2017 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2017 Subaru Impreza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Sonata offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Impreza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Hyundai Sonata will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Subaru Impreza.

Convenience
The Hyundai Sonata 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 Hyundai Sonata will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Subaru Impreza, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Sonata and the Subaru Impreza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Sonata is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Sonata, which is slightly longer than the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Sonata does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Subaru Impreza.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Sonata 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 Hyundai Sonata and the Subaru Impreza.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Sonata than that of the Subaru Impreza.
