The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer models looks sharp and handles well--and the Ralliart and Evo provide all-wheel-drive performance thrills--but there are enough flaws to limit their appeal. The 2013 Impreza retains the Subaru hallmarks of standard all-wheel drive, practicality, and durability, while packing in more features for the money—and it looks good doing it.
