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 Fit 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 Fit.

Convenience
With the Subaru Impreza you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Fit, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Fit is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Fit will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Fit is much slimmer than the Subaru Impreza, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Honda Fit, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Subaru Impreza.

Drivetrain
The Honda Fit has much less torque than the Subaru Impreza, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
The Honda Fit has less horsepower than the Subaru Impreza, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Fit and the Subaru Impreza. The Honda Fit has less cargo capacity than the Subaru Impreza, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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