2008 Subaru Impreza review

The Subaru Impreza WRX is the rare type of car that combines year-round drivability, day-to-day livability and reasonable comfort with versatility Ч and is, all the while, a blast to drive. Along with a change in exterior styling, the 2008 has a better drivetrain, chassis and interior, and they make the WRX more tempting than ever.

Available as a sedan or a four-door hatchback, the WRX is basically the middle between the regular Impreza and the WRX STi, the latter of which is an uncompromising fire-breather that's modeled after Subaru's championship rally car. To see what's changed for 2008, check out a side-by-side comparison. There's also an Impreza Outback Sport, which is like the better-known Outback, a larger model.
