2020 Subaru Impreza vs 2020 Toyota Corolla: Performance & Drive

Available with front-wheel drive only, the 2020 Toyota Corolla has less power and less technology to give you a more capable drive. By contrast, the 2020 Subaru Impreza comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel drive. This translates to more confidence in wet weather and on particularly rough or unpaved roads. Available Active Torque Vectoring will engage the inside front brake under hard cornering so you stay on a smooth line and eliminate understeer. All-wheel drive and Active Torque Vectoring aren't available on the 2020 Toyota Corolla at all.

And with 152 standard horsepower, the 2020 Subaru Impreza has more power for highway merging and passing. The 2020 Toyota Corolla will be more sluggish at highway speeds making just 139 horsepower.


Subaru Impreza Top Safety Pick

2020 Subaru Impreza vs 2020 Toyota Corolla: Safety & Control

The 2020 Subaru Impreza offers all the same standard and available safety features as the 2020 Toyota Corolla like steering-responsive LED headlights, forward collision warning, pre-collision emergency braking and lane keeping assistance. In fact, both models earned the 2020 Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety! That means, in the event of an accident, both these cars have been ranked among the safest on the market.

But with all-wheel drive, the 2020 Subaru Impreza gives you more confidence and control in poor weather. That's not just an important performance feature, it's critical to your safety! That's a level of wet weather confidence you can't get on the 2020 Toyota Corolla.
