Best Impreza I've ever driven!
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 WRX STI Type UK 5dr (Review date: 5th January '12)
Quickest production Impreza to leave the factory. This is one bad ass motor!!! Naughty bits 6 pot brembos on the front 4 pot on the rear grooved discs all around forged aluminium alloys STI suspension upgrades including rose joints.......thought they were only meant for race cars.....this car is crazy!!!
This diesel impreza is in a class of its own.Great to drive.
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.0D RC 5dr (Review date: 21st June '11)
I love this car. Mine is in bright red and it looks like a wrx. Its a very pratical car ideal for me and the family including the dog. It drives well,smooth ride and handles corners with ease.Makes you feel safe. Running costs are more average like other 2.0 ltr cars.
pros - Only £165 road tax. Nearly 50 mpg.Low insurance premium.
Plenty of room for adults in the back and decent head room.
Reliability comes as standard its a subaru. 4 x 4 .
cons- Paint work could be better. The total cost for a new car.
Not a wrx.Would more than likley get you to work in the snow.
Should hold its value and would make a good second hand buy.
Road going Rally Rocket 330s
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 WRX STI 330S 5dr (Review date: 25th April '11)
Accelerates like a maniac, quicker than most at 4.4secs (0-60mph)
Extremely strong traction in bends and exiting, many modes to play with.
Rare on the road (Compared to Focus RS, Megane RS etc)
330s has a sweet Subaru burble
Creaky interior & cheap plastics used
Does not allow for slow driving
Best car i've ever had
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 WRX S 5dr (Review date: 27th March '11)
After Recently trading my 2.5 focus ST in for a 2.0 diesel golf I really wandered what i'd done? apart from the low running costs of the golf it wasn't anything special, Then i saw This Gorgous Scooby on a local garage forcourt ,test drove it and absolutley fell in love with it.
I've had it for about a month now & i have to say its best thing i ever did. It looks Fantastic, it drives superbly-so smooth , handles like a dream,its got that wow factor, & its put the smile back on my face that i had with the ST. The seats are really comfy, plenty of room for 4 aduls & 2 dogs in the hatch. The quality of the stereo system could be better but at least it works.Being used to moderatly high running costs i knew what i was letting myself in for, but Its well worth it & driving it sensibly i can average 30mpg on a run so its not that bad for a performance car. I just wish the Goverment would lower the road tax as its a bit ridiculous at £400 a year.

Great car for the money
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 WRX STI Type UK 5dr (Review date: 22nd February '11)
Excellent performance for this price bracket cannot be matched
The quality of the interior is far superior to the subaru's of old. Although not up to bmw or audi quality subaru really have made a great advance on material used on this car. Much more comfortable and better quality than older subarus yet still with all the fun
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 WRX STI Type UK 5dr (Review date: 29th January '11)
Reliability is fantastic, performace is increadible. Every day use even for a family of 4 is ideal. Great for long jurneys with the family.
Used for the occasional family trip to Disney Land Paris without missing a beat. Baby seats with Isofix are very easy to fit.
With 4 wheel drive the car is very sure footed in difficult weather even in the snow.
Safety levels are very high. Fuel consumption is now great on average around 25MPG, however considering the performance level its better then you could hope.
Most Economical Subaru Ever
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 WRX STI Type UK 5dr (Review date: 22nd January '11)
I've owned over 50 Subaru's over the years ranging from a 1.6 right upto a STi Spec C and I've found the MY08 Hatchback the easiest to live with on a daily basis for ride, comfort, spacious for kids, boot size, and better economy economy than all of them, The seats are tight but not uncomfortable over long journeys due to the bases being wider. On i-Drive setting driven normally around town and some motorway use I managed to average a whopping 34.3 MPG which taking into account todays fuel costs was amazing for a 300 BHP 2.5 Rally Bred Car I actually found it to be slightly cheaper than my 325d BMW. I think Subaru have achieved with this car what they set out to do and that was to try and concour the medium size family car market but keep the essence of the aggressive brut of the rally car when needed.
Subaru Stands Out
SUBARU IMPREZA 1.5 RX 5dr (Review date: 13th January '11)
I have drove this car for 2 years now from new, my partner and I were in the process of buying our first house and I couldnt believe some of the stuff we were able to fit into the car during the moving process.
The back seats fold flat and the space is enormous, shower enclosures, doors, fridgfreezer and cooker all slid in the back individually without any problems. Also 2 sets of golf clubs with trolleys fit into the boot without the seats put down.
The car has never gave me any problems, it has been a pleasure to drive and very comfortable on long distance travels.
Recent heavy snowfall caused dreadful driving conditions for some, but the subaru just stuck to the road with its 4 wheel drive and no wheel spinning was experianced whilst others struggled.
If the engine was slightly more economical I would have kept the car until it was drove into the ground, especially with Subaru's track record of quality builds, some of their cars are still on the road today that are over 20 years old which says alot for their reliability and sustanance.
In my opinion this is a perfect family car and at the same time has a sporty edge and looks to go with it. Fuel consumption could be better but is expected with 4 wheel drive vehicles.
Subaru Impreza WRX
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 WRX 5dr (Review date: 8th January '11)
We have had this car for 3 years and have loved it. Its a great sports performance car and also a perfect family car - no compromise needed. We have had absolutely no mechanical faults with the car at all in those three years apart from normal wear maintenance.
Running costs are reasonable but tax is not the cheapest but if you are looking for this type of car you will know this already.
The performance is great and will not disappoint at all, perfect in all conditions, good road holding and 4WD gives extra stability and handling. Much safer in snow and ice cpnditions than your average car. We have had no complaints at all and are only selling because we now have a third child and think we need to get a bigger car.
