On snowy and icy roads, vehicles with traction-enhancing all-wheel drive are invaluable. But what if you don't want to get an SUV? Check out the 2019 Subaru Impreza. Not only is it the least expensive all-wheel-drive vehicle on the market, but it's also the only compact sedan to offer AWD — and it's standard.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive delivers secure handling and wet-weather traction
The cabin is quiet, comfortable and surprisingly roomy for a compact car
A healthy selection of advanced safety features is available on most trims
Available manual transmission for those who want to row their own gears

Cons
Slow acceleration, even with this generation's more powerful engine
Transmission is loud under heavy loads
Interior materials are lower-quality compared to many rivals
Hard to match fuel economy estimates in the real world

By:

Comfortable, spacious interior
Not a bad value

Cons
Interior could be more imaginative
Manual transmission lacks 6th gear
Won’t win a drag race
Crosstrek offers more flair
