How Well Do Honda Sedans Compare To Subaru?

It is always a good idea for Bozeman drivers to check out what the competition has to offer when shopping for a new car. This way you can rest easy knowing you got the best car for you at the best price. Honda is one brand that many of our customers also have in mind when in the market for a new sedan. But how well does Honda compare to Subaru?

Like many other Dillon drivers, you are looking for a new sedan that is safe, reliable, built for the long road ahead, well-equipped, and most importantly, affordable. All of which are things that Subaru excels at.


Subaru and safety are the same thing and the Subaru Legacy and Impreza lead their classes with the highest possible crash test scores and are both Top Safety Pick+ vehicles. Another way that Subaru safety leaves Honda in the dust is with the highly awarded EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which has been proven to reduce rear-end collision that result with injuries by an impressive 85%. Honda Sensing is standard on the Accord and Civic but doesn't include all of the same features as EyeSight or is capable of bringing the vehicle to a complete stop.
  • EyeSight Driver Assist Technology: Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Pre-Collision Braking, and Pre-Collision Throttle Management.
  • Honda Sensing: Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System

Subaru STARLINK Safety & Security is another collection of safety features that Subaru sedans offer that Honda doesn't offer. Like Automatic Collision Notification and Stolen Vehicle Recovery. STARLINK Safety & Security also includes SOS Emergency Assist, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, diagnostic reports, and remote security functions. Another feature that only the new Subaru Legacy has to offer is Subaru DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System to reduce distracted and drowsy driving.


One major drawback for Honda sedans is they are not available with all-wheel-drive. While every Subaru comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for unmatched stability, traction, and control in all kinds of conditions. The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is legendary among Butte, MT drivers for providing them with confidence behind wheel during heavy winter storms.

Subaru vehicles are also well-known for their amazingly long-lasting quality and performance that is ready for 200,000 miles of adventure. Honda vehicles don't last nearly as long or provide the same smooth ride quality. The BOXER engine has a unique flat-four design that delivers an incredibly smooth driving experience. The pistons make side to side punches which cancel out each other's vibrations, which also puts less stress of the engine for better fuel efficiency and lasting performance. The design of the engine also takes up less room under the hood and its placement gives the Legacy and Impreza a low center of gravity.


No one in Livingston wants to pay more for less and not only are Subaru sedan better equipped and more affordable, but they also have the lowest 5-year cost to own of any brand on the road. The price of Honda sedans quickly jumps from the base model to get features like Apple CarPlay & Android Auto and a touchscreen multimedia system. Both of which are standard on every Impreza and Legacy. Subaru sedans are also available with 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity and Harmon Kardon premium audio system.
