Overview

Subaru's 2009 Impreza comes in several trim levels. The base 2.5i, the new 2.5GT and the sporty WRX come either as a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback, while the Outback Sport and the STi models are hatchback-only. The sedan is about six inches longer than the hatchback, and the trunk is large enough to hold three golf bags. On both body styles, the rear seats can be folded forward for more cargo capacity; on hatchbacks they fold forward for a flat-loading floor.
