Compare 2018 Subaru Impreza and Mazda3


The New 2018 Subaru Impreza takes on the Competition

The 2018 Subaru Impreza continues to impress drivers around here in the Countryside area, with its two different body style options and standard all-wheel drive. Here at The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside, we're big fans of the compact Impreza, and we're proud to recommend to Illinois drivers.

The 2018 Subaru Impreza hasn't undergone any major changes, and that's a good thing. The compact model, available in either a four-door, five-passenger sedan, or a versatile five-passenger hatchback, is a great car that's perfect for winter driving and fun weekend adventures.

The Subaru Impreza vs. the Mazda3

As great as we here at The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside know the Impreza to be, we also know that it's not your only new-car option. The Mazda3 is a similar vehicle to the Impreza. It also comes in a choice of sedan or hatchback, and it also comes with a slew of standard features.

But, the Impreza still manages to come out ahead of the Mazda3 in several key areas, as we show here:

  • All-Wheel Drive Capability. As a Subaru model, Illinois drivers expect the new Impreza to come with standard all-wheel drive, and it does. Subaru's signature Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes on every Impreza in the lineup, while all-wheel drive isn't even an option available on the Mazda3.
  • Fuel Economy. The Subaru Impreza and the Mazda3 have similar-sized fuel tanks and similar fuel economy ratings. Except in one place. When it comes to how many miles you can go between fill-ups, the Impreza will take you farther. The 2018 Impreza averages around 502 highway miles per tank of gas, compare to the 488 highway mile rating of the Mazda3.

The 2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Honda Civic

  • Price is a key factor when choosing a vehicle, and the 2018 Subaru Impreza is more affordable than the 2018 Honda Civic, meaning you can enjoy putting more money to other areas of your life.
  • The Impreza comes with Subaru's legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system to maximize control in harsh conditions, helping improve safety for everyone in and around the vehicle, the Honda Civic has no comparable feature.
  • The IIHS has named the Impreza a Top Safety Pick+ vehicle by earning the best scores for all safety scenarios and safety features, the Civic received no distinctions or awards.
  • Safety features from Subaru Eyesight outnumber those in Honda Sensing, adding Pre-Collision Braking to a Complete Stop and Pre-Collision Throttle Management to all of the other features, whereas Honda Sensing does not.
  • Considered the longest lasting vehicle in its class, the Impreza lives by the Subaru tradition of lasting well over 200,000 miles because of its superior construction and BOXER Engine
  • Offering more passenger volume in the hatchback, 121.6 Cubic Feet versus 97.2 Cubic Feet, the Impreza tends to be more comfortable than the Honda Civic.
  • A Larger fuel tank on the Impreza will make sure that you don't have to stop as much to fill up for gas, letting you get to where you need to be as quickly as possible.
