Subaru Impreza vs Toyota Corolla

Safety

The thrill of life is the unexpected – from the ups and downs to the twists and turns in the road before you. So that you can feel confident behind the wheel, we've taken safety into our own hands. From top to bottom and front to back, the Impreza is fortified with the most advanced safety features.

Go ahead and have fun on the road because we've got your back. With a standard rear-vision camera, the Impreza keeps an eye on what's behind you. Plus with seven standard airbags and a redesigned ring-shaped reinforcement frame, you and your passengers will feel completely protected.

Now with the available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, you'll always have an extra set of eyes on the road to keep the fun times rolling. From pre-collision breaking to adaptive cruise control, Subaru has taken safety to a whole new level.

For Subaru, safety doesn't end on the production line. Even after you drive off the lot, your safety is still our priority. That's why every Impreza comes with 24-hour roadside assistance for 3 years or 36,000 miles.

With safety at the forefront of its design, it's no wonder the Impreza has been an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 9 years running.

The 2017 Impreza certainly does not sacrifice aesthetics—its structural redesign features a sculpted look and a wider, longer body—complementing unrivaled safety features with a stylish new look.

Performance


A vehicle's performance speaks volumes about the brand's overall philosophy. At Subaru, we believe that life is too short to be wasted. That's the reason we designed the Impreza for the young hearted; for those who refuse to take no for an answer.

Every Impreza comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the Subaru Boxer® Engine, providing you with maximum control and power behind the wheel—and more horsepower than the Toyota Corolla. Whenever you're on the road, you'll have the will power and the vehicle power you need for the journey ahead.

The Impreza gets 37 highway MPG1, making it easy to push the limits. Plus, every 2017 Impreza achieves Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) status due to its low emissions. Life has never felt as good as it does in the Impreza!

Unlike the Impreza, the Toyota Corolla only comes as a front-wheel drive vehicle. With just two wheels in control at all times, you won't feel as safe in your vehicle. Why surrender all-wheel drive control? For the young and the young at heart, confidence behind the wheel is key to finding thrill in the unexpected.

Technology



If you’re going to push the limits in your life, you need a vehicle that isn’t afraid to do the same. The Impreza makes the best travelling companion, bringing you almost endless entertainment and information options. The standard StarlinkTM in-vehicle technology features Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM, Pandora®, iHeart® Radio, StitcherTM, AhaTM, and much more—including an all-new, built-in and voice-activated navigation system powered by TomTom. Everything you could possibly need to access is just a finger swipe away on the LCD touchscreen display.

The base model Corolla’s entertainment system is a complete downgrade from the Impreza’s. The standard touchscreen display and the plethora of apps are replaced with a basic audio system. The most advanced piece of equipment is the USB connection, which is standard on most new vehicles on the market today. You’re at the point where you want to live life to the fullest. Why should you make an exception with the vehicle you choose?

Passenger Space


Subaru knows that in today’s world, one size most certainly does not fit all. That’s the reason we’ve designed two body styles for the Impreza: 4-door and 5-door. Whatever style your heart chooses, you can’t be steered in the wrong direction.

For a compact car, the Impreza offers a surprisingly generous amount of passenger space. The 4-door and 5-door have a passenger volume of 99.8 cubic feet and 100.9 cubic feet respectively. This is yet another way the Impreza pushes its boundaries and overtakes the competition, surpassing the Toyota Corolla in interior space—an innovation of the 2017 model and a mark that sets the all-new Impreza apart as the number one passenger volume vehicle in its class.

Every Impreza comes standard with roof-racking capability, providing the opportunity for even more storage outside the vehicle.
