Car and Driver 2012 Subaru Impreza First Impressions

Before delving deeper into Subaruís latest offering, I think itís important to set the stage by declaring that the new Impreza is Canadaís least expensive all-wheel drive vehicle. With a starting MSRP of $19,995 for the 4-door sedan variant, Subaru is sending winter packing with arguably the best and least costly passenger-car AWD system in the biz.

Subaruís setup isnít one of the reactionary types, which redirect power from the front wheels to the rear when slippage is detected. Rather itís a proactive, fully-engaged system that Subaru refers to as a symmetrical full-time AWD.

I have off-road tested this technology in the past and found it quite remarkable, and well beyond the ďslip and gripĒ variety that is most often found in the entry-level AWD segment. Not only are the benefits of Subaruís system derived off-road and in ice and snow, they deliver on clear pavement as well.
