2019 Subaru Impreza vs. the Corolla & Civic in Lafayette

The Subaru Impreza Takes on the Competition

Even surrounded by impressive cars and SUVs in the Lafayette, LA area, the 2019 Subaru Impreza stands out and makes a name for itself as a topnotch compact car option. At Giles Subaru, we can go on and on about why the 2019 Impreza is the perfect car for any Lafayette driver. But, we think you'd be better off if we explained it with a side-by-side comparison.

While the 2019 Toyota Corolla and the 2019 Honda Civic both offer similarly sized options in both the sedan and hatchback style, just like our Impreza, the Subaru offers one key element those other models don't - standard all-wheel drive. In fact, those other cars don't even offer all-wheel drive even as an option.

But, that's not the only way the Impreza goes above and beyond the competition to offer you a better ride. Read on to see other ways our Subaru Impreza outshines these highly competitive models.

The Subaru Impreza vs. the Honda Civic

  • Fuel capacity and range. Lafayette drivers with a long commute will be happy to know they can go a little further on a tank of gas in a 2019 Subaru Impreza than they can in a 2019 Honda Civic. That's because the Impreza can hold more gas per fill up, with a tank that holds 13.2 gallons, compared to just 12.4 gallons for the Honda. Plus, the Subaru averages around 502 miles on the highway per tank of gas, while the Civic averages just around 471 miles on the highway per fill up.
  • Interior space. The Subaru Impreza sedan is also more comfy for your commute than the 2019 Honda Civic sedan. There's more room to stretch your legs with extra legroom in the front seat of the Impreza compared to the Civic, and more headroom is available with the Impreza as well.
  • Technology and connectivity features. As with the Corolla comparison before, the Impreza also offers more standard tech features than the 2019 Honda Civic. In fact, while the 2019 Impreza offers smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a standard touchscreen interface, the base model Civic doesn't have any of these features standard. Lafayette drivers considering the 2019 Civic are forced to move up trim levels, and spend more money, to get the same level of features that are standard on every Subaru Impreza.

The Subaru Impreza vs. the Toyota Corolla

  • Power and drivetrain options. Both the 2019 Impreza and the 2019 Corolla offer standard power from a four-cylinder engine. But, with the Impreza powertrain cranking out 152 horsepower, compared to a base 132 horsepower for the Corolla, you're sure to have more fun behind the wheel of the Subaru over the Toyota. Plus, Subaru understands that some drivers prefer the feel and control of a manual transmission, and they make the Impreza available with a manual option. The Corolla, on the other hand, has no manual transmission available, and is only available with a continuously variable automatic.
  • Standard technology. The 2019 Subaru Impreza also outshines the 2019 Toyota Corolla in terms of tech and features. While every 2019 Impreza has standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, the 2019 Corolla doesn't even offer either feature as an option.
  • Interior space. When it comes to transporting you, and your passengers, in comfort, the Impreza is roomier and more spacious than the Corolla. In fact, the Impreza has more headroom in both the front and backseats than the Toyota, and it offers more shoulder room and more front seat legroom than the Corolla.
