View Full Version : Thinking about buying a Impreza

11-28-2010, 10:10 PM
I'm on the market for a new car and I'm considering a Subaru Impreza. I have been researching and I like the fact that Subaru's are AWD and seem very reliable. I do a lot of driving with my job and need something tough as nails. What can I expect with the Impreza 2.5i? I know the WRX and STI are much faster, but how fast is the 2.5 with auto compared to cars in it's class like the Honda Civic, and Mazda3? I haven't test drove the Impreza or Mazda3 yet but the civic was rather boring. I want something in automatic trans that has a little zip to it but don't want to drive a manual. I figured I would ask on car enthusiast site to get some feed back. I will be test driving the Impreza and Mazda 3 later this week.
