The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Scion iM looks the part of the youth-oriented sporty hatchback, but doesn't drive the part. The 2016 Subaru Impreza is the compact car to choose when you require all-wheel drive for year-round traction but don't want or need the gas-mileage hit that comes with boxy SUVs and rugged trail ability.
