When your competition is the likes of the Ford Focus, the Mazda 3 and the Hyundai Elantra, you better have your act together and deliver an impressive package.  Well, the 2013 Subaru Impreza is just such a package.

The Impreza has always had the impressive all-wheel drive that has been Subaru’s trademark, and they have always boasted a large interior, great ride quality and competitive fuel economy.  However, not resting on their laurels, the Impreza peopld have now upgraded the standard features as well.  The Impreza may cost a bit more, but considering what you get it just might be well-worth the extra dollars.

The 2013 Impreza has a 2.0-liter, horizonatally-opposed boxer engine that will give you 148 horsepower.  It is matched with a standard five-speed manual transmission, a plus for driving enthusiasts.  You can also opt for a continuously variable transmission if you lean more in that direction.

In the 0-60 testing the Impreza covered the distance in 9.6 seconds, a bit slow for a compact sedan, but not bad considering the all-wheel drive weighs considerably more.  The fuel economy figures are 25/34 for the five-speed manual and 27/36 for the CVT.

Safety features include stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag and front head restraints.  In braking tests the Impreza stopped from 60-0 in 123 feet, an average figure.

Standard features include 15-inch wheels, full power accessories, keyless entry, air-conditioning, cloth upholstery, a trip computer and a four-speaker sound system with CD player.  Nothing out of this world, and certainly nothing flashy….in fact, that might be the best description of the Impreza.  What you get is a great vehicle for any type of road surface and any type of weather; you are buying confidence when you buy a Subaru.
