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

Convenience
With the Toyota Corolla Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Impreza, due to its tank size and 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).
