The Subaru Impreza VS The Honda Civic

There is a number of similar makes and models for Cincinnati drivers to choose from when shopping for a new car. Which can make choosing the right one difficult and the best way to decide which car is best for you is by comparing your favorite models. This way you can see which vehicle is the best bang for your buck and has the features you are looking for. So to help our customers easily find the information they need to make a well-informed decision we have done the hard work and compared the Subaru Impreza to the Honda Civic in all the ways that matter most. Then the only thing that is left to do is come down to Joseph Subaru of Florence and go for a test drive.



For many Florence drivers fuel efficiency is the most important thing a new car has to offer. As well as being fun to drive and dependable in all kinds of weather. And when the snow starts falling you can count on the Subaru Impreza to get you where you need to go safely. Every Subaru Impreza comes equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard to unmatched traction and control. The Honda Civic is not available with all-wheel-drive.


When counting horses under the hood the Honda Civic has slightly more power but it is a close race. The Civics' standard engine is a 2.0L four-cylinder with 158 horsepower. Powering the Impreza is also a 2.0L four-cylinder. The but Impreza features a BOXER engine with 152 horsepower. The BOXER engine is unique to Subaru and has a flat-four design versus the V shape engine of the Civic. This has several benefits for smooth and efficient performance. The BOXER engine takes up less room under the hood for a lower center of gravity. The pistons of the BOXER engine also move from side to side which cancels out each other's vibrations for an incredibly smooth ride.
