Kelley Blue Book calls the sedan and hatchback duo an "unbeatable combination" of safety, capability, reliability, and long-term value. The car's standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, a KBB favorite, is "a must," the expert adds, for anyone heading down bad roads through worse weather. But what else makes the new Subaru Impreza a standout among new Subaru cars and SUVs for drivers here in Albuquerque?

For one, EyeSight® driver-assistance technology, another favorite of the dot-com car research expert and one it calls "one of the best around." It's a suite of safety features that can put a safe distance between you and other drivers, help you stay in lane and on course, and assist you in remaining clear of a potential accident in advance. For the new model year, it's newly available on every trim. In 2019 Impreza Limited, it's standard, as are reverse automatic braking and high-beam assist.

Of course, adds the reviewer, the new Impreza is also comfortably roomy, with "excellent legroom both front and rear," owing, we can add, to a spacious 96.8-to-100.9-cubic-foot cabin, depending on your choice of trim. Bring a selection of cloth or leather upholstery into the equation, which comes available heated up front, and you'll see what we mean. The car even gets great fuel economy, too -- according to EPA estimates, up to 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg across highways with a CVT. This isn't to mention that it's leading-edge on entertainment and connectivity tech, too, home to a selection of four STARLINK&#trade; multimedia infotainment systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
