Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

One of the most complete electric cars money can buy. Superb build quality, and decent to drive.

Pros
Beautifully built intuitive cabin,
effortless performance,
exceptionally cool image,

Pros
Performance Pack adjustable dampers are too firm out of the box
the look on Tesla drivers’ faces

By: 
topgear.com

The Polestar 2 is an excellent luxury electric vehicle, even if it's not as visually exciting as trendier alternatives.

Pros
Notable athleticism and quickness,
cabin materials and quality are indeed luxurious,
surprisingly intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Exterior design isn't exactly daring,
race-inspired dampers require manual adjustments,
estimated driving range is underwhelming.

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:

The 2019 Subaru Impreza is a sensible, right-price, low-compromise compact car.

Pros
AWD standard
Good road manners
Great safety record
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
