How does the new Subaru Impreza fare against competitors like the new Honda Civic

You might not have noticed it, but the compact car market has gotten a lot more competitive in recent years. And while there's strong compact cars out there all around the greater Boston area, the new Subaru Impreza and the new Honda Civic have one of the fiercest rivalries around. Now, if you're like a lot of folks from Natick to Belmont, you've done some research into which of the two is best for you. Well, allow us to expand on that research with a competitive comparison between our new Subaru Impreza for sale here in Acton and the Honda Civic.

Plus, the new Subaru Impreza Hatchback may be a small car, but it's got a wealth of luggage space inside. In fact, with up to 55.3 cubic-feet of cargo space in total, the new Subaru Impreza is a lot roomier than you might expect.
