2016 Subaru Impreza vs 2016 Toyota Corolla

Serving Tallahassee, Monticello, and Crawfordville, FL

We are so confident in the reliability, safety, and value offered by the 2016 Subaru Impreza that we are happy to provide you with this comparison in which we look at the features offered by one of its strongest competitors, the 2016 Toyota Corolla. Here we will take a close look at issues important to our customers in and around Tallahassee, FL such as power, performance, technology, and safety. We are sure you will come to the same conclusion as we did, the Impreza comes out a clear winner.

Performance

No one in and around Tallahassee truly expects a compact car to have much in the way of power or performance. However, the 2016 Impreza offers impressive performance with its 2.0 liter flat four-cylinder engine that develops 148 hp and delivers 145 lb-ft of torque to the standard all-wheel drive system via a 6-speed manual gearbox. This "Boxer" engine easily outperforms the smaller engine found in the Corolla.

The 2016 Toyota Corolla base model sports a smaller 1.8 liter inline four-cylinder engine that manages only 132 hp. This inline four develops a mere 128 lb-ft of torque that is delivered to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. The Corolla is not available in all-wheel drive. The symmetrical all-wheel drive found in the Subaru offers much better overall traction when driving conditions are less than favorable.

Interior

Although compact sedans have traditionally not been known for their space, the 2016 Subaru sets out to destroy this notion by offering more overall interior space than the 2016 Toyota. Not only does the Impreza offer more leg room for those in the front seat, but it also offers more head room than found in the Corolla. Despite the extra interior space, the Impreza offers a smaller exterior footprint, making it much easier to find a parking spot in crowded cities and shopping centers.

The interior of the 2016 Impreza offers seating that is comfortable and offers plenty of support for long trips. In fact, the rear seat is rated as one of the roomiest in its class. Offered as both a sedan and a hatchback, the sedan offers 12 cubic feet of cargo space, while the hatchback offers 22.5 cubic feet with the back seat up and 52.4 cubic feet with it down. The Impreza also offers a full complement of power accessories, a rearview camera, and full Bluetooth connectivity for handsfree calling and streaming your favorite music.

Safety

Both Subaru and Toyota have an impressive safety record with a steady stream of safety innovation. Both offer four wheel antilock brakes, a host of airbags intended to protect every occupant, and electronic traction and stability controls. The Impreza also offers adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and a forward collision warning and mitigation system with automatic braking. Subaru also offers the Starlink Connected Services system that comes with a suite of safety apps including emergency assistance, collision notification, stolen vehicle locator, and remote door and trunk unlocking.
