When it comes to vehicle design, Subaru takes a no-nonsense approach, which results in vehicles that are aesthetically pleasing without the frills. With a flair for sport, the Subaru WRX is the clear winner in terms of style. The sleek styling and fantastic contours let other drivers know that you mean business! The newest WRX model is based around the Impreza sedan, which is the epitome of style. The Volkswagen GTI, while stylish, still holds the hatchback model which can be a little awkward when considering a performance-driven vehicle. The interior of the Subaru also holds true to Subaru's no-nonsense aesthetic, with classy, basic features.

The WRX also wins under the hood. The direct-injection turbocharged 2.0-liter "boxer" turbo four maintains 268 horsepower, and 258 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 revolutions per minute. The GTI's engine, on the other hand, only produces 210 horsepower, with 258 pound-feet of torque. If you're looking for a seriously powerful drive and zippy acceleration, consider the 2015 Subaru WRX! Also remember that all Subaru models come with all-wheel drive, while the GTI only offers front-wheel drive.
