Compare the 2019 Subaru WRX to Competing Sport Sedans in Portage, IN


Shopping for a sport sedan with riveting capability, all-wheel drive command and a comfortable cabin layout? Here at Castle Subaru of Portage, we recommend the 2019 Subaru WRX as an intriguing option to serve this dynamic yet relaxing role as your next daily driver.


With turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine production, impressive maximum passenger volume inside, Subaru EyeSight driver-assist support and several other enticing features, this new Subaru model is a clear favorite over sport sedan competitors within the segment. Consider the head-to-head comparison specifics and why we prefer the 2019 Subaru WRX to respective Volkswagen Golf GTI, Ford Focus ST and Honda Civic Si challengers.


2019 Subaru WRX vs. 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI

  • Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive - For all its explosive under-the-hood output and exhilarating potential in motion, the 2019 Subaru WRX offers control that remains consistent from one season to the next. Symmetrical all-wheel drive, a standard offering that optimizes road surface traction, isn't available for the competing base Volkswagen Golf GTI model
  • Engine Output - On the production side, the new Subaru WRX dominates. This new Subaru model's 268-horsepower SUBARU BOXER engine is preferable to the Volkswagen Golf GTI starting powertrain, creating just 228 horsepower. Added confidence goes a long way for the journey ahead
  • Passenger Space - The new Subaru WRX leads its competition in maximum passenger space, enjoying an edge of 96.6 cubic feet to 93.5 cubic feet. This advantage is advantageous for accompanying passengers, settling into extra front head, front leg and rear shoulder room

2019 Subaru WRX vs. 2018 Ford Focus ST

  • Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive - From slick surfaces to icy road conditions, the new Subaru WRX remains in command. This model's standard symmetrical all-wheel drive layout moves powers to wheels with the best control, a real-time transfer that the Ford Focus ST fails to match by not offering all-wheel drive
  • Engine Output - With standard 268 horsepower produced under the hood, the turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine of the 2019 Subaru WRX stands out when comparing motors of both sport sedans. The Ford Focus ST can't keep up with 252-horsepower engine production
  • Passenger Space - How do you offer greater front head, front leg, rear leg and rear shoulder space for guests that choose to come along for the ride? By featuring 96.6 cubic feet of maximum cabin space like the new Subaru WRX, preferable to 93.5 cubic feet of the Ford model's interior


2019 Subaru WRX vs. 2019 Honda Civic Si

  • Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive - To avoid a slip on the open road and loss of control behind the wheel, standard symmetrical all-wheel drive sends power to wheels with the most grip, steadying your journey in the new Subaru WRX. The Honda Civic Si doesn't match these reassurance expectations. This competing sport sedan doesn't feature base all-wheel drive
  • Engine Output - Creating standard 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet - compared to 205 horsepower and 192 pound-feet production of the base Civic Si engine - the turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine capacity of the new Subaru WRX stands out. Power your way forward with minimal excuses inside this new Subaru sport sedan
  • Passenger Space - The new Subaru WRX features 96.6 cubic feet of maximum cabin volume compared to 95 cubic feet of total interior space for the Honda Civic Si. Extra inches of head space in both rows, along with more leg room up front, make your upcoming trip both more relaxing and rewarding
