How would you like to drive a stylish and sporty car that is more spacious, more powerful, and more fuel-efficient than its competition? If that sounds like a winning combination to you, then you must see the all- Honda Civic. Honda's wildly popular compact sedan has been completely redesigned for 2016, once again putting its compact car rivals on notice. Vatland Honda, serving the communities near Ft. Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Sebastian, and Palm Bay & Fellsmere, invites local drivers to visit our Vero Beach, FL showroom to test drive and experience the all- Civic.
How does the all- Honda Civic compare to Subaru's Impreza compact car?
While both of these compact car rivals come standard with 2.0-liter engines, the all- Honda Civic is significantly more fuel-efficient than Subaru's Impreza. The all-new Civic's 2.0-liter engine, when connected to Honda's highly efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT), helps the Civic return an impressive 31 city/41 highway/35 combined mpg rating. Subaru's 2.0-liter is not necessarily inefficient, but it is connected to Subaru's all-wheel drive system, which certainly hampers fuel economy. While some will see the fact that the Impreza comes standard with AWD as a positive, if you are looking for a fuel-efficient small car, you will have to keep looking. The best that the 2016 Impreza can muster in the fuel economy department is a 25 city/34 highway/28 combined mpg rating. The EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating of a vehicle gives a good overall picture of a car's efficiency, and from the numbers we can see that on average, Honda's all-new Civic tops the Impreza by a whopping seven mpg!
The all- Honda Civic is not only significantly more fuel-efficient than its rival from Subaru; it is also more powerful! The Civic's potent 2.0-liter engine develops a robust 158 horses and 138 lb-ft of torque; the Impreza's 2.0, on the other hand, is down on horsepower when compared to the Civic, as it is rated at 145 hp. If you are looking for a compact sedan that is not only fun around the corners, but also has the power on tap for passing and merging, then choose the 2016 Civic.
If passenger comfort and space matters to you when choosing a compact car, then you had better have the all-new Civic on your test drive list! The latest version of Honda's iconic compact car offers not only more passenger volume than the Impreza, but also more cargo space. In all, the 2016 Civic features more trunk space, front headroom, front legroom, second-row legroom, as well as more front and rear shoulder room. With the all-new Civic, Honda has proven that they can build a car that is larger, more spacious, and more powerful than the competition, while still winning the fuel economy battle.
While the 2016 Honda Civic compact sedan and its rival from Subaru, the 2016 Impreza sedan, have similar starting prices, once you look beyond the prices you will see that the Civic comes much better equipped. Built into the price of a 2016 Impreza is Subaru's all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which may explain why the different trim levels of Civics and Imprezas don't quite match up when it comes to standard or available interior amenities, for example. With the 2016 Civic sedan, you get features like Pandora internet radio connectivity and LED Front DRL and Taillights as standard, neither of which come standard on the base Impreza. Other standard features on the all- Honda Civic compact sedan include:
The differences between the features offered on these two compact cars even more striking when you look at what is available on each model. The base 2016 Civic sedan is available with Honda Sensing™, Honda's suite of safety and driver assistive-technologies, while Subaru does not have any similar technologies available on the base Impreza model. Some of the available features on the 2016 Honda Civic sedan include:
The striking, all-new design of the 2016 Honda Civic has been applauded by automotive journalists and consumers alike. Its sculpted lines, slanted roofline, and wraparound taillight design help make the 2016 model the most exciting Civic in years! Of course, its interior has also received a full redesign, too, and has the very latest technologies that Honda has to offer. Subaru's current Impreza is looking a bit long in the tooth, as its design is a number of years old and wasn't very inspiring to begin with. The 2016 Civic is offered in both a sedan and coupe body style, each of which gives off a very sporty character. The Impreza can be had in either a sedan or hatchback/wagon design, with the latter being the more attractive and versatile choice. If you want to drive the most stylish compact car on the block, or in the city for that matter, choose the all-new, redesigned 2016 Honda Civic!
