Comparison of the 2023 Subaru Impreza vs 2023 Kia Forte

Also, the 2023 Kia Forte gets a bit better fuel economy, offers a turbocharged engine option,

and has a wider selection of transmissions compared to the 2023 Subaru Impreza.

The Forte is a front-wheel-drive, four-door sedan, whereas The Subaru Impreza is available in either

four-door hatchback or five-door hatchback, with all-wheel-drive as standard.

The Subaru Impreza offers standard all-wheel drive (AWD), making it a strong choice in areas with frequent snow in the forecast.

When comparing the Subaru Impreza with a Kia Rio, the Subaru Impreza has an edge in the areas of interior volume, overall quality rating, and basic engine horsepower.

The five-speed manual on Subarus Impreza Sport sedan is less lethargic than the CVT in our long-term Sport Hatch,

but in fact, we preferred the automatic because of its jerky, inaccurate manual-shift characteristics.
