2010 Subaru Impreza Review

The 2010 Subaru Impreza is one of the only cars in the class with standard all-wheel drive, but with lower fuel economy ratings than its competitors, the Impreza may not be the best pick.

Pros & Cons

  • Standard all-wheel drive
  • Good handling and engine power
  • Many standard safety features and high safety scores
  • Poor gas mileage for the class

2010 Subaru Impreza Overview

Along with its standard all-wheel drive, the 2010 Subaru Impreza comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that reviewers said is powerful enough for daily driving. Opt for the GT, WRX or WRX STI models and that 2.5-liter engine gets a turbocharger and more power. One downside to having all-wheel drive and peppy engines is that the Impreza only gets up to 20/27 mpg city/highway. Those ratings drop if you choose one of the turbocharged engines.

The base Impreza comes with a lot of standard features for the class. It has air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and door locks and a four-speaker stereo. Higher trims and option packages add navigation, Bluetooth, satellite radio and steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls. The Impreza also comes with safety features like anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist, electronic stability control and traction control, which a lot of competitors don’t have as standard equipment.

Other Cars to Consider

If you want a sedan or hatchback that’s fun to drive and you don’t need all-wheel drive, consider the 2010 Mazda3.  The Mazda3 has higher fuel economy ratings than the Impreza, but the base model comes with fewer standard interior and safety features.

All-wheel drive isn’t standard on the 2010 Toyota Matrix, but you can get a model that’s equipped with it. The Matrix compensates for its low-for-the-class fuel economy ratings with a spacious interior. The rear seats are comfortable, and there’s plenty of cargo space. The Matrix’s list of standard interior and safety features is comparable to the Impreza’s.
