2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Comparison: Design

Your next new small car should look good, and there's no doubt that the new 2018 Subaru Impreza and the 2018 Chevy Cruze deliver with eye-catching exterior designs. However, what's beyond the appearance? Both models are available in your choice of sedan and hatchback models, but you'll find significantly more room for passengers and cargo inside a new Subaru Impreza than the new Chevrolet Cruze. It may seem like the Chevy Cruze enters the market with a far more affordable price tag, but consider what you're getting for the money. Features many take for granted, like cruise control will cost you extra as upgrades on higher trim levels on the Chevy Cruze, but they come standard on the Subaru Impreza. In fact, by the time you pay out to get a new Chevrolet Cruze comparably equipped to the entry-level Subaru Impreza, you'll find that the Chevy Cruze is nowhere near the bargain it appears.

2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Comparison: Performance

When considering the performance of your next new small car, we suggest going for the car that goes beyond simply getting you from one place to the next efficiently. This is a big investment, and your next new small car should be fun to drive anywhere and anytime. That includes the Pacific Northwest winters, which is where Subaru has made a name for itself. While the new Chevy Cruze is only available as a two-wheel drive vehicle, every Subaru Impreza comes standard with the renowned traction and handling of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Both small cars do offer similar power and fuel economy, but you'll find that the fully independent suspension and low center of gravity from the flat BOXER® engine in the Subaru Impreza handles like a dream. In fact, this is a driving experience that the Chevy Cruze with semi-independent rear suspension and traditional vertical engine design can only dream of.

2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Comparison: Safety

According to government research, more than 1,000 people are injured by distracted drivers every day in the United States. This is just one of the many reasons that safety in your next new vehicle is a top priority. Once again, we found substantial differences between the new 2018 Subaru Impreza and the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze. Both models do come standard with intuitive touchscreen infotainment systems to help reduce distractions, but what did the independent experts have to say? The IIHS recognized the new 2018 Subaru Impreza as one of only 15 vehicles to earn their highest possible 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick + distinction. That's a proven level of safety well beyond what the new Chevy Cruze showed. What's more, the available Subaru EyeSight® driver assist technology stands in a higher league than anything you'll find on a new Chevrolet Cruze.

No other vehicle on the market is engineered anything like a Subaru. It all starts with the flat BOXER® engines found under the hood of every Subaru model. This flat design provides a lower center of gravity allowing for precision and comfortable handling that's just not available in other vehicles. Then, there's the renowned traction of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that comes standard on nearly every Subaru model to take your journey safely beyond the beaten path. In fact, Subaru continues to be an industry leader in safety, especially when you consider the advanced EyeSight® driver assistance technology that will soon start coming standard.
