Impreza vs Honda Civic

See How Subaru Impreza Contends with its Honda Rival Here at Our Orange, VA Subaru Dealer

On the trail of a compact sedan or hatchback to go the extra mile, choices abound and the competition can present some rugged terrain. Lucky for you, tacking into it's a breeze from behind the wheel of the Subaru Impreza, especially against models like that of Subaru's competitor, Honda Civic. Take a look and see how orienteering on your commute or road trip with Impreza often leaves Civic off the trail.

Hit the Road from Orange with Performance Prowess

  • On the path to adventure, both Subaru Impreza and Honda Civic appear up to the hike. Impreza offers a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine, putting out 152 horsepower at an energetic 145 pound-feet of torque. Honda Civic makes available 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter in-line 4-cylinder engine options, with 158 and 174 horsepower depending upon engine and torque ranging from 138 to 167 pound-feet
  • The mileage of each model remains comparable. Impreza offers an estimated up to 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway depending upon trim, while Civic makes available up to 32 city mpg and 42 highway mpg.
  • When it comes to fuel tank capacity, Subaru Impreza has almost a full gallon on Honda Civic -- 13.2 gallons to the latter's 12.39. That means less time spent at the pump for Impreza and more enjoying the excursion.

Advanced Tech and Safety Perks to Excel from Charlottesville to Culpeper, Fredericksburg, and Beyond

  • Subaru Impreza showcases a huge array of driver-assist and security features for the height of drive-time peace of mind. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard, simplifying traversing all manner of terrain and combatting diverse weather conditions. Honda Civic doesn't offer all-wheel drive.
  • Though both Impreza and Civic proffer their own electronic control systems – Impreza building in a Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS) and Civic providing its Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control system – it's Subaru Impreza that offers a more extensive gamut.
  • Subaru's EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, incorporating adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure and sway warning, and lane keep assist, dovetails with elements like Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, a high-beam assist feature, and Reverse Automatic Braking. Impreza even makes available its STARLINK Safety & Security™ suite, comprised of Automatic Collision Notification and SOS Emergency Assistance as well as Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Recovery, and diagnostic, security and remote services. Honda Civic only makes available its Honda Sensing™ technology with Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)m Road Departure Mitigation System, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, and the track-keeping Honda LaneWatch™.

Available Special Options and Trim Levels Abound

  • You'll find a Subaru Impreza trim level for a diversity of your drive preferences and tastes, from base 2.0i and 2.0i Premium to the athletic 2.0i Sport and well-appointed 2.0i Limited. Plus, Impreza appears in both sedan and five-door body styles for additional passenger volume and storage options. Honda Civic comes in but five trims, LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring, and in sedan only.
  • What's more, Impreza offers packages aplenty to personalize your ride. Take advantage of one of five EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology packages replete with advanced safety and navigation configurations as well as an optional power tilt/sliding glass moonroof, or just opt for the available Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert package, which includes a Harman Kardon speaker system upgrade. Honda Civic offers no packages, but makes available a range of accessories on demand.

Impreza vs Toyota Corolla

2018 Subaru Impreza Laps Its Toyota Competition Here in Orange, VA

Not every compact car can boast the trifecta of a spirited engine, athletic handling, and refined ride that takes "fun to drive" to the level of a pleasure cruise. Ditto for a spacious interior loaded with cutting-edge technologies to make the grade a world apart from the rest. Such is standard for the new Subaru Impreza, however, and against segment mainstays like Toyota Corolla, fresh off the factory line for a new model year, the new Subaru sedan and hatch holds its own, from performance and safety to cabin and amenities. Check out the new Impreza for yourself, and you'll see what we mean: our Orange Subaru dealer makes it a matter of course to explore just how.

More Energetic Performance

2018 Subaru Impreza 2.0i, for example, heads off the starting line packing a higher-capacity 2.0-liter flat-four SUBARU BOXER engine versus its 2018 Toyota Corolla L sibling and its 1.8-liter inline-four. But it's 2018 Impreza that takes the lead in a few key areas.

  • Subaru offers more horsepower, 152 to Corolla at 132, as well as more torque, 145 pound-feet to 128. Factor in a higher engine displacement, 1999 cc to 1798, and that means three things: more turning and pulling power, better charge for the distance to Charlottesville and beyond, and more efficient energy delivery.
  • Impreza also offers a sportier ride quality, owing to both the hands-on thrills afforded by a standard five-speed manual and the option to go the ease-of-use route with an available Lineartronic® seven-speed CVT. Toyota Corolla offers only a two-speed CVTi-S transmission. What's more, our Subie offers a rear independent suspension to keep things more limber than Corolla, which builds in one only semi-independent.

Safety Features and Technologies That Pull Ahead

  • A model to command diverse Culpeper-area terrain and power through inclement weather around Fredericksburg, VA, the new Subaru Impreza offers Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard. It's not available in 2018 Corolla.
  • Likewise, you'll find a suite of available EyeSight Driver Assist Technology ready to offer intelligent help on the road wherever you may need it. That means a gamut from adaptive cruise control and pre-collision braking to lane departure and sway warning and lane keep assist functions. Of course, these aren't to mention the availability in tandem of Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The new Corolla offers its own comparable system, Toyota Safety Sense P, bringing a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist together with Automatic High Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. However, Impreza offers the rear obstacle avoidance capabilities of optional Reverse Automatic Braking, whereas in Corolla, there's nothing comparable.
  • To keep entertainment and control the orders of the day, Impreza provides three infotainment systems to choose from: STARLINK 6.5-inch Multimedia, a STARLINK 8.0-inch Multimedia Plus variant, and one at the top of the line, STARLINK 8.0-inch Multimedia Navigation, each with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to accommodate syncing your smartphone and accessing its features right from the car's touchscreen. Toyota Corolla offers three Entune Audio system options, but neither Apple CarPlay nor Android Auto are to be found.

Ample Choice of Options and Trim Levels for the Drive

  • Subaru Impreza offers more body style choices than Toyota Corolla in its 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, 2.0i Sport, and 2.0i Limited trims, as each appear in sedan and five-door hatchback variants. Corolla and its L, LE, LE Eco, XLE, SE, and XSE trims roll up in sedan form only.
  • You'll find the same variety in personalization options. Impreza makes available Lineartronic® CVT, power tilt/sliding glass moonroof, and Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert packages, plus three EyeSight packages with driver-assist, infotainment, and audio system variants alongside a ton of accessories. Toyota Corolla weighs in similarly.
