Compare the New 2016 Subaru WRX

How the Subaru WRX Powers Ahead of the Sporty Sedan Competition

The Subaru WRX spells F-U-N in a way not many four-door sedans can echo. The WRX is a performance-oriented, family-friendly car that offers a balance of power and safety, engagement and accommodations, that goes unmatched in its segment.

And while, model year after model year, the WRX proves to Norwalk, Rye, Greenwich and Danbury, CT drivers that's it's a one-in-a-million sedan, we know that smart buyers comparison shop before they settle on a new vehicle. Well, we've done some of the legwork for you, pitting the WRX against some of its rivals -- the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Ford Focus -- and highlighting just how unique this sporty sedan is in its cookie-cutter class.


Test Drive a Subaru WRX

The Subaru WRX versus the Volkswagen Golf GTI

  • The WRX stands out in the performance-car crowd with standard all-wheel drive (AWD). That means you can enjoy all of the driver engagement the WRX has to offer year-round, regardless of what Mother Nature throws your way. The Golf GTI can only come equipped with a performance-limiting front-wheel drive.
  • While the Golf GTI is turbocharged, the WRX offers two turbo engine options, and both are more powerful than the Golf GTI's single offering. And that eagerness is further enhance with a tighter turning radius than that of the Golf GTI.
  • The WRX is both longer and taller than the Golf GTI, boasting more front and rear legroom, front headroom, and rear shoulder room -- simply put, more overall passenger space. Who doesn't want to share in the fun of a performance car with others?
  • And despite its beastly powertrain, the WRX has a more domesticated side that offers some standard creature comforts that the Golf GTI doesn't, like automatic climate control and two LCD screens.

The Subaru WRX versus the Ford Focus

  • Year-round surefootedness is again the WRX's strong suit, coming equipped with a standard AWD system that overshadows the lackluster front-wheel drive of the Focus.
  • The WRX is a performance vehicle in a way the Focus isn't, thanks to two turbocharged engine options that blow every Focus variant out of the water when it comes to horsepower, torque, and overall driver engagement.
  • A longer and taller design gives WRX passengers more front headroom and legroom to work with, versus the more modest dimensions of the Focus.
  • A standard two-screen setup, automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel give the WRX an edge of the less-equipped Focus base model.
  • The WRX offers a bundle of driver assistance features, like adaptive cruise control, automated pre-collision braking, lane-keep assistance, and turn-responsive headlights. The Focus cannot come equipped with any of these safety features.
