Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Subaru Impreza. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic, drivers may find the Subaru Impreza a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

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). Whether you pick the Honda Civic or the Subaru Impreza, it's going to cost you about the same. 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
The Honda Civic is a little wider than the Subaru Impreza, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 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 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.
