2014 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2014 Subaru Impreza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Cruze offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Subaru Impreza. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Cruze.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Subaru Impreza, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Impreza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze and the Subaru Impreza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Cruze and the Subaru Impreza do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Cruze has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Impreza, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Cruze has less horsepower than the Subaru Impreza, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Subaru Impreza. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Cruze will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Subaru Impreza.
