2019 Subaru Impreza Interior Features

2019 Subaru Impreza vs 2019 Nissan Sentra: Interior

The Subaru Impreza may be a compact car, but it certainly doesn't feel like it! It has 99.8 cubic feet of passenger volume, which is more than the 96 cubic feet you'll find in the Nissan Sentra. This means that you'll get more headroom, legroom, and shoulder room in both rows of the Subaru Impreza.

Subaru is designed with capability in mind, and that's just what you'll find in the Subaru Impreza. It comes standard with roof crossbar mounting points, making it easy for you to add roof rails for extra cargo capacity. And if you want even more cargo space and versatility, check out the Subaru Impreza 5-Door hatchback.

2019 Subaru Impreza Performance Specs

2019 Subaru Impreza vs 2019 Nissan Sentra: Performance Specs

In both power and versatility, the Subaru Impreza stands above the Nissan Sentra. The Impreza is powered by a SUBARU BOXER® engine that generates 152 horsepower--noticeably more than the 130 you'll get standard in the Nissan Sentra. In addition, the Nissan Sentra is a front-wheel drive vehicle. The Subaru Impreza is better equipped to let you handle more challenging terrain and slick roads thanks to its standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.


2019 Subaru Impreza Safety

2019 Subaru Impreza vs 2019 Nissan Sentra: Safety

The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive does more than just give the Subaru Impreza an adventurous spirit: it also makes it safer. When you're navigating on slick, wet roads, the AWD makes it easier for you to stay in control. Subaru has crafted every part of the Impreza with safety in mind, and it has the safety ratings to back it up. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2019 Subaru Impreza a perfect five-star rating across the board. The 2019 Nissan Sentra didn't fare quite so well, earning just four stars in the overall safety rating, frontal crash, and rollover categories.


2019 Subaru Impreza Driver Assistance Technology

2019 Subaru Impreza vs 2019 Nissan Sentra: Driver Assistance Technology

The dedication Subaru has shown to safety is perfectly exemplified in Subaru EyeSight®. This suite of driver assist technology features includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane keep assist, and lane departure/sway warning, and it's available on even the entry-level Subaru Impreza. The Nissan Sentra does offer automatic emergency braking and intelligent cruise control; however, they're not available on the entry-level trim. In addition, you won't find a lane assist system on the Nissan Sentra at all.
