It's underpowered. The current Impreza is adequately powered but suffers heavily from CVT drone from what I've experienced with it. Add 100 more lbs to that base and you've got an underpowered vehicle. It's particularly underpowered for locations like Colorado where Subarus sell like hotcakes.
Like I said, I love everything about it save the power plant. I especially like the black guages, as the white ones in the Impreza are barf city IMO.
