When it comes to sedans, you have a lot of choices out there that will undoubtedly get you to where you need to go. But if you're looking for elevated models that are equipped with tons of features, then look towards the new Subaru Impreza and Nissan Sentra. Both are top sedans on the streets of the Bloomfield, Montclair, and Clifton areas. But, how do you know which one is right for you?

To help you decide, Lynnes Subaru has created this 2019 Subaru Impreza vs. Nissan Sentra comparison. Below, you can find out which one will better suit your driving needs by seeing them side-by-side, comparing the most important sedan aspects. Let's get started.

2019 Impreza vs 2019 Sentra - Performance Specs

When you're hitting the streets, you deserve optimal power and reliability. While both sedans offer a great ride, there are some differences to note.

The Nissan Sentra is standardly powered by the 1.8L engine which generates 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. When paired with a manual transmission, you'll have enough power and the ability to customize your ride.

On the other hand, the Subaru Impreza comes standard with the 2.0L engine. With more liters under the hood, you'll have more strength with 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. And while the base model is also equipped with a manual transmission, a Lineartronic® CVT with adaptive control is available, taking the guesswork out of shifting.

Additionally, Subaru is known for the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which is standard on every Impreza trim. All-wheel drive is not even available for the Sentra.

Impreza vs Sentra - Interior Space

When it comes to sedans, every inch inside the cabin counts. These two models both offer enough space for five, but one might leave you wanting a tad more, especially in the backseat.

The 2019 Impreza has a passenger volume of 100.9 cubic feet, leaving your travel companions (and yourself) with ample room for the road ahead. This includes 39.8 inches of headroom in the front and 37.2 inches in the back. Shoulder room is also aplenty, offering 56.7 inches for those in the front and 55.6 in the rear. Plus, in the front, you will have 43.1 inches of room for your legs.

The 2019 Sentra offers quite less passenger space, coming in at 95.9. This means headroom is tighter in this sedan, measuring 39.4 inches in the front and 36.7 inches for those seated in the back. Shoulder room is also not as ample, leaving the driver and front passenger with 54.7 inches and rear seaters with 53.9 inches. Legroom in the front is also less, with 42.5 inches.

Additionally, since the Impreza is available in a 5-door model, cargo space is also larger. In the Nissan Sentra, you will find up to 15.1 cubic feet in the trunk while the 5-door Subaru Impreza gives you an impressive 20.8 cubic feet.
