For the sports or young family driver who wants reliable decent capacity load carrying capability without the weight penalty, outstanding 4WD road holding, STi performance and reliability - with the ability to not only be practical, but a lot of fun to drive, this is the wagon to own. Better dynamically than the later heavier and more watered down bugeye WRX wagons, in terms of performance & fun - you'll be hard pressed to find better. Classic Impreza Sti performance - with all the practicality of a normal 5 door wagon. The cross country performance this example offers to genuine driving enthusiasts makes other manufacturer's modern examples with excessive electronic driving aids inferior if you're the sort who likes to drive by yourself, not have electronics do much of it for you. Electronics which - annoyingly go wrong from time to time too. These imprezas were beautifully engineered and remain entirely usable every-day cars, although we would add - this one would benefit in the long term from being well preserved from rust before it begins it's life on the UK's roads.
