2019 Volkswagen Golf R vs. 2019 Subaru WRX

2019 Volkswagen Golf R vs. 2019 Subaru WRX

Reinvigorate your daily drive with the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R. This sleek hot hatch packs a punch and delivers a dynamic driving experience that will impress. Volkswagen's 2019 Golf R is just as comfortable on twisty country roads as it is exploring narrow city streets thanks to its powerful 288-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. This, in addition to the Golf R’s finely-tuned suspension and steering, gives the Golf R its spirited personality.

But how does this hot hatch compete with the likes of the 2019 Subaru WRX? Where the Subaru WRX shines is its quick acceleration, responsive handling and strong traction and performance thanks to its full-time all-wheel drive. When compared to the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R, the 2019 Subaru WRX struggles to compete in terms of fuel-efficiency, acceleration speed and warranty protection.
