2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback Interior Features

2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback vs 2019 Volkswagen Golf: Interior

Even we were surprised to see how much more affordable the new 2019 Subaru Impreza hatchback is over the 2019 Volkswagen Golf. The difference in price seems to suggest that you'll get a lot more in the VW Golf, but a look at the facts shows otherwise. For instance, up to 100.9 cubic feet of passenger space awaits up to five occupants in the new Subaru Impreza hatchback while the Volkswagen Golf expects everyone to fit in just 93.5 cubic feet of space.

Improved cargo space is one of the main reasons to get a new small hatchback car, and the 2019 Subaru Impreza hatchback delivers with up to 20.8 cubic feet of space behind the backseat. The latest VW Golf comes in well under that with just 17.4 cubic feet behind the rear seat. That's about what you would expect in the trunk of many sedans.

2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback Performance

2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback vs 2019 Volkswagen Golf: Performance

The folks over at the Volkswagen dealer may want to tell you how their VW Golf is known as the defining hot hatch. We beg to differ and present the 2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback as evidence. Perhaps most importantly, every Subaru Impreza Hatchback comes standard with the renowned traction of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. That's a lot better for slick Columbus, OH roads than a front-wheel drive VW Golf.

You'll also find more power from the flat BOXER® engine under the hood of the new Subaru Impreza hatchback. While the VW Golf is more expensive, it starts out with a manual transmission, and you'll have to upgrade to a higher trim level if you'd like an automatic. The new Subaru Impreza Hatchback gives you the option of a manual or automatic transmission at the start of the lineup. What's more, steering wheel paddle shifters are available in the new Subaru Impreza Hatchback, but not the Volkswagen Golf.


2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback Safety

2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback vs 2019 Volkswagen Golf: Safety

Safety is especially important on today's hectic roads, particularly when you're looking at getting a new small hatchback car. The new Subaru Impreza Hatchback has once again proven its leading safety with the highest possible scores across the board from independent private and public industry experts. The 2019 Volkswagen Golf fell well short of these marks in areas of frontal crash testing, rollover safety, and crash prevention technology.


2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback Driver Assist Features

2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback vs 2019 Volkswagen Golf: Driver Assist Technology

The new 2019 Subaru Impreza Hatchback and the VW Golf are both available with today's advanced driver assistance technology that includes pre-collision braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and more. However, when we looked at the ratings these features earned from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), we found that the new Subaru Impreza scored much higher.

Additionally, other driver assistance features like reverse automatic braking and active torque vectoring are available on the new Subaru Impreza Hatchback, but not on the Volkswagen Golf.

Discover Why Subaru is Among the Fastest-Growing Names in the Industry

Did you know that Subaru was the first in the nation to establish a zero-landfill automotive manufacturing plant? That means that tossing a gum wrapper in the trash is sending more garbage to a landfill than the Subaru manufacturing plant in Indiana. That's just the beginning of how Subaru does things differently.

Their famed BOXER® engines continue to provide better and safer driving dynamics with less fuel and more power while the renowned traction of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continues to lead the industry. Further safety from the advanced EyeSight® driver assist system is now becoming standard on more Subaru models, and all this is just a preview of the unparalleled value that comes with a Subaru.
