A 2020 Toyota Corolla with an all-wheel drive is quite something, while for its part, the 2020 Subaru Impreza features its Symmetrical Full-Time All-Wheel Drive system in all its versions. This difference alone should help draw a distinction between these two popular compact sedans, but many other features, well known by drivers from Montreal and Laval, separate them.
The Toyota Corolla is not new. This 12th generation, touched-up for 2020, sports a new profile and a more dynamic style. It however maintains a known powertrain, namely a 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine with an output that doesn’t go above 139 horsepower.
As for the Subaru Impreza, its history is more recent. It is in its fifth generation, and has greatly evolved over the years, going from a sportier profile to that of a more family-oriented and more comfortable compact sedan. On top of its all-wheel drive that helps it make its way on the urban roads of Downtown Montreal and the West Island as well as on the rougher stretches of rural roads, its powertrain is what sets it apart. Just like the other 2020 Subaru models, it relies on a horizontally-opposed 4-cylinder engine of 152 horsepower, with improvements that make it more powerful, but also more eco-efficient than ever.
Driving enjoyment is also one of the great qualities of this compact 2020 Subaru Impreza. The precise steering and the improved braking system provide the car with more direct road handling than ever. In this regard, the 2020 Corolla first puts emphasis on reliability, driving enjoyment taking a back seat.
In the Subaru side, safety is also put at the forefront, and the new 2020 Subaru Impreza proposes the EyeSight system as standard on most versions. This group of on-board electronic systems ensures worry-free excursions, managing among others the blind spots, automatic braking and adaptive cruise control. The Corolla offers a similar but less complete system, named Safety Sense.
For fans of dynamic and safe driving, in Montreal, in Laval or anywhere else in Quebec, the Subaru Impreza will be the right road companion. It’s even better to come test drive it at your Subaru Montréal dealer.
