Subaru Impreza Overview

The Impreza is a particularly well-rounded package and is among our top-scoring compact sedans. The ride is very absorbent and controlled. Handling is responsive and secure. Acceleration is adequate, and fuel economy of 27 mpg overall for the sedan is impressive given the standard all-wheel drive. The hatchback gets 26 mpg overall and has a handy-sized cargo area. The continuously variable transmission exacerbates engine noise, and road noise is pronounced, but that's our only serious complaint. The rear seat is spacious for the class, controls are straightforward and easy to use, and visibility is good.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
