2021 Toyota Corolla vs 2020 Subaru Impreza

With so many brands pushing fuel economy and a luxurious interior at an affordable rate, few sedans offer a complete and well-rounded experience for your hard-earned dollar. However, some do stand out from the crowd for their dependability, style, and customization options – such as the recently-released 2021 Toyota Corolla.

Brimming with unique features and performance, the 2021 Toyota Corolla adds onto its already-strong reputation. With plenty of notoriety behind it, how does it compare to other models in its class? At Bob Smith Toyota, we compared the model to the 2020 Subaru Impreza below:
