The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.6
7.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

The Mitsubishi Lancer might be positioned and priced as an economy car, but with the right equipment, it can feel like a lot more. 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.
