2020 Subaru Impreza vs. 2020 Mazda3

  • AWD: This year, the Mazda3 offers available all-wheel drive on the higher trim levels of the hatchback body style, joining the Impreza as the only vehicles in their class to offer all-wheel drive. The Impreza, however, comes with standard all-wheel drive on every model, allowing you to enjoy the confidence and freedom it provides you with on even the least expensive models.
  • Cost: Both vehicles offer greater value in both the sedan and hatchback builds, but you can buy an Impreza for less than the Mazda3. The Impreza starts at under $19,000 while the Mazda3 starts at over $21,000, allowing you to upgrade to higher trim level or keep more money in your pocket when you choose the Impreza.
  • Space:Both vehicles are accommodating to passengers and cargo alike, with the Subaru Impreza offering up to 100.9 cubic feet of passenger volume in the hatchback model, compared to 92.7 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Mazda3 hatchback. Both vehicles offer almost identical cargo volume in the hatchback, with the Mazda3 offering 20.1 cubic feet and the Impreza offers 20.8.
  • Connectivity: The 2020 Subaru Impreza and 2020 Mazda3 put a main focus on entertainment and connectivity on the go, that's why both vehicles offer standard infotainment systems with Bluetooth connectivity. The Impreza, however, also comes with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it easier to connect and control your compatible mobile device on the go. The Mazda3 also offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but only on the Select trim level and above.
  • Safety: Both the Impreza and the Mazda3 are focused on driver safety, both offering helpful driving aids like automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and more throughout the lineup. However, both vehicles also offer features that you won't find on the other model, including the Mazda3 offering a driver-attention monitoring system and the Impreza offering LED steering responsive headlights.
