2018 Subaru Impreza vs. the Corolla & Civic in Lafayette

The Subaru Impreza Takes on the Competition

A stylish, compact car that can be configured to your specifications? One that has standard all-wheel drive and a slew of great features? If you're wondering where you can find such a versatile and multifaceted car, look no further than the collection of new Subaru Impreza models we have available here at Giles Subaru.

The Subaru Impreza is small, but it makes a big impression, thanks to its eye-catching style and impressive performance. It comes in your choice of either a sedan or a hatchback, and it offers drivers a ride that is comfortable, refined, and fun. While we know the Subaru Impreza is a great small car for any driver in Louisiana, we also know there are many other options available. So, we've compared our Impreza to the competition, to illustrate how the Subaru model is always a superior choice.

We've done our homework, comparing our Subaru Impreza to the similarly-sized Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. To see how these three compact cars stack up against each other, read on. See for yourself how, while all three models mentioned here are available as either a four-door sedan or a four-door hatchback, the Subaru Impreza stands out from the crowd in a number of key areas.

The Subaru Impreza vs. the Honda Civic

  • Drivetrain. Of course, as a Subaru model, the Impreza comes with standard all-wheel drive. Regardless of whether you go for the Impreza sedan, or the Impreza hatchback, look for your car to come with signature Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Honda Civic, on the other hand, doesn't have standard all-wheel drive, nor does it even offer all-wheel drive anywhere in its lineup.
  • Passenger space. The Subaru Impreza offers you, and your passengers, a little more room than the Honda Civic. In fact, thanks to a recent redesigned look from Honda, which includes a dramatically sloping roofline, the headroom and shoulder room in the backseat of the Civic have shrunk, meaning passengers in the Impreza enjoy more breathing space than they would in the competition.
  • Standard features. The Subaru Impreza gives Louisiana drivers more of the features that they want right out of the gate than the Honda Civic, too. For example, every Impreza comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. But, the Civic doesn't have it available until higher up the list of trim levels, meaning you have to spend more money to get the same amenities you get automatically in the Impreza.

The Subaru Impreza vs. the Toyota Corolla

  • Powertrain. The Subaru Impreza is more powerfully equipped than the Toyota Corolla. Every Impreza comes with a 152-horsepower four-cylinder engine, while the Corolla is equipped with either a 132-horsepower or a 140-horsepower four-cylinder, neither of which are as powerful as the Subaru model.
  • Passenger space. The Subaru Impreza gives you more room than the Toyota Corolla. For example, the Impreza sedan has more headroom in the front and back, more front legroom, and more shoulder room in the front and back, than the Toyota Corolla sedan.
  • All-wheel drive. As with the Honda Civic comparison before it, the Subaru Impreza also beats the Toyota Corolla when it comes to drivetrain. Every Impreza comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, while the Corolla doesn't offer all-wheel drive anywhere in its lineup of trims and engine options.
