The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Volvo V50 has the efficiency and compactness of a small car with the available safety features and poise of a larger sport wagon. The comfortable 2008 Subaru Impreza has broader appeal than the former model, without losing its personality—and it’s the only small sedan model in its price range with standard all-wheel drive.
