Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Insight offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Impreza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Insight, 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 Insight 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 Insight 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 Insight will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Insight is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Insight takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

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

Handling
The Honda Insight 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 Insight is significantly less powerful than the Subaru Impreza. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Insight and the Subaru Impreza. The Honda Insight has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Impreza.

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