2009 Subaru Impreza WRX Review – A Triple Threat

By Courtney Caldwell


Impreza Quietly flying under the radar, Subaru is one automotive brand that needs to be watched as it surfaces with unbelievably cool cars.


Known for its amazing and abundant safety features as well as its dexterous use on-road and off, this week’s 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX test car impressed and surprised the hell out of me. It felt more like go-cart than car, making it a whole lot of fun to drive…or should I say ‘zip’ around town. Add to that its all-wheel drive and five-star front and side crash ratings, and you end up with both fun and function, a rare combination of talent indeed. In fact, beware same-class competitors as this is one talent of triple threat.


For those with safety top of mind, the WRX delivers all the right stuff to make you feel safe and secure no matter who you are, where you are or whatever you’re doing. Styling is cool yet conservative; not boring nor bodacious. With keyless entry, you enter a cabin of comfort and convenience with automatic climate control, carpeting and cruise control, to name a few. Estimated miles per gallon average 18MPG city/25MPG highway – however, it may be hard to contain yourself in a dynamic WRX 5-speed due to its need for speed.


Driving the WRX offers far more than fun and function, safety and satisfaction, pep and perkiness; it also leaves you with a sense of pride in knowing that it’s not impugning the planet with a large carbon footprint. If all that isn’t a triple threat then I don’t know what is. For more information on the Subaru Impreza WRX, drive here!
