2019 Mazda3 vs 2019 Subaru Impreza

2019 Mazda3 Sedan vs 2019 Subaru Impreza Sedan

Subaru isn’t often highlighted for their sedan models. The many illustrious crossover and SUV models of the Subaru brand are what has solidified their place and popularity within the automotive market. However, Subaru sedans and hatchbacks shouldn’t be overlooked. With such a determined focus as a crossover brand, this influence also affects their car models, creating some very unique builds with the Impreza and Legacy. Taking the Impreza, we’ve found a starling competitor to pit against the brand-new 2019 Mazda3!

Both the 2019 Mazda3 and the 2019 Subaru Impreza are offered in sedan and hatchback builds. Today, we’ll focus on the sedan models for our comparison. It’s the 2019 Mazda3 sedan vs the 2019 Subaru Impreza sedan!

The one unique advantage that the 2019 Subaru Impreza has over the 2019 Mazda3, and many other sedan models, is that the Impreza curiously has standard all-wheel drive with all of its models. The 2019 Mazda3 sedan does have all-wheel drive, but only as an optional add-on.
