Overview

In the 1980s they called them "pocket rockets," subcompact economy cars with a little more power and better handling than the standard models. Most automakers built them because pocket rockets delivered good, clean, practical fun at a reasonable price and created some interest in the showroom. In the late 1990s, when "sport" is more often associated with "utility," pocket rockets come few and far between. Fortunately, the Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS proves that the concept lives. With the 2.5 RS, Subaru takes its subcompact Impreza, installs the 2.5-liter engine from its larger Legacy sedan and wagon, adds a screaming rear spoiler and, Viola! An Impreza worthy of the pocket-rocket heritage. Better still, the Impreza 2.5 RS updates the '80s vision of a pocket rocket. It draws on Subaru's heritage as a force in auto racing's World Rally Championship, and comes equipped with standard all-wheel-drive. It also has something you wouldn't necessarily expect in a subcompact: a back seat that holds two medium-sized adults in reasonable comfort. We drove the 2.5 RS Coupe.
