Two great stylish vehicles are the Honda Civic and the 2017 Subaru Impreza and both offer up great specs and lots of technology. But which comes out ahead?
The 2017 Subaru Impreza is a vehicle that offers plenty of agility and the ride is fun along with being comfortable. The engine offered are the same as on the previous version and this is the 2 litre offering six speed gearing with 152 horses if you go for the lower end or the CVT.
The Subaru Impreza comes with suspension that is sporty, active torque vectoring and 18 inch alloy wheels. There is plenty to like about it and the handling is good, while the styling is sleek looking. The all-wheel drive is standard and this is one of the most efficient AWDs on the market. Some people have said that the style is a bit on the busy side and the interior may be better.
The 2016 Honda Civic comes with a great shape and the fuel economy is superb. It has a superb ride quality and the steering is good, with a lot of space in the back for passengers and in the cargo area. The standard engine doesn’t offer much by way of excitement and the base trim isn’t all that sharp looking.
The Honda Civic comes with base versions that offer linear handling and the 1 litre in-line four offers 158 horsepower and has 6 speed manual transmission in the LX version and CVT on other versions. You should get about 31mpg combined. The base version has 16 inch tires and it offers up a good ride quality. The turbocharged version offers tires that are better and hydraulic suspension, with a composed ride.
So would you choose the 2017 Subaru Impreza or would you go for the 201 Honda Civic?
