2016 Impreza

2016 Subaru Impreza sedan

Pros: Standard (and affordable) all-wheel drive; spacious-for-the-class cabin; smooth ride

Cons: Noisier all-around than most class rivals; finicky touchscreen controls; mediocre acceleration

CG Says: The 2016 Subaru Impreza gains new telematics safety services. Otherwise, Impreza is unchanged. Impreza brings to the very competitive compact-car market some rare-for-the-class features including the choice of a hatchback-like station-wagon body style, standard all-wheel drive, and the brand’s signature “boxer” engine layout. Impreza delivers a well-rounded package that’s roomy, pleasant to drive, and very practical. Downsides include an engine that isn’t particularly powerful and can be quite noisy at times. For shoppers adventuresome enough to look beyond the default choices in small cars, the Impreza could be a very satisfying pick.
