Impreza TS sedan ... other cars to look at?

I'm looking at getting a new car. I test drove an Impreza TS sedan, and I loved it. But the price on the base model is even pushing my limits. What other cars are comparible to that one that I should be looking at for a little less money? AWD is not all that important, but I do want something similar in size, with a 5-speed tranny. Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry...

I'm looking for decent reliability, around CDN$18,000 or less. Fuel efficiency over power, a touch of comfort and good looks.

Thanks again

Is that new as in new, or are you open to used cars?
If you're wanting a brand new, medium sized sedan then you could look into a base level Toyota Avensis or VW Jetta. Don't forget about haggling.

Well, $18,000 Isn't really that much money to play with for a new car however as snoopewite says, used cars are another matter and you will probably find a fairly cheap used Impreza for that, I say shop around the used market and see what it has to offer!
