The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Dodge Caliber has room to spare for adults-but it's short on refinement, value, and safety equipment. With its standard all-wheel-drive system, the 2010 Subaru Impreza automatically has a leg up over many of its rivals in the small car segment. Throw in its strong performance and safety credentials and the Subaru is hard to beat.
