2014 Subaru Impreza vs. 2015 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the Subaru Impreza, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Impreza, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Subaru Impreza is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda Accord. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru Impreza and the Honda Accord have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Impreza is much slimmer than the Honda Accord, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Subaru Impreza, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Accord.

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

Handling
The Subaru Impreza has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda Accord, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru Impreza is significantly less powerful than the Honda Accord. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Subaru Impreza and the Honda Accord. The Subaru Impreza has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Accord, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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