2012 Subaru Impreza vs. 2012 Honda Civic


The small car market is filled with affordable, fuel efficient and fun to drive cars. The Honda Civic is a small car known for its fuel economy and boring, but reliable transportation. Subaru introduced the 2012 Subaru Impreza to compete with Civic, Corolla and sportier Mazda3. You care about safety, interior comforts and of course the appearance or curbside appeal. You want something comfortable to drive to work, and maybe to the mountains for a long-weekend. If you look at a comparison chart, you may notice both vehicles have similar if not identical features, but Subaru's Symmetrical AWD and efficient and reliable Boxer engine sets it apart from the Civic.


Fuel Economy


Why are Honda Civics one of the most popular small cars? You already know the answer to this question, which of course are their MPG ratings.  The 2012 Honda Civic achieves 36 to 39 MPG highway, which is great for commuters. However, did you know that the 2012 Subaru Impreza also achieves 36 MPG highway and has standard symmetrical AWD, making it the most fuel efficient AWD vehicle in America? You don't have to sacrifice fuel economy for life saving features such as symmetrical AWD. Go ahead, test drive a 2012 Honda Civic and then come and test drive a 2012 Subaru Impreza and see why the Subaru is sportier, better looking and more fun to drive.

Appearance - Sharp lines, stylish and hawk eye headlights

In 2006-2011 Honda did something out of the ordinary and gave way to the future styled Honda Civic. However, for 2012, the Civic goes back to its conservative roots and joins the boring and bland. The 2012 Subaru Impreza features sexy stylish curves and lines, hawk eye headlights and stylish taillights. The redesign on the Impreza resembles the stunning Subaru flagship vehicle, the Legacy. However, the smaller profile gives way to a lower MSRP and greater fuel economy. When it comes to turning heads and impressing the neighbors, don't go and buy the most mainstream vehicle available, the Civic. Try something new, go with the reliable, fuel-efficient, and sporty 2012 Impreza. Critics are touting the Impreza as the best small vehicle for the money due to safety, luxurious interiors and low price.

Safety - Standard on the 2012 Impreza


Both the Impreza and Civic come standard with SRS airbags, antilock brakes and more passive and active safety features than we could list on this page. Visit the Subaru Safety Center to learn more about Subaru's safety features. The main difference between the two vehicles is the standard symmetrical AWD system on the Impreza. AWD is a life saving feature in any snowy or rainy location. Symmetrical AWD is standard on all Subaru models and does not cost you any extra! If you want AWD on a Honda you need to pay an additional $10,000 for the CR-V, it's not even available on any Civic trim. Shouldn't life saving safety features come standard? We thought so.
