The 2008 Subaru Impreza is redesigned with an all-new look and is available in a 4-door sedan or a 5-door. Equipped with an all-new double wishbone rear suspension and chassis the Impreza also has a lower overall weight and a longer wheelbase. Interior room has been increased for more rear-seat legroom and front shoulder room. The framed windows allow for better body rigidity and a quieter interior. Powering the Impreza is a 2.5-liter 170-horsepower engine and a 2.5-liter 224-horsepower turbocharged engine for the WRX. Both engines have been modified for improved emissions and are tuned for improved low-rpm acceleration. Standard safety equipment includes side-curtain airbags, Subaru Advanced Frontal Airbag System (SRS) with front seat head / chest side impact airbags (SRS) and a driver’s side front airbag.

Another Subaru fan! by Al from California on 09/04/2012. Trim: 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 5-door, Owned 4 years.

Pros: It's fun, powerful, very reliable, stylish and economical. The smooth-running 2.5 boxer and symmetrical AWD provide great balance and traction on curves. I also love the sport shift & GPS. I have the wagon, which has just enough extra cargo space when I need it.
Cons: It would be a bit more convenient if the wagon's rear glass could open separately from the main hatch, but it's not a big deal. Other than that, no complaints.
Overall review: I regret that I didn't buy a Subaru years ago. The five other brands I've owned before turned out to be a waste. This Impreza provides an exciting yet comfortable driving experience, but also has the traditional Subaru attributes of ruggedness and reliability, which make it a great daily utilitarian workhorse. As long as Subaru keeps up the good work, I'll keep buying 'em!
