Quick Specs
7.2
8.4
The 2011 BMW 3-Series continues the tradition of excellent handling, brisk performance, and high quality, though its relatively compact size does result in some compromises.
8.2
The 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX and WRX STI are fast, fun cars to drive in any situation, and they're comfortable, safe, and practical enough for small-family use; poor fuel economy and a lack of automatic transmissions limit its appeal, though.
7.0
The 2011 Nissan Juke is fun to drive, pleasant, and well-equipped. You’ll buy it despite the lousy gas mileage and because of—or despite—its unique looks.
8.2
With strong performance, good practicality, and respectable fuel economy, the attractively styled 2011 Audi A4 strikes a great balance for an everyday-driving sport sedan.
