When you take a close look at both these cars' technology, comfort and performance features, it's easy to see why the 2019 Subaru Impreza gives you more value for less money.

2019 Subaru Impreza vs. 2019 Toyota Corolla: Interior Comfort

WIth 99.8 cubic feet of passenger volume inside, the 2019 Subaru Impreza is a compact sedan that feels more like a mid-size when you climb inside. The 2019 Toyota Corolla gives you just 97.5 cubic feet, so folks won't have quite as much room to spread out.

Furthermore, while both of these cars are affordable compact sedans, there are some luxurious options you'll only find on the 2019 Subaru Impreza. Unlike the 2019 Toyota Corolla, the new Impreza can be equipped with genuine leather upholstery, an 8" touchscreen infotainment display and aluminium sport pedal covers. When you're looking for something a little more sporty, a little more premium -- without breaking the bank -- your dollar goes further with the 2019 Subaru Impreza.

The unique design of the BOXER engine is unlike any other motor in the industry.

2019 Subaru Impreza vs. 2019 Toyota Corolla: Drive Quality

With only 132 standard horsepower, the 2019 Toyota Corolla provides the power you expect from a city-friendly econobox, but that's about it. Powered by the legendary BOXER® engine design, the 2019 Subaru Impreza makes 152 standard horsepower! That means you'll have more gumption for highway merging, passing and cruising.

But the engine isn't all that makes your drive better in the 2019 Subaru Impreza. It also comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that improves your grip in wet weather and on unpaved roads. And since it comes with a truly independent suspension at all four wheels, you'll glide over speed bumps, pavement seams and road imperfections. The 2019 Toyota Corolla, for its part, has a torsion beam suspension that means you'll feel more bumps, and it's front-wheel drive only.


The durable reinforced frame of the 2019 Subaru Impreza recieved industry-leading safety awards.

2019 Subaru Impreza vs. 2019 Toyota Corolla: Safety Awards

The not-for-profit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety carries out crash tests on new passenger vehicles and gives awards to the most exceptional performers. The 2019 Toyota Corolla received fine crash test scores, but it wasn't enough to impress the IIHS. They gave the 2019 Toyota Corolla sedan no safety awards (the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback earned the 2019 Top Safety Pick award, but, unlike the Subaru Impreza 5-door, it's not based on the same platform as its sedan counterpart).

For its part, the 2019 Subaru Impreza not only won a safety award from the IIHS, it's even more exclusive than that won by the Corolla Hatchback! The 2019 Subaru Impreza was named 2019 Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS -- their very highest safety honor, marking the Subaru Impreza as one of the safest cars on the road today.

2019 Subaru Impreza vs. 2019 Toyota Corolla: Driver Assistance

With Subaru EyeSight® available on any 2019 Subaru Impreza and Toyota Safety Sense™ P on the 2019 Toyota Corolla, both these cars offer advanced driver assist features. In the event of a dangerous situation, both these vehicles can intelligently intervene with features like pre-collision automatic braking, lane keep assist and more. However, as an added option, the 2019 Subaru Impreza can be equipped with automatic emergency braking that works in reverse, too. That's a safety feature you simply won't find on any 2019 Toyota Corolla.
