Compare the 2023 Subaru WRX

to the Volkswagen GTI, Honda Civic Si, and Hyundai Veloster N

Shop the 2023 WRX in Brattleboro, VT

All three of these performance sedans offer engaging dynamics, fiery turbocharged engines, and plenty of modern amenities.
But the 2023 Subaru WRX is a cut above - find out why with Brattleboro Subaru today.

The Performance Advantage

Only the 2023 Subaru WRX comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, providing driving enthusiasts tons of benefits. Quick off-the-line acceleration, increased stability at high speeds, and plenty of cornering advantages make all-wheel drive a huge advantage over other vehicles. None of the competing vehicles offer an all-wheel drive version - instead opting for simple front-wheel drive.

Plus, the 2023 Subaru WRX offers 271 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. That's 30 more horsepower than the VW GTI and 71 more horsepower than the Honda Civic Si. While the Veloster N offers four more horsepower, it's only available from 6000 rpm and above - 400 rpm higher than the WRX. That means the Subaru WRX gets almost the same horsepower 400 rpm sooner than the Hyundai Veloster N. Overall, the Veloster N will perform similarly to the WRX but lack the versatility and increased traction all-wheel drive provides.

Shockingly Comfortable

While the competition comes standard with 18- and 19-inch wheels, the 2023 Subaru WRX does more with less and preserves the comfort of drivers and passengers. The 17-inch wheels that come standard offer more material between you and the road but don't sacrifice road holding and responsive handling.

Even more importantly, the 2023 Subaru WRX is the only one of the four cars that utilize a double wishbone suspension in the rear of the vehicle. This design offers a comfortable ride, and smooth driving experience, as bumps won't impact the vehicle's alignment. But, it retains the ability to be flexible with parameters like camber. With fewer moving pieces and a straightforward design, the suspension of the 2023 Subaru WRX offers plenty of advantages over the competition.

The Power of the BOXER Engine

While these vehicles share powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engines, the 2023 Subaru WRX offers inherent advantages thanks to its novel engine construction. Using opposing pistons that extend horizontally, the BOXER four-cylinder offers exceptional balance and smooth power delivery that the other cars simply can't match. Plus, a BOXER engine is mounted low on the vehicle, giving the 2023 Subaru WRX a lower center of gravity, which pays off big when it comes to handling.

Astonishing Value and Versatility

The 2023 Subaru WRX - despite offering the second most horsepower in the group - sports the second least expensive base MSRP. While the Honda Civic Si offers the lowest MSRP, it also boasts the least power and a less refined cabin. Starting at just $30,600, it offers the best balance between performance and cost, making it a compelling value.

The WRX is versatile and comfortable, too. The 2023 Subaru WRX offers over 98 inches of overall passenger volume, more than the others. It also beats the GTI, Civic Si, and Veloster N when it comes to front headroom and legroom, so if front-seat comfort is a priority, the WRX is a clear winner.

Experience the 2023 Subaru WRX for Yourself

It's clear that the VW GTI, Honda Civic Si, and Hyundai Veloster N simply cannot keep up with the overall versatility of the 2023 Subaru WRX. Think it's the perfect fit? Call or stop by Brattleboro Subaru today and take a test drive or learn more. There's no better way to experience the 2023 Subaru WRX than from the driver's seat - we look forward to seeing you soon.
