Subaru Impreza vs. Honda Civic


Engine torque is an important supporting factor for any sedan enthusiast who wants to feel confident through commutes and the different ins and outs of driving for the day. The 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine in the Subaru Impreza offers 145 pound-feet in comparison to just 138 pound-feet in the engine of the Civic, a noticeable distinction when you consider the times in traffic that you may be in pinch, those times that some extra force is necessary, and the security that you look to capture at all times in your vehicle. You can even enjoy having to gas up less often as your fuel tank in the Impreza holds a 13.2 gallon to 12.4 gallon advantage over the Civic.

With all this said, you can always depend upon the performance of the Subaru Impreza in multiple scenarios, always finding yourself confidently coming out on top as you happily pull into your driveway at the end of a ride.

Driving with Seasons in Mind

Here in Lyme, CT, seasons are certainly something that we can just gloss over when it comes to what to expect on the roads for the year. The weather has a profound, lasting impact on the surfaces with which we travel upon, and this is something to keep in mind as fall begins to shift over to winter and the slick conditions are reinforced. With the Subaru Impreza, you get the famed Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive standard! Sedans aren't known for this type of distinction, and the Honda Civic certainly can't offer it to you. But you can enjoy traction underneath your wheels in the base model of the Impreza upwards, something that is really helpful in giving you peace of mind while driving year-round in New England.


Shoppers comparing similar vehicles often look to save every dollar they possibly can, as the preferred value is what can ultimately set two very comparable models apart when other things are equal. That price advantage is something you will enjoy with the Subaru Impreza, as this sedan offers a less expensive base and total MSRP than the Civic by a slight edge. When considering how you can put this additional money down towards the service requirements you will certainly need at some point, or towards some other important project or investment you have in mind, this is certainly a noteworthy benefit to be considering.

Interior Comfort

Every inch counts when it comes to interior space and the comfort that your sedan can provide you and your guests. With this said, you will be thrilled to stretch out in both the front and back seats of the spaciously redesigned Subaru Impreza, put together with both a longer and wider frame. This vehicle offers more front head and leg room for drivers and front passengers to get acclimated with, along with more rear head and shoulder room so passengers in the back get to enjoy their own space. You can anticipate feeling a bit more crammed in the Honda Civic in these areas, something that can get old after a long day of traveling.


Both Honda and Subaru are well regarded on the safety design fronts, as the models frequently do well in government crash test ratings and with advanced safety technology. But when it comes to the innovative system that you will prefer to keep you and your family safe, you will want to side with the Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. This gives you a read of how traffic is flowing, can help you get the most out of your cruise control settings, and alert you when you begin to veer into another lane. It has received the highest rating you can possibly earn with IIHS crash testing, and is an option for the Subaru Impreza model you choose to learn more about.

Similar vehicles still have differences that set one apart from another, and that is the case with the Subaru Impreza when compared to the new Honda Civic.
