2019 Subaru Impreza VS 2019 Chevy Cruze: Best Drive?

No matter the road conditions you're facing, the 2019 Subaru Impreza gives you more control for a more enjoyable drive. That's partly because it comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. This sophisticated system constantly directs engine power to the wheels with the best grip -- which helps dramatically on rainy, icy and unpaved roads. You can't get AWD on the 2019 Chevy Cruze at all.

Furthermore, the Chevy Cruze makes use of a typical inline engine and a torsion bar rear suspension -- but Subaru gives you a flat, low-mounted BOXER® engine and independent rear suspension instead. Its unique design positions the weight of the engine low and rearward on the body for a planted feel and reduced body roll. Take all this and add the fully independent rear suspension and it's clear: The 2019 Subaru Impreza handles with poise and precision you just don't get from the Chevy Cruze.

The ring-shaped, reinforced frame of the Impreza is built with high-strength steel for resiliance in a crash.

2019 Subaru Impreza VS 2019 Chevy Cruze: Best Drive?

The 2019 Chevy Cruze hasn't yet been subjected to the full gamut of crash tests by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Meanwhile, the 2019 Subaru Impreza passed both organizations' tests with flying colors! It received a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA and the 2019 Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS, that organization's highest safety accolade. You can trust that the 2019 Subaru Impreza is among the safest sedans available when it comes to protecting your loved ones in the event of an accident.

2019 Subaru Impreza VS 2019 Chevy Cruze: Best Driver Assistance?

The available Subaru EyeSight® suite of driver assist features includes all sorts of cutting edge features that can protect you on today's hectic roads. You'll be protected by pre-collision automatic braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control. You'll be able to program a set following distance, and EyeSight® will maintain that following distance from traffic ahead of you, even speeding up or slowing down automatically. The 2019 Chevy Cruze offers most of these other features, but not adaptive cruise control. That's something you'll only get on the 2019 Subaru Impreza.
