Compact? The 2014 Subaru Impreza Feels Bigger than it Is.

Even those who normally scoff at compact cars and wonder why anyone would own one let alone give awards for cars in this category need to take notice of the 2014 Subaru Impreza.  This car has already been noticed and awarded by some of the industry leaders when it comes to cars, having earned the Consumer Reports Award for Best Compact Car as well as the 2014 Best Resale Value Award Winner from Kelley Blue Book.

The Impreza is the best choice for anyone who lives in a climate that experiences all four seasons of weather change and better handling and traction is needed.  This is easily achieved through the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) which is not available on many other vehicles in this class.  In the case of the shopper who doesn’t actually need the AWD performance, the Impreza might not be the best choice as some of the other models in the class offer better fuel economy, but why give up the peace of mind of the AWD for a few miles per gallon?

From Conservative to Eye-Catching: The 2014 Lexus IS Stands Out

Although Lexus has long been well-known for offering upgraded technology, excellent handling and exceptional cars from a function standpoint, they have always been a bit on the conservative side when it comes to design.  The 2014 Lexus IS is built to dispel this notion of conservative with unique front grill stylings, smooth curves and a beautiful roof line.

Awarded as both one of Kelley Blue Book’s 10 Best LuxuryCars Under $40,000 as well as one of AutoTrader’s Top Seven Entry-Level LuxuryCars, the newly redesigned Lexus IS has turned quite a few heads already.  Offering an upgraded suspension and chassis for 2014 the IS allows for exceptional handling and improved steering over previous models.  Responding quickly to every driver input the steering is agile and with an impressive array of insulation all road noise is left outside the cabin for the driver to enjoy their choice of musical selections and not the noise of the streets.  The Lexus IS is offered  in many versions with a V8 engine options as well as a convertible option making this a very versatile model and one that should please many shoppers.
