One of the better small cars, the Impreza serves up a supple ride and well-balanced handling. The WRX delivers true sports-car driving enjoyment. Its turbocharged 227-hp engine provides quick and effortless acceleration, especially at mid-rpm, and its well-tuned suspension offers agile, enjoyable handling along with a compliant ride. The RS sedan, TS wagon, and SUV-influenced Outback Sport make do with a 2.5-liter, 165-hp engine. The wagon's cargo volume is small. The Outback Sport rides stiffly and doesn't handle as well as other Imprezas. A score of Good in an IIHS offset-crash test is a plus. An uncompromising 300-hp WRX STi model has been added.

Road Test

The Impreza's well-engineered chassis provides a balance of ride and handling comparable to far costlier cars. With precise steering, a compliant ride and agile handling, it's fun to drive. It's also the least expensive all-wheel-drive sedan. Drawbac...
