This Japanese automaker has long 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. Another welcome feature is the EyeSight suite of high-tech safety features. Historically, Subaru models have fared well in our owner satisfaction and reliability surveys, although the WRX is a recent exception for its subpar reliability. The model line has been reinvigorated with the impressive updated Legacy and Outback.
