The 2015 Subaru WRX is often thought of as a low-price compact that’s comfortable on the track, and yet we think that our Detroit Metro drivers shopping for a car with power, style, and a track-ready aesthetic can do better with the 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe. Not only is the new Civic Si more affordably priced than the WRX, it’s got a better suite of features too.
The Civic Si Offers More for Less
We know that many drivers want more on their vehicles, and not only does the Civic Si Coupe offer you more than the WRX, it does so at a lower price. The 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe is priced starting at $22,890 (MSRP)* to the 2015 Subaru WRX’s $26,295. Maybe you’re expecting the WRX to offer drivers more, but that’s just not the case.
The Civic Si Coupe comes with some of the best features in its class, including many that are either unavailable or cost extra on the 2015 WRX. The Si Coupe comes with the following standard features:
- Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
- Touchscreen infotainment system
- Built-in rearview camera
- One-touch power moonroof
Now, you can find many similar features available on the WRX, but to put it on the same level as the Civic Si Coupe, you’d need to upgrade the Subaru. And it already costs more.
To cap it all off, taking a joyride in the Civic Si will be less expensive thanks to its superior fuel economy. The 2015 Civic Si Coupe is good for an EPA-estimated 31 highway mpg** to the 28 highway mpg of the WRX.
