2015 Ford Fiesta vs. 2014 Subaru Impreza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Impreza than the Ford Fiesta, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Fiesta.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fiesta as you will with the Subaru Impreza, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Fiesta will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Fiesta and the Subaru Impreza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Fiesta is a little narrower than the Subaru Impreza, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Ford Fiesta, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
The Ford Fiesta has much less torque than the Subaru Impreza, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Fiesta has about the same turning radius as the Subaru Impreza, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Fiesta 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 Fiesta and the Subaru Impreza. The Ford Fiesta has significantly less cargo room than the Subaru Impreza, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Ford Fiesta comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Impreza.
