Standard all-wheel drive is always smart. Subaru does it with style on every one of its Impreza variants with rally-inspired Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Standard awd, 4-wheel disc brakes and stability control make the base Impreza 2.5i sedan a safer car, the 5-door Impreza Outback Sport confident when the pavement turns to dirt, and the turbocharged 2.5GT a sportier handling car. Uptuned versions of the Impreza’s 2.5-liter flat-4 allow the Impreza WRX (265 bhp, 17-in. wheels) and the 5-door WRX STI (305 bhp, 6-speed manual gearbox, 18-in. wheels) to face its sport-compact rival Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. For 2010, a new grille and available navigation system with Bluetooth capability are the highlights.
Land Rover's flagship has been reborn, the new fourth-generation Range Rover hitting showrooms in December 2012. A completely new vehicle, it now has an aluminum unibody chassis for a huge 700-lb. weight savings. That means more performance and less fuel burn, especially with a new 8-speed ZF transmission behind the naturally aspirated or supercharged 5.0-liter V-8s. An upgraded air suspension and the reduced weight give even better handling with no degradation in ride quality. Inside there’s more room, more sumptuous wood and leather elegance, and less noise thanks to laminated front and side glass. A split, power-folding tailgate allows easy cargo and picnicking access. And yes, all the off-road prowess remains, although that might not matter much to this clientele.
