2016 Ford C-Max Hybrid vs. 2016 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 Ford C-Max Hybrid than the Subaru Impreza. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford C-Max Hybrid and the Subaru Impreza in the front seats.

Convenience
The Subaru Impreza requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, 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 Ford C-Max Hybrid 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 Ford C-Max Hybrid will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Ford C-Max Hybrid 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 Ford C-Max Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford C-Max Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru Impreza.

Handling
The Ford C-Max Hybrid has a significantly larger turning radius than the Subaru Impreza, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford C-Max Hybrid 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 Ford C-Max Hybrid and the Subaru Impreza. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Ford C-Max Hybrid as you will in the Subaru Impreza.

Warranty
The Ford C-Max Hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Impreza.
