2020 Subaru WRX

See How the Subaru WRX Compares to the Competition at Castle Subaru

Pound for pound, the 2020 Subaru WRX is the sports car you've been dreaming of packed with standard equipment, an impressive engine package, and the comfort and capability to back it up, it's no surprise that our drivers love to climb into the driver's seat. Even when compared to models like the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Hyundai Veloster, and Honda Civic Si, the WRX demonstrates why it's the preferred model daily. Our Subaru team has taken the above models and compared them for you, so you can spend less time doing research and more time experiencing what the 2020 WRX can do while at the wheel.

Subaru WRX vs Volkswagen Golf GTI

  • All-Wheel Drive: If you're looking for the car that grips the road best, the Subaru WRX comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Golf GTI doesn't offer this at all.
  • Engine Performance: Both models come standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, but the Subaru WRX does it better with 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The Volkswagen car delivers 228 horsepower and similar torque output.
  • Fuel Capacity: The Volkswagen Golf GTI offers an impressive fuel economy but lacks a large enough gas tank to avoid the gas pump for too long. The Subaru WRX equips a 15.9-gallon gas tank to the Golf's 13.2-gallon tank.

Subaru WRX vs Hyundai Veloster

  • Engine Performance: While the Hyundai Veloster offers a 2.0-liter and 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, neither compares to the base powertrain from the Subaru WRX, which far outperforms in horsepower and torque output.
  • Performance Equipment: Both models are offered as sports-tuned options. However, the Subaru WRX offers optional features like a high-performance STI sport-tuned independent suspension and a Brembo® performance braking system. The Veloster noticeably lacks these features.
  • Passenger Space: Even though both options are made for speed, that doesn't mean they shouldn't provide a high-level of comfort. The Subaru WRX offers its passengers 96.6 cubic feet of space to stretch out, while the Hyundai limits passengers with only 89.9 cubic feet.

Subaru WRX vs Honda Civic Si

  • Engine Performance: The Civic Si only offers one engine option, a 1.5-liter turbocharged powertrain that delivers 205 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. The Subaru WRX far outpaces this with 2.0-liter turbocharged power and can further shine with an available 2.5-liter turbocharged option that pumps out 310 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque.
  • All-Wheel Drive: Taking curves is much easier with the Subaru WRX's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Honda Civic Si has no similar feature for its sport-car model.
  • Fuel Tank Capacity: The Honda Civic Si is efficient, but it also requires drivers to take a stop at the gas tank often with its 12.39-gallon gas tank. The Subaru WRX equips a larger 15.9-gallon tank, letting you go further on one fill-up.
