2019 Subaru Impreza Interior

2019 Subaru Impreza VS 2019 Chevy Cruze: Interior Size

With just 94.0 cubic feet of passenger volume inside both the sedan and the hatchback, the 2019 Chevy Cruze is a lot more cramped inside than the Subaru Impreza. The 2019 Subaru Impreza sedan comes with 99.8 cubic feet of passenger space, and the hatchback version increases that a bit to 100.9 cubic feet!

2019 Subaru Impreza Technology

2019 Subaru Impreza VS 2019 Chevy Cruze: Technology

The 2019 Chevy Cruze lacks some of the most basic technology features you expect in a modern car. Cruise control and steering-wheel mounted controls for the stereo are both unavailable on the base model. They come standard on the 2019 Subaru Impreza.

You also can't get adaptive cruise control on the 2019 Chevy Cruze at all. Available on every 2019 Subaru Impreza model and standard on the Subaru Impreza Limited, adaptive cruise control not only maintains a set cruising speed, it'll slow down and speed up automatically based on traffic ahead of you. This handy traffic jam assistant can only be found on the Subaru Impreza.

2019 Subaru Impreza Performance

2019 Subaru Impreza VS 2019 Chevy Cruze: Performance

Thanks to standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the 2019 Subaru Impreza is one of only a handful of compact cars that give you the traction and grip you need for getting around Utah in the snow and ice. The 2019 Chevy Cruze is only available as a front-wheel drive car, meaning it's more prone to slide or get stuck in severe winter weather.

And if you like to select your own gears for a more engaging drive, the 2019 Subaru Impreza is the only one of these cars available with a 5-speed manual transmission. You can only have an automatic in the Chevy Cruze.

2019 Subaru Impreza Safety Options

That's the most exclusive safety award in our industry. The 2019 Chevy Cruze hasn't won any IIHS safety honors.

2019 Subaru Impreza Driver Assistance Features

2019 Subaru Impreza VS 2019 Chevy Cruze: Driver Assistance
