2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback vs 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback: Performance

In terms of performance, you'll best discover the difference between these two hatchbacks from behind the wheel. On paper, it appears that both models offer similar power with the Toyota Corolla Hatchback holding a slight fuel economy advantage. However, among the things you can't get in any Toyota Corolla model is all-wheel drive. Meanwhile, every Subaru Impreza, whether it's the hatchback or sedan, comes standard with the legendary traction that can only be found with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. When this teams up with the flat BOXER® engine in the Subaru Impreza, you're in for a level of handling and grip that the Toyota Corolla simply can't compete with.
