The 2018 Subaru Impreza Remains at the Head Both the Sedan and Hatchback Classes

The 2018 Subaru Impreza is available in both a sedan and a hatchback body style, and the design and capability of both are exceptional. Spacious, efficient, versatile, and tech filled, the Subaru Impreza distances itself from the competition in a variety of ways, but its standard all-wheel drive will probably interest Poughkeepsie car shoppers the most.

While we believe that the Subaru Impreza delivers more of what drivers are looking for, we know that competing models also have a lot to offer, so we've highlighted several of the ways that the Impreza bests two of its main competitors, the 2018 Ford Fusion and 2018 Honda Civic. You can find out more below.

2018 Subaru Impreza vs. 2018 Honda Civic

  • Both models come in either a sedan or hatchback body style, so Catskill car shoppers are presented with some options, but the Subaru Impreza is again the more affordable of the two as its sedan starts at a lower price and there is only a $500 jump if you prefer the hatchback. Meanwhile, the Honda Civic hatchback is over $1,000 pricier than the Civic's sedan option.
  • Subaru models are known for their standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system that has made it easier for Wappingers Falls drivers to deal with winter weather for years, and the Subaru Impreza is no different. On the other hand, the Honda Civic is only available with front-wheel drive, which makes it practically useless during the winter months.
  • The Subaru Impreza comes out on top in terms of passenger space no matter whether you're comparing the sedan or hatchback styles of these two models. Plus, the Subaru Impreza hatchback has more cargo carrying capacity than the Honda Civic hatchback.
  • Standard all-wheel drive makes you more confident when driving, and so should the Subaru Impreza's numerous safety awards, like the aforementioned 2018 Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS. The 2018 Honda Civic received no awards from the IIHS.

2018 Subaru Impreza vs. 2018 Ford Fusion

  • Rhinebeck car shoppers looking to save some money while still getting an awesome model will find that the Subaru Impreza, starting price of $18,495, is a much better deal than Ford Fusion, which starts at $22,215 despite not coming standard with features like all-wheel drive.
  • The Subaru Impreza presents car shoppers with tons of options, but their main decision is between a sedan and hatchback body style. The Ford Fusion is only available as a sedan, which doesn't provide the same cargo capacity as the hatchback.
  • When just comparing the sedan body types, Newburgh passengers will find the Subaru Impreza and its 112 cubic feet of passenger room is more spacious and welcoming than the Ford Fusion and its 103 cubic feet of room. If you need room for biking, fishing, or camping gear, then the Subaru Impreza hatchback, 55.3 cubic feet of max cargo room, is the way to go as its elevated cargo area is easier to load.
  • Even with all-wheel drive, the Subaru Impreza is much more efficient than the Ford Fusion. It gets up to an EPA-estimated 28 miles per gallon city and 38 mpg highway, which both best the 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway of the Ford Fusion.
  • Both models come with driver-assist features like blind spot detection and pre-collision braking, but only the 2018 Subaru Impreza offers steering-responsive headlights, which helped it to earn a 2018 Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS, their highest honor. The 2018 Ford Fusion is a 2017 Top Safety Pick, but it did not meet the stricter 2018 safety parameters.

The 2018 Subaru Impreza is more affordable, filled with more features in a roomier cabin, and safer than the competition whether you're looking at the sedan or hatchback style, so, if you want to find out more about it, you're always welcome at our Kingston dealership!
