This Japanese automaker has been synonymous with unpretentious, practical, and affordable all-wheel-drive cars. Subarus have done well in our testing, thanks to roomy interiors, easy access, great visibility, intuitive controls, good fuel economy, and a comfortable ride. Most models have recently gotten a contemporary infotainment system that’s easy to use. Another welcome feature is the EyeSight suite of high-tech safety features. Most Subaru models fare well in our owner satisfaction and reliability surveys.
