Subaru Impreza WRX/STi

2009-2014
2009 Redesign Year
A sporty version of the Impreza, the WRX's turbocharged engine provides quick and effortless acceleration, and the well-tuned suspension delivers a supple ride with agility. Its steering is sharp, but more demanding cornering elicits a bit too much body lean for a sports sedan.
The STi is more powerful and much harder riding. It is a fierce performer, although not as agile as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. In later years, the base WRX has STi-like styling and some of the STi's suspension updates.

2002-2004
2002 Redesign Year
One of the better small cars, the Impreza serves up a supple ride and enjoyable handling. Paired with a well-tuned suspension, sharp steering makes the car feels agile and fun to drive.
Standard anti-lock brakes and all-wheel-drive provide confidence in slippery conditions. Road noise can grow wearisome on longer trips. Sedans lack a folding seatback, which is a common feature in this class. The rally-racing inspired WRX, with its 227-hp turbocharged engine, and the even more potent 300-hp WRX STi version are a blast to drive. Suspension revisions in 2006 and newer WRXs made handling at the limit trickier; no stability control was available.
