The Amazing Subaru Impreza Outshines The Competition; Volkswagen Golf GTI, Honda Civic & Mazda3

There is a wide array of sedans and hatchbacks for Danbury drivers to choose from but none are quite like the Subaru Impreza. The Subaru Impreza certainly has proved itself as a clear standout from many of its biggest rivals with award-winning safety, long-lasting quality, the ideal blend of spirited and efficient performance, and all for an affordable price. We aren't just tooting our own horn, we have compared the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Honda Civic and Mazda3 to the Impreza in all of the ways that matter most.

The Subaru Impreza Is Ready For The Road Ahead:

When it comes to powertrain and performance the Subaru Impreza and standard go hand in hand. Like standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Incline Start Assist, Vehicle Dynamics Control, and Traction Control System. The Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf GTI, and Mazda3 sedan are all not available with all-wheel-drive at all. The Mazda3 hatchback is available with a less capable all-wheel-drive system for an additional cost that also drastically reduces its fuel economy. The Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is legendary among Norwalk drivers for its unmatched traction, control, and stability in less than ideal conditions.

Fuel efficiency is another place where the Subaru Impreza shines bright with up to 38 highway and 28 city mpg. The Honda Civic hatchback is the only model that offers slightly better fuel economy. Otherwise every other model can't compare.

  • Mazda3 Sedan: 35 highway / 26 city
  • Mazda3 Hatchback: 32 highway / 24 city
  • Honda Civic Sedan: 36 highway / 25 city
  • Volkswagen Golf GTI: 32 highway / 24 city
  • Spacious Interior & Features:

    Just because all of these vehicles are small in size doesn't mean you have to be crammed inside. All of your passengers will be more comfortable in the Impreza with more front headroom, front and rear legroom, and more total passenger space; 100.9 cubic feet. The Mazda3 and Volkswagen Golf GTI are significantly smaller than the Impreza with only 93.5 and 92.8 cubic feet of total passenger space. When it comes to maximum cargo among the hatchback models the Impreza has more to offer with 55.3 cubic feet of flexible space. The Honda Civic hatchback only has 46.2 cubic feet, the Mazda3 hatchback only has 47.1 cubic feet, the Golf GTI offers 53.7 cubic feet.

    When it comes to connective multimedia and safety features the Subaru Impreza has more to offer Danbury drivers. Like Subaru's top-rated EyeSight Driver Assist Technology available on every model. Or 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity which is not available on any other competitors. The Impreza also offers LED Steering Responsive Headlights and Automatic Collision Notification with STARLINK Safety & Security that the Honda Civic isn't available with.

    Competitive Price Tag & Long-Lasting Affordability and Quality:

     We are confident when we say that no one in Brewster, NY wants to pay more for less. All of the models we have compares have a similar starting price of right around $20,000; except for the Volkswagen Golf GTI that starts at $27,000. However, the Subaru Impreza gives you more bang for your buck with more standard features, like Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and STARLINK multimedia with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. To get similar features from the competition you will need to need to break out your wallets and choose a more expensive trim level; if they are even available.
