Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic Si offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Impreza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Si.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic Si 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 Si 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 Si will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic Si 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 Si takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

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

Handling
The Honda Civic Si 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 Si has a much more powerful engine than the Subaru Impreza. 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 Honda Civic Si and the Subaru Impreza. The Honda Civic Si has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Impreza.

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