Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The WRX might be one of the quickest and most powerful sport compacts available for less than $30,000, but it’s also one of the least civil. A loud cabin, a stiff-legged ride, and a laggy turbocharged engine are some of the WRX’s surlier traits—a legacy of its rally-car roots. Its infotainment system is antiquated, and its interior is drab.

Pros
All-wheel-drive confidence,
powerful turbocharged engine,
great visibility.

Cons
Noisy cabin,
jiggly ride,
no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

The 2018 Subaru WRX looks tame compared to its newest rivals. Step on the gas and you’ll be convinced otherwise.

Pros
Captivating performance
Better sound deadening
Good safety scorecard
Bright, large touchscreen for infotainment
Restrained looks compared to others…

Cons
…that border on boring
Advanced safety options are pricey
No hatchback version anymore
Not very fuel-efficient

The WRX receives a handful of useful changes for 2018, including an updated front-end design, revised suspension and steering tuning, and thicker glass, seals and insulation aimed at better suppressing road noise. Subaru also adds a few new features to its EyeSight safety package.

PROS
In both WRX and WRX STI, acceleration is swift and among best-in-class
Delivers superb handling and steering response on twisting roads
Full-time all-wheel drive enhances traction and performance
Offers several premium safety equipment options

CONS
STI's high-performance suspension makes for a rough ride
Interior quality lags behind competitors
Above-average amounts of wind and road noise

The 2018 Ford Fiesta ranked #5 in Subcompact Cars. Currently the Ford Fiesta has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 70 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Athletic handling
Quick acceleration with ST trim
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Tight rear seats
Below-average cargo room

By: 
usnews.com

A rearview camera is now standard on all 2018 Ford Fiestas, and the standard 3.5-inch central display screen has been replaced with a 4.2-inch screen. The previously optional 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine has been eliminated from the lineup.

PROS
Sporty handling in turns
Well-appointed interior with advanced technology options
ST model's zesty performance

CONS
Ride quality and seat comfort are poor compared to rivals
Limited cargo and rear seat space
