Comparison Review

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 Prius. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Prius, the Subaru Impreza may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

The Toyota Prius requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Subaru Impreza, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Subaru Impreza is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Prius.

The Subaru Impreza is a little wider than the Toyota Prius, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Subaru Impreza is slightly shorter than the Toyota Prius, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Subaru Impreza does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Subaru Impreza and the Toyota Prius.
