Comparison Review

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