How Does the 2020 Subaru Impreza Compare to its Competition?

There's no lack for compact cars in the modern market. Every brand has at least one small-bodied model to offer. Few of them, however, have one that can stand on par with the Subaru Impreza.

Efficient, comfortable, and one of the only compact cars with standard all-wheel-drive, the newest Subaru Impreza stands out as one of the most valuable compact cars available for the roads of Owatonna and Red Wing.

It's not the only popular compact out there though. What makes it doubly impressive is how well the Impreza compares to many of its biggest name competitors. Let's take a look at everything it has to offer.

Power and Performance

The new Subaru Impreza offers a single uniform powertrain:

  • 2.0-liter flat-4: 152 horsepower, 145 pounds-feet of torque, 27/36 miles per gallon

While this lone engine option is perfect for drivers with more casual needs, some drivers Mankato might have concerns about how its arguably modest performance might fair when the weather gets rough or the roads become bad.

That's where all-wheel-drive comes in. While many compact cars fail to offer AWD at all, the Subaru Impreza includes it as a standard feature.

The Subaru Impreza comes available in two attractive configurations: as a sedan and a hatchback.

The sedan familiar style and friendly looks are sure to satisfy many Albert Lea drivers. If you're someone looking for a small car with extra cargo space, however, the Subaru Impreza is a no-brainer. It doesn't hurt that it looks great too!

On the inside the Subaru Impreza offers a cozy layout that can comfortably seat up to five. A range of upholstery options and comfort amenities likewise help to deliver a satisfying ride for everyone in the car.

Technology & Safety

What about features and equipment? You won't lack for them when you go home behind the wheel of a new Subaru Impreza. The latest model offers a solid standard infotainment suite complete with a 6.5-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Drivers of all sorts will doubtless also appreciate conveniences and amenities like remote keyless entry and, push-button start, and heated exterior mirrors.

The Impreza's safety collection, in turn, also provides a robust selection of standard and optional technology features. Its Subaru Eyesight safety suite includes coveted active feature including lane-keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and more. Blind-spot monitoring is also available, among other options.
