Ride & Handling

There's no question you're going to feel the road when driving the Impreza 2.5GT, but while the sport suspension always lets you know when you've driven over a large bump in the road, the impact from those bumps and holes isn't jarring to occupants. The shocks do a nice job absorbing impacts, and the car remains poised when driving on undulating roads. Body roll isn't a problem when pushing the car hard through a corner, as the 2.5GT feels nicely planted.

The 2.5GT's steering is worth highlighting, too, as it's precise. It takes some effort to turn the wheel, as there isn't a lot of power assistance, but that pays off when driving on the highway. The car doesn't feel twitchy or skittish in those circumstances, but rather locked-in and ready to track wherever you point it. It doesn't hurt that the steering wheel feels great in your hands, too, thanks to its thick leather-wrapped rim, which is standard.
