2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Subaru BRZ Interior Comparison

Performance Comparison: 2018 Subaru Impreza VS 2018 Subaru BRZ

When it comes to driving fun, the 2018 Subaru BRZ has no equal for the price. It's a true, ultra-light sports car motivated by a powerful BOXER® engine that sends 205 horsepower to the rear wheels. To help you harness that power, the Subaru BRZ provides a performance suspension, a limited-slip differential and available Brembo® brakes. The 2018 Subaru Impreza can't match the BRZ for power or handling response, but all-wheel drive provides superior traction and available Active Torque Vectoring works to correct understeer when cornering, so even the Impreza feels grippy, nimble and fun to drive.

Safety Comparison: 2018 Subaru Impreza VS 2018 Subaru BRZ

The 2018 Subaru BRZ comes with all the modern safety features you demand, including Vehicle Stability Control, ventilated brakes and a full complement of airbags. However, because it's designed for performance driving that requires skill and attention, it's not available with active driver assistance systems. By contrast, Subaru EyeSight® is available on the 2018 Impreza, which provides features like pre-collision braking, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control. These features can intervene to help you avoid an accident. They're so effective that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety even gave the 2018 Subaru Impreza their highest honor, the 2018 Top Safety Pick+ award!
