Subaru Impreza

The Subaru Impreza is a compact car that competes in a crowded segment with such stalwarts as the Ford Focus, the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla. Subaru's trump card has always been all-wheel drive however, and the new Impreza keeps with this tradition, offering more go anywhere capabilities than any of its competitors, while also offering more sure-footed performance in inclement weather conditions. The downside to all-wheel drive has classically been fuel economy, but Subaru has managed to sidestep that problem with their optional CVT automatic transmission, which can vary the gear ratios on the fly to maximize efficiency at all times. Prices start at just above $18,000.

The Subaru Impreza has been on sale in the US since 1993. In its quarter-century existence, it's been through five generations, with the most recent generation arriving for the 2017 model year.

For 2019, not much is new for the compact, all-wheel drive sedan except for optional adaptive safety tech being offered across the entire model range and a $100 base price bump compared with the 2018 model.
