  • All-Wheel Drive: The Impreza wins this contest hands-down. It's the only the compact in its class to have standard symmetrical all-wheel drive. None of the other three cars even offer all-wheel drive as an option. If you live in area of the country like New England, with rough winters and equally rough back roads, all-wheel drive can be a lifesaver, and dramatically improves your car's drivability on all road conditions and all types of weather.
  • Safety: In fact, the Impreza, Civic, Elantra and GTI all have excellent safety ratings. Each has received an overall five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the Impreza, Civic, and Elantra are currently rated as Top Safety Pick+ choices by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but the GTI is not. These models earned these awards thanks to several driver-assist features, but only the Impreza offers steering-responsive headlights that illuminate more of the road ahead.
  • Performance: These cars are all pretty evenly matched in terms of engine power and gas mileage. The Impreza, Civic, and Elantra all come standard with a version of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes between 140 and 160 horsepower, but the Impreza's has more torque than the others. The GTI comes with a turbo charged engine that has more power, but it hits lower efficiency specs than the other models, and it is the heaviest of the bunch. Only the Impreza features Subaru's Boxer engine with horizontally-opposed pistons, which results in a lower center of gravity and helps with traction and handling.
  • Styling, Space and Flexibility: The Subaru Impreza and the Honda Civic are both available as four-door sedans or five-door hatchbacks, and the Civic is also available as a two-door coupe. Meanwhile, the Hyundai Elantra only comes as a four-door sedan while the GTI only comes as a hatchback. If you're looking for passenger and cargo room, the Impreza is the easiest choice whether you pick a sedan or hatchback body style. Its hatchback has 122 cubic feet of passenger room while the sedan has 112 cubic feet. None of the other models break 100 cubic feet of passenger room, and they all fall short in terms of max cargo room.
