The tenth generation Honda Civic comes in a range of configurations that continue to charm Canadians. The Civic is as efficient, technological and powerful as ever, while remaining affordable. Today we compare it to the 2020 Subaru Impreza, a compact car that seems popular at first glance, but shows a few flaws compared to our beloved Civic.

First off, the Civic offers more possibilities than the Impreza, thanks to the sedan, coupe and hatchback body styles. In addition, the Civic Si and Type-R are built specifically for sports driving enthusiasts.

More engine choices and power levels in the 2020 Honda Civic

Most Civic versions rely on a 2.0 L four-cylinder engine that generates 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque with a competitive fuel efficiency rating of 7.9 L/100 km and 6.1 L/100 km (city / highway). For example, the sedan lineup also offers a powerful 172-horsepower 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in the Touring Edition with the CVT, an engine that can provide 205 horsepower when paired with the six-speed manual in the Si version.

The Impreza is equipped with a 2.0 L four-cylinder engine that produces only 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, which is less than the rated horsepower of the Civic's engines. But the Impreza is also in the rearview mirror of the Civic when it comes to fuel efficiency. With models equipped with a manual transmission rated at 10.1 L/100 km city and 7.6 L/100 km on the highway and Imprezas with automatic transmission at 8.4 L / 100 km and 6.6 L / 100 km under the same respective conditions, we can clearly conclude that the Civic is more affordable to own.

The Civic offers either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Impreza uses a five-speed manual transmission and optional CVT.

The 2020 Honda Civic offers a much more practical interior volume

The Civic provides more shoulder and legroom in the back than the Impreza, which will please your passengers. The Civic hatchback also offers the largest cargo volume behind the rear seats at 728 L compared to 588 L for the Impreza.

The Honda Civic is still at the top of the compact car pyramid. And the 2020 edition is more impressive than ever. You can buy your car online with us. Our representatives await your call and can answer all of your questions.
