bigger brother, the WRX STI (one less gear change in 0-60). 14+ correct this by making the WRX a 6 speed.
- Reliability: Its a Subaru. As long as you arent smoking the clutch at every stoplight, your key will wear out before the engine.
Wonderful car, period. Price was right in line with anywhere else.
It's been a pleasure to drive and it came to me with nothing at all broken as far as I could tell. It is a very clean car with no cosmetic issues on the interior or exterior. It drives very well and I feel comfortable in the interior driving space. It feels large on the inside except for the tightness of seats for purposes of rear side viewing. It is a very tastefully designed car on the inside, and I love the Subaru logo on the steering wheel. These cars are reputed to be extremely reliable and I needed a car with all wheel drive
- Ride and Handling: This car stays very level as it corners due to its low profile boxer engine. The ride is very smooth and stable also due to low profile.
- Weather Versatility: This car should do well in snow as it has all wheel drive. I have already driven it in light snow and it has done well.
- Fuel Economy: seems pretty good. I can drive it forty miles to fifty miles a day for a week on one tank of gas.
- Cabin Noise: This was a slight issue early-- the car had only 18600 miles on it when I bought it, but it was a little noisy. This cleared up VERY nicely as soon as I had the first scheduled transmission and differential fluid exchange done and had the oil changed. It purrs nicely now.
- Visibility: Seeing out the rear windows right and left poses an issue due to tight seat arrangement that impedes visibility somewhat.
