The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Standard all-wheel drive and strong performance and safety credentials give the 2011 Subaru Impreza and Outback Sport some meaningful advantages over most other small cars, though poor fuel economy stands as a blemish. The 2011 Suzuki SX4 Crossover remains the most affordable all-wheel-drive car, while the other SX4 models are sporty, well-configured, and a strong value.
