The Subaru Impreza WRX ranks as one of the best overall small cars in Canada, as well as one of the best sporty cars in the small car class.
Interior and Design: The sporty design of the WRX is mirrored by the interior, which is clean and functional but not luxurious. Head and leg room are ample for most drivers, and the seat design accommodates most body types. Visibility is excellent. Road noise in the WRX is fairly high, not uncommon in a sporty car. The WRX is available in both a sedan and a wagon.
Handling and Power: The sporty feel of the WRX continues into the power; a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine puts out 265 HP, which is plenty of power to get this small car moving quickly. Handling is smooth, tight, and responsive, and the car corners well at top speeds.
Fuel Economy: The Subaru WRX averages about 25 US mpg, or 9.41 L/100 km, a decent number considering the powerful turbocharged engine. The turbocharged engine requires premium fuel, however, which increases the cost of ownership somewhat.
Overall: For those seeking a sporty small car at a reasonable price point, the Subaru WRX is a great pick.
