The Subaru Impreza is equipped with a 2.0L Subaru Boxer 4-cylinder engine that produces a horsepower of 152 and 145 lb-ft of torque. At the same time, the Toyota Corolla has a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that can only dole out 139 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque. The smaller turning radius of the Subaru Impreza allows for better maneuverability of the vehicle when compared to the Toyota Corolla, making handling easier. 
 
Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive is standard on all Impreza models, allowing for better control on the road. It also has the ability to balance weight, which enables a comfortable drive, especially during the winter or rainy season, and better adaptability to changing conditions. The Toyota Corolla only has front-wheel-drive (and not all-wheel-drive) capability for its models. 
 
Both have 60/40-split flat-folding rear seatbacks as well as a power driver seat. The Subaru Impreza offers up to 99.8 cu-ft of passenger volume on its 4-door cars and 100.9 cu-ft on its 5-door variants, surpassing the Corolla’s passenger volume of 88.6 cu-ft. The more capacious Impreza promotes a more pleasant driving experience than the Toyota Corolla. 
 
The Impreza’s Subaru Starlink Multimedia system has a standard screen that’s lesser than 7” with an 8” screen option on higher trims, the same as offered on the Toyota Corolla. The Toyota Corolla, however, does not provide Android Auto capability, which means Android phone users may get inconvenienced. The Subaru Impreza has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, making it possible to use your apps on the touchscreen by connecting your smartphone to the USB port.
 
The Subaru Impreza also offers standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which includes pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and pre-collision throttle management. It also provides 24-hour roadside assistance for up to 3 years or 36,000 miles. Also, for nine years, it has been an IIHS Top Safety Pick, a title the Toyota Corolla can’t boast.
