In the small car segment, the Subaru Impreza is often overshadowed by more popular nameplates. But things are changing as consumers are discovering that the Impreza can be a fine choice for a compact car, especially if you're looking for an affordably priced car with winter-weather capability.

The Impreza's most notable edge is its distinctive powertrain, as this model has always been available with all-wheel drive. This provides it with extra traction in slippery conditions and, on higher-horsepower models, works in combination with the Impreza's well-sorted suspension to provide entertaining handling. The Impreza has always been powered by its unusual horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, which emits a distinctive growl during acceleration. Competitive in most other respects, the well-built Subaru Impreza is worth considering if you're shopping for a small sedan or hatchback/wagon.
