Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Subaru Impreza. 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 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.

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

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

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic transmits a bit more power to the wheels 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.

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