2017 Ford Focus vs. 2017 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 Focus, 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 Focus.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Focus 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). Whether you pick the Ford Focus or the Subaru Impreza, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Focus will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Ford Focus is slightly shorter than the Subaru Impreza, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
