  • Sport-driving par excellence. A turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine propels Subaru WRX with a stellar 268 horsepower. The powerplant's horizontally opposed, with lateral piston positioning for an impeccable balance of low center of gravity and traction control. Ford Focus ST comes in second at 252 horsepower, with Volkswagen Golf GTI bringing up the rear at 210 horsepower.
  • The all-wheel pulling power to make the grade. In a new Subaru WRX, the automaker's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard, making the sports sedan a firm plant during maneuvers. That's not the case for either Focus ST or Golf GTI. Factor in the longer WRX wheelbase, at 180.9 inches, as well as its shorter turning circle of 35.4 feet, and both ride stability and slipping in and out where space is at a premium become a matter of course.
  • Sports car space-efficiency with extra room where you need it. 96.6 cubic feet of passenger capacity sprawls in WRX, ahead of both the new Ford Focus ST and VW Golf GTI. Moreover, it comprehends an edge on front headroom and legroom as well as rear shoulder room. So, whether you're on your own pleasure cruise or taking along a fellow enthusiast, you can rest assured of comfort where it matters.

What's more, though Focus ST and Golf GTI might edge out Subaru WRX in total MSRP, at about $26K each to that of WRX at approximately $27,855, a touch extra investment earns you the performance edge. That's not to mention the host of state-of-the-art features you've come to expect from a new Subaru sedan, from Active Torque Vectoring for razor-sharp turn-in handling to a four-wheel independent suspension sport-tuned for the track. Subaru WRX even plays host to entertainment accouterments like a standard 6.2-inch SUBARU STARLINK&#trade; multimedia infotainment system with Pandora, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and Aha support, HD Radio, SiriusXM® compatibility, Bluetooth wireless streaming and hands-free calling, and more.
