2015 Ford Fiesta vs. 2015 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
The Subaru Impreza requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford Fiesta, 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). Based on MSRP, the Ford Fiesta is clearly a better financial choice over 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. The Ford Fiesta is slightly shorter than the Subaru Impreza, which may make it easier to park.

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 a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Impreza.

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