Honda Civic SedanThe 2016 Subaru Impreza has recently become a popular option among auto buyers, but does it really have the mpg you need to feel secure in your purchase? We know that nothing can limit the value of your new small car more than poor gas mileage. To help you make your dollar go further, we’ve set up a comparison between this year’s Impreza and the 2016 Honda Civic. Honda has always been known for its refined, efficient, and affordable small cars, and, as you might expect, the Civic puts the Impreza to shame.

Go Further with Honda

The 2016 Civic LX Sedan with CVT is priced at 19,440 MSRP,* just slightly higher than the Impreza’s $18,795 MSRP, but you’ll quickly make your money back when you decide to invest in the Honda. Whether you’re driving in the city or on the highway, the Civic’s exceptional fuel economy is sure to save you plenty of cash.

By the numbers, it’s really no contest at all. The 2016 Impreza is able to put up modest but respectable ratings, achieving 25 mpg in the city, 34 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined. Still, it’s a far cry from the 2016 Civic LX CVT, which accelerates ahead of its competitors with an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city, 41 mpg highway, and 35 mpg combined!** With that difference, you’ll experience the Civic’s superiority every time you hit the road.

Engine Stats and Performance

It’s also worth noting that the 2016 Honda Civic doesn’t have to compromise on performance in order to optimize its fuel economy! Although both the Civic and the Impreza are equipped with similar engines—a 2.0L I4 and a 2.0L H4, respectively—the Honda gets 158 hp to the Subaru’s 148!
