2014 Dodge Avenger vs. 2014 Subaru Impreza Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Avenger than the Subaru Impreza. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Avenger, drivers may find the Subaru Impreza a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Dodge Avenger 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 Dodge Avenger 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 Destination Charge for the Dodge Avenger is much higher than that for the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Avenger is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Avenger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Avenger transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Subaru Impreza.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Avenger has a much more powerful engine than the Subaru Impreza. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Avenger and the Subaru Impreza. The Dodge Avenger has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Impreza.

Warranty
The Dodge Avenger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Impreza.
