 Pros The Subaru Impreza WRX 4-Door received the highest-possible rating of "Good" in the frontal-offset, side-impact and roof strength tests from the IIHS. This, combined with its other numerous safety features, makes it quite impressive and family-friendly.

 Pros Overall, this Subaru is family-friendly, reliable, and stylish. It also comes at an affordable starting price of $25,595.

 Pros The additional power the WRX 5-Door Sedan brings is enough to keep us on our toes, but not enough to dampen our luxurious Sunday afternoon drive.

 Pros Overall, the Subaru Impreza WRX 5-Door Sedan strikes a positive chord in all of the important areas while being speedy and efficient. While it may not be the most imposing vehicle you've ever driven, it certainly won't be the least impressive either. And, its standard AWD will only help in undesirable weather conditions, of course.

 Pros The cabin's technological features are quite striking. These include: an AM/FM stereo and CD player with MP3/WMA capability, 3.5mm aux input jack six speakers, a USB port, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free phone connectivity, and iPod control capability. The 4-door sedan is also pre-wired for SIRIUS and XM satellite radio systems

 Cons The only real issues we can find with the SRX are linked to its ties to the 2.5i models. There seem to be some unresolved issues dating back to that time. For instance, the cabin is filled with hard plastics that aren't of the best quality, and the touchscreen controls can be frustrating to use. Subaru's touch-screen systems have always been a bit difficult to use, and this one seems to follow suit. The audio system also seems to be lacking in terms of quality.

 Cons Though the Subaru WRX is a joy to drive, it can be frustrating to operate in general. So, is remarkable performance at an affordable price your goal, or is simple usability on the top of your list? You'll have to decide that for yourself.
