2017 Subaru Impreza vs. 2017 Subaru BRZ 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 Subaru Impreza than the Subaru BRZ. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Subaru BRZ.

Convenience
With the Subaru Impreza you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru BRZ, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Subaru Impreza is clearly a better financial choice over the Subaru BRZ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru Impreza and the Subaru BRZ have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Subaru Impreza is about the same width as the Subaru BRZ. If you go with the Subaru Impreza, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Subaru BRZ.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru Impreza is significantly less powerful than the Subaru BRZ. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Subaru Impreza offers greater seating capacity than the Subaru BRZ, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

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