TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Subaru Impreza blends sensible road manners with all-wheel drive and a digestible price. It's right in line with compact competitors, all of which offer something different in the segment. The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta is a decent compact car—one in a crowded field, without a "killer app."
