Drivers searching for a new vehicle often times get caught up searching in just one particular segment and don’t realize there are other vehicle types that may fit their needs as well. Those shopping for a vehicle that is compact and efficient sometimes forget about the hatchback segment. Our team here at Serra Toyota is going to compare the 2016 Toyota Corolla with the 2016 Subaru Impreza. Even though they’re different body styles, they have a lot of comparable features that we’re going to point out.
Both the 2016 Corolla and the 2016 Subaru Impreza are set with a variable automatic transmission for a smooth driving experience. Their fuel economies are almost identical, and the engines are similar in size. The 2016 Impreza does pump out slightly more power with 148 horsepower in comparison to the 2016 Corolla with 132 horsepower. With seating for five passengers, both of these vehicles are ready for inner city driving or highway cruising. The warranties offer on both vehicles are the same, so drivers know they’re covered.

One of the main differences between the two vehicles is the cargo space available. Since the 2016 Toyota Corolla is a compact sedan, there is minimal space provided in the trunk, but the 2016 Subaru Impreza is a hatchback so there is a lot more space. The Corolla offers 13 cubic feet in the trunk whereas the Impreza has 22.5 cubic feet of space for extra belongings behind the second row seat.
It’s important to note, the 2016 Toyota Corolla LE was compared to the 2016 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium, so there are additional features available on higher models for both vehicles. With that being said, the 2016 Toyota Corolla does start to shine brighter than the 2016 Subaru Impreza when it comes to the amount of standard features that are not available on the Impreza including automatic climate control, optional satellite radio and voice activated controls.
