2015 Subaru Impreza vs. 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Subaru Impreza than in the Honda Civic Hybrid, due to the Subaru Impreza's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Convenience
The Honda Civic Hybrid requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Subaru Impreza, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Subaru Impreza will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Civic Hybrid. 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 Civic Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Subaru Impreza does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru Impreza has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Civic Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher 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 Civic Hybrid. The Subaru Impreza has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Warranty
