Quick Specs
7.8
8.4
The 2010 BMW 3-Series upholds its legacy of superb handling, excellent performance, and high quality, though small rear seats and fussy controls are minor flaws.
8.6
The 2010 Audi A4 satisfies a wide spectrum of luxury-car shoppers; the optional Drive Select system's an expensive, unnecessary distraction.
8.2
The 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX and STI may not appeal to everyone; a lack of refinement and poor fuel economy make these poor daily drivers. Despite this, both cars are extremely entertaining, very comfortable, and safe.
7.2
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.
