If you’re on a budget but want all-wheel drive (AWD) for optimal traction on slick roads when Mother Nature turns nasty, the Subaru Impreza is the car to beat. Beyond its alluring $19,000...

AWD - a feature you want in Denver.

2016 Subaru Impreza

I first leased my Subaru Impreza in December 2016 and I love it so far. Living in Denver, the all-wheel-drive is amazing to have. Icy, snowy hills have nothing on AWD. It gets you where you need to go in any conditions without being a huge SUV in the city. The heated seats, heated windshield wipers and heated rear-view mirrors are also awesome in the snow. I love the Bluetooth capability and the fact that it has an AUX jack for all my music. The touch screen display is awesome. Subaru's on-road service has also been awesome to have. I love that the boxer engine allows me to go a bit longer between oil changes as well.

This 4 door sedan has All Wheel Drive, which is not always seen with other basic model of cars! Overall wonderful car that runs smooth, has great gas mileage, and is something I can feel safe driving with my family.

2016 Subaru Impreza

This is our second Subaru purchase. We absolutely loved our first Impreza and like the 2nd Impreza just as much. I never thought I'd say this, but we actually had a pleasant experience with the dealership and salesman! Absolutely love the price of these vehicles, the fact that the Imprezas are AWD (and have done wonderful in our Wisconsin winters!), and the lifetime warranty opportunity. These vehicles also have great safety reviews. We initially had two tech issues with our second Impreza and they were fixed promptly and at no charge. I truly have nothing negative to say about our Subaru purchases.

Subaru Forester, safety, comfort, reliability.

2016 Subaru Impreza

I love the reliability of my Subaru Forester. My average mpg is 26. 4, but I do not take long car rides very often. When I am on long highway trips, I get around 30-31 mpg. This car is extremely comfortable and love my leather, heated seats. Heated steering wheels are offered in the Forester touring, which is great for anyone living in cooler climates. Driving my car in the snow is wonderful. I have hit black ice before and felt like I have had great control of the car. I always feel safe in my Subaru Forester!
