The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX is a niche model that won't appeal to everyone; it's extremely entertaining, remarkably comfortable, and very safe, but might disappoint those who value refinement and frugality for the daily grind. The price is right for the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt, yet most of its competitors offer a better overall value.
