So guys im going straight to the point. I bought a 1999 1.4 Peugeot 306 for 100 euro with a blown gasket, fixed it and swapped for a 1997 1.5 Honda Civic Ek3 Vtec-e that was put up for 1800 euro. And now i driven it for a while and it has come to my attention that there are a lot of 2002-2004 put up for sale and swap im mostly interested in 1.6 for start for cheaper insurance and im thinking about selling or swapping my Civic for a Subaru and this is where my question comes in mostly for British and Irish users. Only thing im concerned about is that my Civic puts out 114 horsepower to the wheels and Subaru only has 95 hp so thats the main thing. I always wanted a Subaru even just for the flat4 sound. So please Subaru owners here ok. Thanks

1.Is the acceleration any good on a 1.6 Impreza?

2.How is it with petrol?

3.Is insurance expensive for it?

4.Is it better than a 1.5 Vtec Civic?

5.Should i try to get a Scooby?

1) No. Less than 100bhp and a whole load of weight (upwards of 1400kg) does not make for reasonable progress. 4WD will be slower thanks to transmission losses and 150kg worth of extra drivetrain.

2) Flat engines tend to be on the thirsty side compared to straight ones, but fuel economy should be average as long as it's the FWD Impreza rather than a 4WD one.

3) Yes, probably, as cars are grouped by insurance companies by marque then model, so the high accident rate of powerful Imprezas will impact on it.

4) That's for you to judge, "better" is subjective. Personally, I'd say no.

5) If you want one, then by all means. In your position I wouldn't; 1.6 Imprezas are the reserve of geriatrics and farm hands.

I'll be brief with my answer here. About the impreza, I don't have one but someone in my immediate family does and it's rubbish. Unless you really must have a Subaru I would keep the Civic. Its a cheap way to get a 4x4 but besides from that, it has very little going for it.

1. No, not at all, although it is better than let's say a 1.6 Passat.

2. Bad. 11l/100km average (21 MPG & 26 MPG UK)

3. www.4thelads.ie

4. No.

5. Yes. But only in the STI form.
