Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Subaru WRX STI. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Subaru WRX STI.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Impala you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru WRX STI, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Impala will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru WRX STI. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Impala and the Subaru WRX STI have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Chevrolet Impala is much wider than the Subaru WRX STI, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Impala, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Subaru WRX STI.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chevrolet Impala doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru WRX STI.

Handling
The Chevrolet Impala has a larger turning radius than the Subaru WRX STI, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chevrolet Impala and the Subaru WRX STI.

Utility
