Subaru Impreza

Subaru Impreza

The standard Subaru Impreza 2.0i, which boasts a nominal 2 liter petrol engine, has never really gotten the fame and recognition that its rally cousin, the WRT enjoys. Because of this, it hasn't really found a market niche of its own. See, the Impreza is priced higher than competing sedans in its class, but also boasts plenty of brawn under the hood, making it one of the most entertaining small cars to drive in Watertown, Syracuse and Adams, NY. People fail to realize that as the WRT is the first thing that comes to mind when people think of a sporty Subaru.

This is why we, at Fuccillo Imports, decided to see what a used Subaru Impreza was worth for on the tracks of Watertown by testing it out.

The Terrain

You have probably seen the hilly side of Watertown; unpaved roads, dirt tracks and unseen obstacles. Not the ideal place to test out a regular sedan, but well, that's what this test is all about.

Initial Startup

The Impreza's horizontally opposed engine gives it a distinctive growl when accelerating at RPMs above 2500. This horizontally opposed placement is something common to all Subaru models including the legendary WRT. A good 15 minutes were spent having fun with the RPM meter and accelerating from a stand still position.

The Test

You can understand the reservations we had racing a normal 4 door sedan through a track made specifically for rally cars, which is why we decided to keep things lighter at first. We went through the unpaved roads at a speed of around 20miles, and after just 20minutes, heard mechanical clanking within the underbody. Not a good start. Finally, we mustered up the courage to take the Impreza out on the dirt tracks. Surprisingly, the Impreza handled just like its rally cousin would, being able to corner easily through the slippery track. This can be attributed to the AWD power train, which has now become standard for all Subarus. Increasing the speed to 60 also didn't make the Subaru give out any extra lean.

Verdict

While the Subaru Impreza may lack the turbocharged engine and horsepower of the WRT, it was still able to hold its own on the rally tracks, which comes as a surprise given its economical price. For casual users who would like a hint or sportiness, a used Subaru Impreza would serve adequately. For serious rally enthusiasts, however, we would suggest the WRT model. If you are interested, you can find many used Subaru Impreza models at Fuccillo Imports.

Hyundai Accent

Hyundai Accent

The Accent has been Hyundai's most prominent entry into the popular small segment across Watertown, Syracuse and Adams, NY. As such, it is quite different from traditional subcompacts in a variety of ways, the most notable being that it's not a subcompact at all; rather, it has been classified by the EPA as a compact. This means that the Accent boasts the largest interior spaces, legroom and engines among all subcompacts, while being placed at the same price.

Secondly, the equipment list for the Accent rivals that of expensive European and German sedans, which is something we rarely see in a midsized sedan, let alone a compact. The latest Accent goes all out, boasting even more interior room, better performance and upgraded safety features.

Engine

Powering the Accent is a 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine that goes around producing 138hp along with 123 pounds of torque. Compared to others in the subcompact or even compact segment, the horsepower is more than enough to propel the Hyundai across the tracks of Watertown. The high power to weight ratio, on account of the compact's light weight, allows for high fuel efficiency when travelling through rush hours in Adams.

Transmission options are a six speed manual and a six speed automatic, with fuel economy being excellent for both.

Exterior

The Hyundai Accent may be spacey from the inside, but it certainly doesn't show it on the outside. The compact dimensions of the subcompact make parking in compact spots a breeze, which is a huge plus for Syracuse residents. There are two body styles available; a sedan and a hatchback. As expected, the former is a more popular choice for Watertown, Syracuse and Adams, NY residents.

Features

There's just one GLS trim available for the sedan, while the hatchback is offered in the basic GS and fully loaded SE trim. The sedan is packed with features such as air conditioning, power windows, power mirrors, CD deck, six speaker audio system, satellite radio and even iPod and USB support by default. You may upgrade to other options such as alloys, remote entry, better interior materials, adjustable steering column, Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control. The top of the line SE packs all these features as standard.

Come have a look at this excellent value for money compact at Fuccillo Imports, where we regularly stock new and used Hyundai Accent models.

Hyundai Azera

Hyundai Azera

The Hyundai Azera can be seen as a midway cross between the practical Sonata and the high end Genesis, both produced by Hyundai. Though a midsize family sedan itself, it follows Hyundai's age old tradition of being lower priced than others in the entry. As such, it competes directly with the compact segment, giving the Corolla and others a tough time. What this means for you, the consumer, is that you'll be getting a full sized sedan for the price of a compact; needless to say, the Azera is one of the best cars you can buy today in Watertown, Adams or Syracuse, NY, offering a level of luxury, comfort and value no other car can offer.

Buying a used Hyundai Azera has its own risks, as many come in the market without prior checking or have had collision histories in the past. This is why Fuccillo Imports makes sure all of the used Hyundai Azera models in our stock are pre-checked before being allotted.

Engine

The sedan is powered by a 3.3 liter V6 that has the capacity to produce close to 300horses, something that was previously limited to only the Genesis in the Hyundai line. Hyundai went a different way for the transmission this time around, using a six speed automatic transmission that also has manual shift capability. This allows Watertown, Adams and Syracuse residents to save up on gas by shifting manually during rush hours, while being able to drive comfortably on the automatic for longer trips. Only a FWD system is available, but it does the job quite well, giving adequate fuel economy as well as high power.

Exterior

The Azera gives off a premium business like feel at first glance, with its wide grille and angular broad headlights. The midsized sedan does seem pretty huge, especially in terms of longitudinal length.

Features

The most basic trim of the Azera also comes feature packed with niceties such as remote entry, blind monitoring collision avoidance systems, climate control, leather stitched interior equipment, temperature controlled seats, Bluetooth connectivity, parking camera, Hyundai's own emergency call system, a fully fledged audio system and CD deck. Upgrading to the Limited will get you even more features such as xenon lights, electronically movable steering column and even driver memory settings.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata

Mazda Miata MX5

We still remember like it was yesterday when the first Mazda Miata MX-5 made its way from Watertown to Syracuse and Adams, NY in the 90s. The fiery red little roadster seemed something out of a dodging car rink, having dimensions compact enough to fit through the narrowest alleys. This wasn't your conventional roadster, as prior to the Mazda's debut, these mid-engine gas guzzlers used to sport beastly V8s while having rugged underlying mechanics.

Something Different

The Mazda Miata MX-5 was a breath of fresh air, giving the average Watertown buyer a roadster that was both entertaining to drive yet practical for the usual grocery commutes across Syracuse and Adams, NY. As expected, the Miata was a huge hit, being one of the top selling cars of the decade. Mazda used to go out of stock within a matter of hours, as consumers had their cash in hand to get a piece of the roadster fever.

The Best Value For Money!

Though the Miata craze may have subsided, the MX5 still continues to be a great and unique option for anyone looking for a budget roadster to drive around on the weekends. A used Mazda Miata MX5 from Fuccillo Imports would get you even more value for money, thanks to the low price of used ones as compared to new.

However, a used Mazda Miata MX5 may be tricky to get, as many have been fitted with aftermarket parts and have repaired engines. This is why Fuccillo Imports makes sure that all the Miatas featured within their lot are thoroughly checked and hassle free.

Fuccillo Imports" Promise

We, at Fuccillo Imports, go through an extensive checking process involving an examination of both the mechanics as well as body work to ensure that our customers do not have to go through any hassles or problems when they buy from us.

Due to the high sales volumes of the Miatas, you will also be able to find many cheap spare parts in the market, which is not usually the case with most conventional roadsters. Along with that, you'll also be able to find a used Mazda Miata MX5 according to your preferences at Fuccillo Imports, the best place to buy used Mazda, Hyundai and Subaru models in Watertown, Syracuse and Adams, NY!
