Simply stop by the Colonial Subaru to browse our comprehensive selection of Subaru Impreza cars in Kingston. You can find out why so many Kingston, Wappingers Falls, Rhinebeck and Catskill area drivers choose the Impreza over its midsize challengers by perusing the quick comparison below. We pit the latest Impreza against two popular models, the Accord and Camry:

The Subaru Impreza versus the Honda Accord

  • The Impreza starts out on the right foot with a lower MSRP than the Accord.
  • Thanks to its slightly smaller engine, the Impreza is more efficient than the Accord in both highway and city driving.
  • The Impreza comes equipped with Subaru's signature Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system. The Accord doesn't even offer AWD.
  • Standard 60/40-split folding rear seats give the Impreza more cargo versatility than the Accord, which makes drivers upgrade to a more expensive trim for this basic feature.
  • The Impreza is available in a hatchback body style for a more cargo-friendly ride. The Accord is a sedan-only vehicle.
  • A standard touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone app integration gives the Impreza a high-tech edge over the ill-equipped Accord base model, which offers neither.
  • Even though the Impreza is technically classified as a compact car, it boasts more front headroom and legroom, as well as rear hip room, than the midsize Accord.

The Subaru Impreza versus the Toyota Camry

  • The Impreza wins out when it comes down to brass tacks, offering a lower starting price than the Camry.
  • The Impreza saves you money on every errand run and road trip with more efficient performance than the Camry in both highway and city driving.
  • That standard AWD makes the Impreza stand out among both compact and midsize sedans, as even the popular Camry doesn't offer AWD.
  • The Impreza's available hatchback design makes for more cargo volume than a sedan. Translation -- the sedan-only Camry doesn't have as much room in the trunk for all of your junk.
  • The Impreza's surprisingly spacious interior literally overshadows the Camry's cabin, as the Impreza flaunts more front headroom/legroom/hip room and rear hip room.
