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

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 Corolla, 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 Corolla. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Corolla.

Dimensions
The Subaru Impreza is about the same width as the Toyota Corolla. When looking at overall length, the Subaru Impreza takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Corolla.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Subaru Impreza transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Corolla.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru Impreza is somewhat more powerful than the Toyota Corolla.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Subaru Impreza and the Toyota Corolla. The Subaru Impreza has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Corolla, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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