VW Jetta vs Subaru Impreza: Performance

Leading the way in the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is a 1.4-L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that boasts the perfect balance between power and efficiency. This powertrain works with a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an available 8-speed automatic transmission with TiptronicÒ and Sport Mode.

Whichever transmission you go with, though, you'll enjoy a peppy 184 lb-ft of torque as well as an efficient EPA-estimated 30 city / 40 highway MPG.1

As for the 2019 Subaru Impreza, you'll have a 2.0-L Subaru BOXERÒ 4-cylinder engine. While this engine is a bit bigger, it falls behind in terms of power and efficiency. This engine makes only 145 lb-ft of torque and achieves an EPA-estimated 28 city / 38 highway MPG.

VW Jetta vs Subaru Impreza: Interior Space

Inside both the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2019 Subaru Impreza, you'll find five seats. However, the amount of space each passenger will have will vary a bit. For instance, the VW Jetta offers backseat passengers 37.4 spacious inches of legroom while the Impreza offers just 36.5 inches of legroom, which may make the back seat cramped for taller passengers.

Additionally, the VW Jetta offers significantly more space for cargo in the trunk. With 14.1 total cubic feet of cargo space, you'll be able to fit in all your things without having to give up a seat, which you might have to do in the Impreza. This model, on the other hand, offers just 12.3 total cubic feet of space in the trunk.

VW Jetta vs Subaru Impreza: Advanced Tech

The inside of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta isn't just spacious and comfortable, it's also tech-savvy. The VW Jetta offers an 8-inch touchscreen navigation system that can get you where you need to go while also offering hands-free phone calling, smartphone app integration, and a drive mode selection.

As for the 2019 Subaru Impreza, you'll have access to an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. But you'll miss out on several features including drive mode selection and a smart virtual cockpit.
