Cool A few easy q's from a newbie

Hello everyone!

I'm looking at buying a impreza here in the near future and have a few questions.

1. How close is aegean blue in color to rally blue? I've seen pics on the web but it's kind of hard to tell.

2. Are the automatics slower than the 5spds?

3. How much faster are the 2.5's over the 2.2's

Thanks for any help.

Not very. The aegean blue is a lot closer to green than blue.


2. Are the automatics slower than the 5spds?

r u trying to start a fight? answer: yes and no. Same power output, BUT a manual gives you better control of your power. And the manual has a 50/50 split of AWD, but the auto has a like a 80/20 split to the front wheels for traction and AWD.

3. How much faster are the 2.5's over the 2.2's

2.5 is 165hp and the 2.2 is like 125-140hp. I think it s closer to the lower end of that figure. Although I am sure that Peaty will be along soon and correct me as he has both.

Let's see, for #1 I have no idea what aegean blue looks like, so can't tell you #2 automatics are slower than manuals, trust me I have both #3 I've never driven a 2.2, but the difference is 23hp.

Hope this helps

I have an Legacy OB Limited so it has the 2.5 (DOHC though) and so does my RS(SOHC) so I'm not sure really But the OB is an auto and it's heavier and slower...

1. Not at all

2. A little

3. The 2.5 has more torque so it should pull better.

1) Covered. It's not close.
2) YES.
3) Not much.

I owned a 2.2l 4eat Legacy, 2.2l 5-speed Impreza, and a 2.5l 5-speed Impreza. Going from the 4eat to the 5-speed was a much bigger difference (granted the legacy is heavier) than going from 2.2l to 2.5l was.
