Subaru Impreza Summary

The Subaru Impreza is one of the most reliable compact cars on the market, with consistently high safety ratings to give you peace of mind while you're behind the wheel. Both the sedan and hatchback models provide a smooth and stable ride in all road conditions, thanks to its sturdy full-time all-wheel drive and well-engineered suspension.
