Default Honda Civic vs. Subaru Impreza

In a race, which car would you choose: Honda Civic or Subaru Impreza? I've heard the Impreza can hold it's own against the Civic when it comes to speed mostly because it carries a bigger engine. I assume you would have to mod it out to match the Impreza's performance... what kind of customizations would you make to boost the Civic's speed?

Are we talking just a standard impreza, or like a WRX or STI? And depends on the civic, I wouldnt buy any civic other than a 92-00 model unless it was an EP Hatch Si.

Say an '00 - '01 WRX and a late 90's Civic Si.

Agreed, I've always preferred the subaru myself.

When you say late 90's, do you mean an EK (99-00) Si, or like a '95 Si hatch? If the 92-95 Si was stock, it would get spanked. Probably would be a semi-close race in a 99-00 though, all depends on the driver, but I think the Civic would probably get beat. I might be able to hang with a stock WRX in my '99. An STI though, no wayy...

If you have money to buy a newer civic, you can get a 04/05 S2000 for that price if you like it

I personally don't like either of those options, but get what you like. Test drive each if you want.
