The 2014 Subaru Impreza stands more or less alone in the segment as an economy car with standard all-wheel drive.
Most don't even have it as an option.The Mazda 3 has been redesigned for 2014, and it's a real looker with a lot of available technology and one of the sportiest driving feels available.
The Kia Forte costs less, but offers more options in a sleeker package with better fuel economy.
The VW Golf and Jetta both offer TDI clean-diesel models, which may appeal to some of Subaru's more earth-conscious shoppers.
Other alternatives include the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Focus.
