Subaru knocks it out of the park with its redesigned 2017 Impreza sedan and hatchback -- now the top-rated car in the compact class. The Impreza impresses us most with its roominess, user-friendliness, and ride comfort that puts some luxury cars to shame.
This redesign should be a harbinger of things to come since it's based on an entirely new platform, one that will underpin many upcoming Subarus, including the next-generation Crosstrek and Forester.
