Subaru WRX vs Volkswagen Golf GTI

The Volkswagen GTI may be described by some as the original hot hatch. But how does the original hot hatch stack up to the rally legend, the WRX? Take a look below.

  • The Subaru WRX boasts standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Golf GTI relies on a front wheel drive system with no available all-wheel-drive option.
  • Despite being a hatchback layout, the Golf GTI has less passenger volume to offer than the WRX.
  • The Subaru WRX provides a dynamic 268-horsepower. That's nearly fifty more horsepower than the 220-horsepower engine that's standard in the Golf GTI.
  • With EyeSight® now standard on CVT-equipped models 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

The Honda Civic is well-renowned for its reliability, but how does it compare to the Subaru WRX - a vehicle that's a member of the brand for which 97% of vehicles sold in the last ten years are still purported to be on the road today? See below to learn how the Civic and WRX stack up.

  • Powered by a dynamic four-cylinder equipped with a turbocharger, the Subaru WRX delivers a heavy helping of power to its drivers. With 268-horsepower, the WRX provides well over a hundred more horsepower than the Civic, which comes standard with a 158-horsepower four-cylinder engine.
  • The Honda Civic doesn't offer a manual transmission - unless of course you opt for the Civic Si. The Subaru WRX, however, is available with either a CVT or manual, depending on your preference.
  • 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, like the Subaru WRX, delivers on practicality and efficiency, while also providing a fun ride. But can it match the dynamic performance of the Subaru WRX? Find out below.

  • The Subaru WRX delivers far superior passenger volume, 96.6 cubic feet compared to the lesser 90.7 of the Ford Focus.
  • Like the Honda Civic, the Ford Focus is available in a high-performance model. But the standard Focus offers just 160-horsepower, which pales in comparison to the standard 268-horsepower WRX engine.
  • 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.
