2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2016 Subaru Impreza in Youngstown, OH

See How the 2016 Cruze Dominates the 2016 Impreza

When you’re in the market for a compact car, the possibilities are seemingly endless considering its large segment. We at Sweeney Chevrolet put together a comparison between the 2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2016 Subaru Impreza in Youngstown, OH, to help you decide which compact car is the best-suited for you! See which one comes out on top in terms of interior features and power.

Interior amenities are important in a vehicle, and both of these vehicles are well-equipped. However, the 2016 Cruze beats out the Impreza by providing more tech-savvy and commodious features. When you want to bring along coolers, fishing gear, and the like to McKelvey Lake, you’ll be able to carry a bit more in the Cruze given its 12.3 cubic ft. of cargo space1 to utilize. The Impreza can only accommodate up to 12 cubic ft. of space1.

When the temperature drops, you want to know you’ll be taken care of – especially in the middle of Midwest winters. The Subaru Impreza is outfitted with heated front seats to help keep you and your co-pilot warm. It also features the manually-adjustable CFC-free air condition system as standard, while automatic climate control is standard on only on higher trims. The Chevy Cruze takes it a step further with heated front and rear outboard seats, so everyone in the car will be more than comfortable – not just those in front. The Cruze even has a heated steering-wheel and climate control as standard.

The 2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2016 Subaru Impreza in Youngstown, OH, continues to prove how better equipped the Chevy Cruze is. Standard on all trims is the Chevrolet MyLink®2 Infotainment System, which features a 7-inch touchscreen display and the latest integration with Apple CarPlay®3 and Android Auto™3. The Impreza’s standard STARLINK™ Infotainment System4 only features a 6.2-inch touchscreen and no smartphone integration available. While the Impreza has a standard USB port outfitted with the infotainment system, that’s all the connection you’ll be able to get. The Cruze offers a USB port5, auxiliary input jack, and 12-volt power outlet in the front storage bin – all standard, and all within reach.

You wouldn’t expect to find incredible power and capability in a compact car, but that’s not the case for these vehicles. The Chevy Cruze has a standard 1.4L DOHC engine, which produces 153 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. The Subaru Impreza can’t quite keep up with its standard 2.0L DOHC engine, though, which only renders 148 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque. The Cruze also outshines the Impreza in terms of fuel efficiency. When equipped with automatic transmission, the Chevy is able to work its way up to 30/42/35 MPG city/hwy/combined6. The Impreza, however, only produces a maximum 27/36 MPG city/hwy7.
