The Subaru Impreza WRX is a blisteringly quick small car that garners notice from even exotic sports car drivers. Subaru's history of rallying comes through with this car's turbocharged engine, racing seats and capable all-wheel drive system. But underneath all of the spoilers and rally-inspired styling, there's a reasonably practical small sedan or hatchback that could serve as daily transportation.
The WRX is based on the last-generation Impreza and shares that model's reasonable amount of room. It comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 265 horsepower and a five-speed manual transmission only. All-wheel drive, a Subaru hallmark, is standard. Also included are features such as power windows, locks with remote keyless entry, power mirrors, automatic climate control with air conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth and an iPod connector, split-folding rear seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.Read more »

Similar performance and money but still has harsh ride and lacks hatchback option.
Quick, refined and comfortable but much more expensive.
Well-made, flexible interior and much more refined driving experience at the cost of performance and excitement.
Well priced, better in-car technology, but not as fast and comes only in front-wheel drive.
