2018 Subaru Impreza vs. 2018 Honda Civic

  • Our automaker's SUBARU BOXER flat-four engine is designed to work in concert with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the permanent, always-on AWD system that comes standard throughout the 2018 Impreza lineup. It's low-maintenance, minimizes moving parts, and delivers the reliable balance and command of traction on the road and the unbeaten path alike that we Atlanta-area drivers need for our diverse terrain and even rougher weather. Honda civic offers standard and turbo I4 engine options that can't make the same claim and its lineup doesn't offer AWD at all.
  • 145 pound-feet of torque and a sharper 35.4-foot turning circle between curbs make Impreza both more energetic and better able to maneuver in smaller spaces. The new Civic offers less pull at 138 pound-feet and a bulkier 35.7 feet respectively. Bring features like Active Torque Vectoring into the mix, standard in Impreza 2.0i Sport, and you can tackle those corners confidently. Civic doesn't offer the feature.
  • There's even a more capacious 13.2-gallon fuel tank to take advantage of, making for fewer trips to the pump in Marietta. Honda's weighs in at only 12.4 gallons.
  • 112.1 cubic feet of space for passengers outpaces Civic at 97.8, meaning more front head and leg room for you and yours to sprawl out as well as better head and shoulder room in the cabin behind. Even heated front seats are standard in models like Impreza 2.0i Premium. That's comfort available earlier in the lineup than in Honda's, which requires a jump to Civic EX-T at the midrange.

  • Our base-model 6.5-inch SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia infotainment system likewise surpasses Honda's base 5-inch color LCD offering. That's easier-to-view entertainment and connectivity control well within your reach. Moreover, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard for in-dash smartphone control. You have to graduate to Civic EX to get the same access to your favorite apps.
  • At higher trims, you can even enjoy 8.0-inch STARLINK Multimedia Plus and Multimedia Navigation variants of the celebrated base system. Honda's reaches only 7-inches. Plus, whereas ours incorporates GPS capabilities in the system itself, with Honda navigation is a separate feature, and it's only standard in the top-of-the-line Civic Touring.
  • Both models receive five stars overall from the NHTSA for withstanding crash testing, but Impreza also gets rated a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS. That means a highest Good rating across the board as well as superior front crash prevention with proper equipment. Civic's headlights rate poorly, and its child seat anchor (LATCH) system only gets an acceptable rating, far short of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest honors.
  • At a bottom line around $19,355, a new 2018 Subaru Impreza is even less expensive at base than a new 2018 Honda Civic, which costs approximately $19,835.
