2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI vs 2019 Subaru Impreza Limited
The new 2019 Subaru Impreza recently released. Seeing as Subaru is a top competitor and worthy foe to the Volkswagen brand, we thought a new comparison would be in order. While the standard 2019 Subaru Impreza sedan is a good pairing for the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, we’ll be looking at another match up. That would be the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI vs the 2019 Subaru Impreza Limited 5-door hatchback.
The 2019 Subaru Impreza Limited hatchback changes the sedan build to a wagon hatchback and includes many upgraded and sporty features, putting it more in line with the sporty Golf GTI rather than the standard Golf hatch. So, let’s get started with our comparison of these VW and Subaru sporty and stylish cargo-focused models!

2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Poughkeepsie, NY
The 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI generously upgrades its power from the standard 2018 Volkswagen Golf. However, the 2019 Subaru Impreza Limited 5-door hatchback trim has the same power output as its baseline trim level. This would be fine if the 2019 Impreza Limited hatch was far cheaper than the 2018 VW Golf GTI, but its starting price is only a bit more affordable. That means the 2018 VW Golf GTI is easily the better use of your cash. Additionally, the 2018 VW Golf GTI doesn’t upgrade the Golf only on power, but features too, including:
- Driving Mode Selection
- Rear View Camera System
- DCC® Adaptive Chassis Control
- XDS+® Cross Differential System
- Volkswagen Car-Net® with App-Connect
- Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™
