How Does the Subaru WRX Outperform the Competition?

When it comes to finding an athletic sedan that's equipped to help you take on and enjoy all of life's obstacles, there's no other vehicle on the market quite like the new Subaru WRX. 

For years, the WRX has been a staple among drivers all over the country. With tremendous capability on and off road, head turning good looks and aggressive power, the WRX is every adventurous driver's ideal ride. 

Just because the WRX is significantly sporty, however, doesn't mean that it can't also be your daily commuter. With a comfortable cabin for five, high-tech features integrated everywhere you look, and the ability to take on any weather condition, you'll have no problem taking on the morning commute behind the wheel of the WRX. 

In order to demonstrate just how special the WRX is, we're going to compare it to the new Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf! Scroll below for more!

Subaru WRX vs. Ford Focus

  • If you're looking for power and athleticism, the WRX is the right choice for you. The WRX offers a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged Subaru Boxer engine that produces 268-horsepower. The Focus on the other hand, comes equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces just 160-horsepower. That's over 100-horsepower more that you can take advantage of in the WRX.
  • Whether you find yourself on city streets, country back roads or endless highways, the new WRX comes equipped with standard quick-ratio steering and high-performance suspension so you can always enjoy more athletic and precise handling and steering. The Focus, on the other hand, does not offer such features.
  • In order to provide you with the capability to take on any weather condition and terrain with the same level of ease as you would a city road in the summer, the new WRX comes equipped with standard all-wheel drive while the Focus comes equipped with standard front-wheel drive.
  • The WRX comes with standard alloy wheels which are lighter and offer better performance than the standard steel wheels that come equipped on the Focus.

Subaru WRX vs. Volkswagen Golf

  • The standard engine on the new WRX far out powers the standard engine on the new Golf. The WRX comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged Subaru Boxer engine that produces 268-horsepower while the Golf comes with a standard 1.8-liter turbo engine that produces 170-horsepower. Furthermore, the Boxer engine offers a lower center of gravity for better stability through corners and turns.
  • The base model WRX comes comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission while the Golf comes with a five-speed manual transmission.
  • The WRX comes with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive while the golf comes with standard front-wheel drive.
  • The new WRX offers more front headroom and legroom than the Golf does, so you can stretch out and relax more easily behind the wheel.
