Efficient Power & Performance

We all spend a lot of time behind the wheel so let's enjoy the drive while getting the most out of each tank. The Mazda3 has two engines to choose from, a 155 horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder and a 2.5L four-cylinder with 184 horsepower. While the Mazda3 has more horsepower than the Impreza's 152 horsepower 2.0L BOXER engine, the Impreza is more efficient, will last longer and delivers a smoother ride. The BOXER engine design features pistons that move horizontally to cancel out each other's vibration. This horizontal design also puts less stress on the engine which is why 98% of Subarus sold in the last ten years are still on the road today. The Subaru Impreza also get 28 city and 37 highway MPG. The Mazda3 isn't as efficient with 26/35 MPG.

While the Civic has clear advantages in terms of its powertrain options, the Impreza's standard all-wheel drive gives it a leg up. Its advanced EyeSight Driver Assist System also gives Impreza drivers a uniquely powerful safety system.
