2014 Subaru Impreza Compact Sedan Review
2014 Subaru Impreza Sedan Review: Introduction
The 2014 Subaru Impreza sedan is a compact car that finds itself in an unusual position. Completely redesigned a mere two years ago in order to finally offer class-competitive fuel mileage without giving up its standard all-wheel drive package, the Subaru Impreza is facing a small car market that has pushed relentlessly forward in terms of both upscale creature comforts and available in-car technologies. This includes luminaries like the Ford Focus and the Hyundai Elantra, as well as recently-refreshed vehicles such as the Toyota Corolla and the Mazda Mazda3. The Impreza is in tough to impress from the middle of the pack, and while I'm well aware of the advantages it offers northern dwellers facing a snow-packed winter, I recently spent a week with the sedan to see whether that appeal was universal enough to stand out in more gentle climes.
