2006 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan test drive


Long-distance comfort was not initially one of the WRX's strong points, but a couple of recent changes have made the 2006 car a much more liveable long-distance tourer. Its engine, for one, has been enlarged from 2.0 to 2.5 litres, so you don't need to wind it up or downshift as much for decent passing power. It's smoother, quieter, and generally more refined than the old motor, and seems to get similar gas mileage, at least on the highway. Second, new seats have been fitted, with one-piece backrests similar to the STi model's, which are terrifically supportive during cornering but with enough plushness to coddle you during long highway stints.
