Toyota Corolla 2002-2006

The Corolla has a roomy boot and its noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) has been improved for smoother rides. It is fuel-efficient and the wide spread of torque ensures an easy drive.

Best of all, it doesn’t skimp on safety features. Most Corolla models are equipped with ABS braking, Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), seat belt pre-tensioners and load limiters.

A 1.8 litre fuel-injected four-cylinder petrol engine is fitted in the Ascent, Conquest, Levin and Ultima models with 100 kW and 171 Nm of torque.

Subaru Impreza 2004-2006

Relatively conventional in its appearance, the Subaru Impreza drives and handles well. The AWD brings some added traction to slippery surfaces

The added traction can be especially useful if you live in a region that commonly experiences icy roads such as the Snowy Mountains or Tasmania. The engine is a fuel-efficient, twin-cam 2 litre unit that delivers good power and torque.

Minor issues can be handled by home mechanics and finding spare parts for the Impreza isn’t a pain either.

The interior space is satisfactory, seats are comfortable and it can seat 5 people including the driver.
