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

Convenience
The Toyota Corolla Hatchback requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Subaru Impreza, 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). Whether you pick the Subaru Impreza or the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, it's going to cost you about the same.

The Subaru Impreza carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Corolla Hatchback.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Subaru Impreza doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Corolla Hatchback.
