Haha, well you do realize the Impreza uses a traditional 4-speed automatic... right? Not even a CVT. Well the 2009 model I drove did at least. But to be honest it wasn't that bad. The throttle was extremely responsive and there was never any lack of power with its choice of gear, even as I tossed it around hilly back roads. I seriously came close to actually buying it.

But yes, dual clutch Subies would kick major ass. It would definitely help improve the fuel economy to get more of that horsepower and torque down on all four wheels. Anyway sorry... getting a little off topic here.
