Subaru WRX vs Volkswagen Golf GTI

Described as the original hot hatch, the Volkswagen Golf GTI has a lot of pressure on it to live up to that billing. But how does the original hot hatch stack up to the rally legend? Take a look below.

  • The Subaru WRX continues to deliver the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that has made the Subaru lineup so legendary, and the Golf GTI relies on a front wheel drive system with no comparable AWD option.
  • Despite its hatchback layout, the Golf GTI has less passenger volume to offer than the WRX, making for a less comfortable experience for everyone within the vehicle.
  • The Subaru WRX continues to offer the high-performance identity that drivers expect, with 268-horsepower to the 210-horsepower of the Golf GTI, it stands out as a superior option.
  • With EyeSight® safety options and the STARLINK™ in-vehicle entertainment options, the WRX cements its position as a superior option for drivers.

Subaru WRX vs Honda Civic

Both the Subaru WRX and Honda Civic have been some of the most impressive vehicles available in any segment, continually reshaping the market with impressive performance and innovation. How do the two latest versions compare to each other? See it below.

  • Powered by a gutsy turbocharged four-cylinder, the Subaru WRX delivers immense power to drivers, fully living up to the performance identity that it has cultivated, the new WRX provides exceptional 268-horsepower performance.
  • Tied to this, is the continued availability of manual transmissions, which the Civic doesn't offer, and which many performance purists crave.
  • The Subaru WRX continues to offer the EyeSight® system to enhance the safety and intelligence of the vehicle. And this should also continue to earn the incredible high safety ratings that have become so closely tied to the Subaru brand.
  • The sporty suspension of the WRX makes for more dynamic handling, along with the dynamic torque vectoring system, which the Civic can't match.



Subaru WRX vs Ford Focus

The Ford Focus is one of the flagship models of the Ford lineup, delivering thrilling performance to drivers. But can it match the dynamic performance of the Subaru WRX?

  • The Ford Focus comes in many performance variants, although they require significant investment, while even the base WRX models will provide drivers with the thrills they seek.
  • The WRX delivers far superior passenger volume, 96.6 cubic feet compared to the spares 90.7 of the Ford Focus.
  • While the Ford Focus is touted as a performance model, at its base it cannot compare to the muscle of the WRX. 268-Horsepower effortlessly outperforms the 160-horsepower of the Focus, and pushes to a position of superiority.
  • When equipped with the EyeSight® safety systems, the WRX delivers award-winning safety systems, and while the Focus makes a valiant effort in terms of safety, it falls short of the legacy offered by the Subaru WRX.
