2014 Subaru Impreza vs. 2014 Toyota Prius c Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Subaru Impreza offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Prius c. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Prius c.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Subaru Impreza as you will with the Toyota Prius c, 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 Subaru Impreza will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Prius c. 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 Toyota Prius c have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Impreza is much wider than the Toyota Prius c, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Toyota Prius c.

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

Handling
The Subaru Impreza has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Prius c, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru Impreza has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius c. 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 Subaru Impreza and the Toyota Prius c.

Warranty
The Subaru Impreza comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius c.
