Compare Against the Competition

Design

Sleek, stylish, and cool, the WRX is a sight to behold as it cruises past other models. The competition, most notably the Honda Civic Type R, offers flashy packages and distinct looks, but none are made for the thrill of the open road quite like the new WRX. The Subaru sports car also LED Steering Responsive Headlights, a feature that curves with the road as you twist and turn. No other lineup offers a similar feature, making them the less ideal option for nighttime driving.

Inside, you'll find that the WRX, Golf GTI, and Focus ST comfortably seat five passengers - the Civic Type R maxes out at four seats. However, only the Honda Civic Type R can match the Subaru WRX in interior seating space, with just 0.4-cubic feet more of interior volume. While the Honda holds the slight edge, it will also cost you nearly $10,000 more to enjoy a similar experience - the WRX is the more affordable option that doesn't sacrifice comfort. The WRX also enjoys the most flexibility in its lineup, offering power-adjustable seating the other sports cars can't quite match.

Performance & Technology

Performance

When it comes to pure performance, only the Honda Civic offers more standard horsepower than the base SUBARU BOXER® 2.0-liter DOHC turbocharged engine. The Ford Focus tops out at 252 horsepower, while the Volkswagen Golf GTI doesn't even break 230 horsepower with its four-cylinder engine. The Subaru WRX also offers a 2.5-liter turbocharged powertrain, which beats out the standard Civic by about 4-horsepower. To top it all off, only the WRX comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for your added convenience - none of its competition even offers AWD!

Technology

If you're looking to pay nearly $10,000 more for the latest technology, the Honda Civic Type R might be right up your alley. If you're looking to keep your next sports car purchase more affordable, the Focus ST, Golf GTI, and WRX are more your style. The WRX can upgrade to match the screen size and functionality standard to the Honda lineup, but you'll still be paying less for the STI trim, which includes the more powerful engine and a host of other benefits. The Volkswagen model's technology leaves something else to be desired, and the Ford Focus won't quite match up as the most recent model doesn't offer the same level of quality standard to the Subaru WRX lineup!
