Even the base Impreza at well under $20,000 comes with Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System and fuel economy competitive with other compact cars in its price range. For more adventurous drivers, the WRX and STI trim levels bring rally-inspired performance at impressive prices.

Driving the Impreza
