2016 Nissan Sentra 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 Nissan Sentra than the Subaru Impreza. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Nissan Sentra, drivers may find the Subaru Impreza a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Sentra 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 Nissan Sentra 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 Nissan Sentra will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
The Nissan Sentra is a little wider than the Subaru Impreza, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Nissan Sentra takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Nissan Sentra doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru Impreza.

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

Performance
The Nissan Sentra 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 Nissan Sentra and the Subaru Impreza. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Nissan Sentra will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Subaru Impreza.

Warranty
The Nissan Sentra comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Impreza.
