2017 Honda Civic vs. 2016 Subaru Impreza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Impreza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic as you will with the Subaru Impreza, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). The Honda Civic is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Impreza. 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 Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda Civic, which is slightly longer than the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Subaru Impreza.

Handling
The Honda Civic has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Impreza, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic is somewhat more powerful than the Subaru Impreza.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Subaru Impreza. The Honda Civic has less cargo capacity than the Subaru Impreza, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Honda Civic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Impreza.
