The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
All-wheel drive no longer offered 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.
