Subaru Impreza vs. Toyota Corolla Sedan

  • Though the Corolla may edge the Impreza out on price, the Impreza offers a better all-around value for performance: only Subaru's sedan offers standard All-Wheel Drive; that's not even an option on the Toyota car
  • The Impreza's efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder creates more horsepower and more torque than the Corolla's meager 1.8-liter engine, but still manages to boast near-identical fuel economy estimates in both city and highway
  • While the Subaru Impreza offers a five-door hatchback option, along with a variety of affordable and well-equipped trim levels, the Toyota Corolla falls flat with a mere four doors--and no more

Subaru Impreza vs. Honda Civic Sedan

  • These two sedans are near neck-and-neck in terms of price and performance--but when it comes to value, Subaru's standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and available hatchback body style take the lead once again
  • The 6-speed CVT in the Impreza offers a smoother, easier performance on the road then the seemingly sluggish 2-speed CVT in the Civic
  • Want the very best? Of course you do! You can enjoy a fully-loaded Subaru Impreza for thousands less than similarly-equipped Honda Civic. Get more performance, more options, and more sporty fun for your money

Subaru Impreza vs. Nissan Sentra

  • The Subaru Impreza offers more standard horsepower than the underpowered Sentra
  • Though the sedans' dimensions are similar, the Impreza does give you more passenger volume for increased comfort on longer drives
  • Both of these models have received high marks for safety, but with mere front-wheel drive and fewer available safety systems, the Sentra isn't as family-friendly as the Impreza
  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard on the Subaru Impreza--one of the few compact sedans to offer it
