Buyer's Guide


Although Subaru's lineup is filled mostly by crossovers, it also includes well-known performance cars. Standard AWD, strong safety scores, and good versatility on most models make Subarus popular among diverse demographics.

Least Expensive: Starting below $20,000, the Impreza sedan is the least expensive Subaru on sale. The Crosstrek, which is essentially a lifted Impreza hatchback, is the cheapest Subaru SUV with prices starting at about $23,000.

Most Expensive: In range-topping Touring trim, the Ascent three-row SUV is the most expensive Subaru at about $46,000. However, the S209, a high-performance limited-edition version of the WRX STI, commanded a nearly $65,000 purchase price.

Most Fun to Drive: With AWD grip and turbocharged zing, the rally-inspired WRX and WRX STI are icons of compact car performance. The BRZ coupe, which Subaru jointly developed with Toyota, is also tons of fun. It handles sublimely—but it could use a few extra horsepower.

Most Popular: Somewhere between a crossover and a wagon, the Outback blurs segment lines to great effect: it's Subaru's longtime best-seller. However, the Forester, which takes a more conventional compact SUV approach, follows closely in second place.
