Comparison Review

Comfort
The Subaru Impreza WRX will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan 370Z.

Convenience
The Nissan 370Z requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Subaru Impreza WRX, 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). Based on MSRP, the Subaru Impreza WRX is clearly a better financial choice over the Nissan 370Z. 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 WRX and the Nissan 370Z have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Impreza WRX is much slimmer than the Nissan 370Z, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Subaru Impreza WRX, which is slightly longer than the Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Subaru Impreza WRX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan 370Z.
