impreza rs VS ts

Discussion in 'Subaru Impreza' started by dontbeleivethis, Jul 5, 2003.

  1. Hello

    i am thinking of purchasing a subaru impreza 2.5l. The TS is 5
    grand cheaper (canada funds) then the RS. What is the difference
    between the RS and the TS other then looks.

    And when it comes to used cars, what are some thinks to look for when
    purchasing a used TS ?

  2. So this is a canadian model? (options vary between canada, USA, and other
    locations) - looking at the subaru canada site, it looks like the TS wagon
    is an automatic only, and the RS is a manual only (which is weird) -
    depending on what you are going to do with the car, the TS wagon is going to
    be much more practical (can carry more stuff, etc.) than the RS sedan.
    (this is a completely unbiased opinion from a WRX sportwagon owner :) )

    As far as what to look for in a used TS - as with any other used car, have
    it professionally inspected before purchasing, run a carfax report, etc.

    drum brakes (ts) vs disc brakes (rs)
    ts is scaled down
    ts is a wagon
    rs is a sedan

  4. only in automatic? They didnt have a single automatic TS or RS when i
    was at one of my local dealerships. 5 Speed was the only thing.

  5. maybe it's for the '04's? I was looking at www.subaru.ca - they have a spec
    sheet which shows the manual transmission as the only choice on the RS and
    the auto on the TS, which is why I said that was weird!
