2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Volkswagen Jetta: Design

When you're shopping for a compact sedan, you want something that's small outside but spacious inside. The 2018 Subaru Impreza and the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta are practically identical in their exterior dimensions, so it stands to reason that they'd be similar on the inside, as well. However, this simply isn't the case. The passenger volume of the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta is only 94.1 cubic feet, while the passenger volume of the 2018 Subaru Impreza is 99.8 cubic feet! This means that the Impreza will also give you more front and rear headroom and shoulder room, as well as greater front leg room, making your driving experience much more comfortable.

2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Volkswagen Jetta: Performance

When it comes to power, the 2018 Subaru Impreza and the 2018 VW Jetta are impressively similar. However, the Impreza has many advantages that the Jetta lacks. Here in the Pacific Northwest, all-wheel drive can be a powerful ally--and every new 2018 Subaru Impreza is equipped with the acclaimed Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The 2018 VW Jetta, on the other hand, only comes with two-wheel drive. Add in the powerful, horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER® engine that comes with the 2018 Subaru Impreza and you'll see that it's the perfect choice for our beautiful state.

2018 Subaru Impreza vs 2018 Volkswagen Jetta: Safety

For years, Subaru has been working ceaselessly to bring you the safest vehicles possible--and it shows! The 2018 Subaru Impreza is the recipient of the Top Safety Pick+ safety award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This honor was awarded to only fifteen vehicles this year, and the 2018 Impreza is proud to be one of them! The 2018 VW Jetta, on the other hand, received no IIHS awards whatsoever--not even the regular Top Safety Pick award. In IIHS testing, the Jetta fell behind the Impreza in passenger-side crashworthiness tests, front crash prevention tests, headlight tests, and LATCH ease of use tests. It's clear that the 2018 Subaru Impreza is the right choice for you and your family.
