Most moms will like the fact that the Impreza has the least horsepower and the best fuel economy of any of these picks. That it isn't the most aggressive off the line won't seem to matter as much when taking advantage of the standard all-wheel drive to sweep the corners. Rack up a few more points with Mom, pointing out that the AWD makes the Impreza more stable in rain and snow.

Bankrate had to opt for the Limited to get all of its must-have features and an extra goodie or two like a backup camera. Along with that came the continuously variable transmission, with six-speed manual mode and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. A 148-horsepower 2-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine supplies the go.
