The Impreza is a roomy compact that is available in both sedan and five-door hatchback body styles. It has a very comfortable ride, agile and secure handling, and the cabin is fairly quiet for the category. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission that mimics a conventional automatic and is not overly intrusive. We got 30 mpg overall with our sedan, commendable given the standard all-wheel drive. The infotainment screen is easy to use, and the rear seat is roomy for the a compact car. We recommend buying Subaru's comprehensive EyeSight suite of advanced safety gear, which includes forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking.
