The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX and STI are fun to drive, tractable in a wide range of conditions, and surprisingly comfortable and versatile; but the lack of an automatic transmission and poor fuel economy are factors that might limit their appeal. The 2013 Mazda 3 drives with a lot more sophistication and verve than you might expect for a small car this affordable, practical, and fuel-efficient.
