Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Impreza than the Toyota 86, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota 86.

Convenience
With the Subaru Impreza you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Toyota 86, 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). The Toyota 86 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Subaru Impreza, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota 86 will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
The Toyota 86 is about the same width as the Subaru Impreza. If you go with the Toyota 86, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Toyota 86 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Subaru Impreza.

Handling
The Toyota 86 has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Impreza, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota 86 has a much more powerful engine than the Subaru Impreza. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Toyota 86 has less seating than the Subaru Impreza, making the Subaru Impreza the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Toyota 86 has significantly less cargo room than the Subaru Impreza, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Toyota 86 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Impreza.
