Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic Si than the Subaru BRZ. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic Si and the Subaru BRZ in the front seats.

Convenience

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).

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 Si will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru BRZ.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic Si transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Subaru BRZ.
