2018 Subaru Impreza Comparisons in the Boston Area

Compare the New 2018 Impreza to the Honda Civic, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla

Choosing a small and efficient car for daily commuting in and out of Boston is sensible shopping. You'll find the best of the small car segment here at our Belmont, MA Subaru dealership serving Boston, Cambridge, Natick, Newton and Wakefield, with this model that's offered as both a hatchback and a sedan. Of course we're talking about the new 2018 Subaru Impreza, which blends strong efficiency ratings with our favorite brand's unique touches.

To give you an idea of how great of a choice the new Impreza is, we're showing you how it stacks up to other popular small cars. In this case, you'll see why the Impreza is the better option for Boston area driving than the Honda Civic, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla, both of which are two of the more popular sedans. The unique Subaru features and qualities go a long way toward making the Impreza the preferred commuter choice here in New England, but as you'll see below, there are several other reasons to choose this one over the new Civic, Mazda3 or Corolla. Read on to learn more, then visit today and we'll go over your new Subaru leasing or financing options.

2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Honda Civic

  • While this is a nice feature to have anywhere, in Boston it's especially important to have the standard AWD of the new Impreza, compared to the Civic that doesn't even make that an option. While still earning impressive fuel economy figures, the standard AWD in the Impreza makes driving around during the worst winter spells much safer and adds more confidence to your travels.
    • Both the Impreza and Civic are offered as four-door sedans or five-door hatchbacks, and the Subaru starts off with a lower price in both setups. Additionally, when selecting the hatchback version, the Impreza boasts a considerably larger cabin space for passengers compared to the Civic's interior dimensions. Furthermore, roof rails are optional with the Impreza hatchback, but aren't offered in any level of the Civic five-door.
    • While both small cars offer optional safety features, the Subaru EyeSight suite found with the Impreza is far more comprehensive than Honda's selection of driver assistance systems. For example the Impreza comes available with LED steering-responsive headlights and reverse automatic braking, both of which aren't offered with the Civic.
    • Finally, the Impreza is rated as lasting much longer than the Civic, making purchasing the Subaru with a loan for the long term a much smarter investment than with a higher priced Honda.



2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Toyota Corolla

  • While it was clear the hatchback version of the Impreza is better than the Civic five-door, the new Corolla isn't even offered as a hatchback. The cargo and passenger space dimensions of the Impreza hatchback far exceed what's offered inside the new Corolla, so choose the option that better accommodates fellow riders and all your stuff.
  • It's kind of like beating a dead horse always mentioning the standard AWD in the Impreza, but that's an important feature to have during snowy and icy winter weather Boston regularly experiences. The Corolla, like pretty much every other small sedan on the market, doesn't even offer AWD as an option.
  • Even with the standard AWD, the Impreza, in its sedan setup, earns better fuel efficiency than the Corolla. Every mpg matters when you're commuting daily, especially in the Boston area where starting and stopping constantly can put a strain on your gas tank.
  • Finally, the standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder found in all Impreza editions will give you a far more pleasurable driving experience compared to the Corolla which comes with a 1.8-liter four, producing only 132 horsepower, compared to 158 hp for the Subaru small sedan or hatchback.

  2. More passenger volume than the Mazda3 with 100.9 cu.-ft. of space
