2017 Subaru Impreza vs. 2017 Toyota Corolla


 So you've narrowed down the field of compact sedans in the maddening search for your next vehicle. It's come down to two options: the 2017 Subaru Impreza and the 2017 Toyota Corolla. A cursory comparison might have you thinking that they are in a dead heat. But a deeper look reveals a number of key differences.

First of all, 4 is better than 2. Everyone knows that...at least when it comes to powering your vehicle in icy and snowy conditions. The Subaru Impreza comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. This system means more controlled acceleration and better traction, in the the snow, sure, but really, in all kinds of weather. The Toyota Corolla comes standard in FWD without even the option to upgrade to all-wheel drive.

Put the Subaru Impreza and the Toyota Corolla side-by-side and the Impreza shines brighter both in terms of efficiency and power. While the Corolla offers 128 lb-ft. of torque, the Impreza doles out 145 lb-ft. of torque. Despite the power difference, the Impreza boasts a highway fuel economy of 38 mpg, beating the Corolla by a solid 2 mpg.

Beyond better efficiency, more power and better traction, do you also prefer a lower starting price? In that case, the 2017 Subaru Impreza may just be the perfect choice for you.
