2015 Honda Civic vs. 2014 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 and the Subaru Impreza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is about the same width as the Subaru Impreza. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru Impreza.

Handling
The Honda Civic has about the same turning radius as the Subaru Impreza, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Subaru Impreza, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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 a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Impreza.

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