2016 Honda Civic vs. 2016 Scion FR-S Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Scion FR-S. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic and the Scion FR-S in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Scion FR-S, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Scion FR-S. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic will cost more in transportation costs than the Scion FR-S.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is a little wider than the Scion FR-S, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Honda Civic, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Scion FR-S.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Scion FR-S.

Handling
The Honda Civic has about the same turning radius as the Scion FR-S, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Scion FR-S, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Honda Civic offers greater seating capacity than the Scion FR-S, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Civic will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Scion FR-S.

Warranty
The Honda Civic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Scion FR-S.
