Subaru Impreza vs Toyota Corolla Comparison

Subaru Impreza and Toyota Corolla Performance & Safety Comparison

2013 Subaru Impreza Compared to the 2013 Toyota Corolla

Carter Subaru Ballard has the all-new 2013 Subaru Impreza. This new Impreza has a number of great features that help set it apart from other competitors in its class. Come see everything that the 2013 Subaru Impreza can offer you and your family today at Carter Subaru Ballard.


To help maximize traction during poor driving conditions, such as ice and snow, the 2013 Impreza comes standard with all-wheel drive. The Toyota Corolla does not offer all-wheel drive. And some models of the Impreza have an optional backup monitor to help you avoid obstacles behind you when backing up. The Corolla does not have an option for a parking assist system.


The Impreza comes standard with a 2.0 DOHC 4 cylinder boxer engine that offers 16 more horsepower, 148hp versus 132hp, and 17 more lbs/ft. of torque, 145 lbs/ft. versus 128 lbs/ft., than the Corolla's 1.8 DOHC 4 cylinder engine. And the Impreza can achieve Zero to 60 MPH faster than the Corolla, 9.2 seconds versus 9.9 seconds. The Impreza also features a boxer engine, which has a flat cylinder configuration, creating a lower center of gravity, and providing enhanced handling stability. The Corolla does not have a boxer configuration engine.

Fuel Range

The Impreza has a fuel capacity of 1.3 gallons more than the capacity of the Corolla (14.5 vs. 13.2 gallons), giving you a greater distance between fill-ups.

Suspension and Handling

The fully independent front and rear suspensions of the Subaru Impreza make for superior ride and handling. The independent suspension allows the wheels to follow the road at the best angle for gripping the pavement, without compromising ride comfort. The Toyota Corolla has a rear torsion beam axle, with a semi-independent rear suspension. The Impreza also features a longer wheel base than the Corolla, 104.1 inches versus 102.4 inches, which contributes to the Impreza having a smoother ride and better handling than the Corolla.
