Interior and Exterior Design

  • Interior Volume: The Impreza offers more interior volume, but the Forte has more cargo space than the Impreza sedan and more head room for the second row.
  • Interior Features: When comparing the interior features of the base models of the Forte and Impreza, it's quickly clear that the Forte offers many more. The features that you will find for the Forte that aren't available for the Impreza include heated front seats, automatic climate control, dual zone temperature control, satellite radio, and even an available navigation system.
  • Exterior Features: The Forte and Impreza have several exterior features that are similar, but the Forte also offers standard fog lamps, an available power sunroof with tilt, and standard power heated exterior mirrors.

Performance and Utility

  • Drivetrain: Both the Kia Forte and the Subaru Impreza come with independent front suspension, but the Impreza comes with standard all-wheel drive.

Which Compact Car Will Suit Your Lifestyle Best?

The Subaru Impreza has several advantages when it comes to power, interior space, and price, but if you want more interior and exterior features without paying extra, then the Forte could be best for you.
