Size and Design: 2018 Volkswagen Jetta VS 2018 Subaru Impreza
Price-point isn't the only similarity between these two cars: With less than two inches separating them in overall length, width and height, these vehicles are virtually the exact same size — yet you (somehow!) get more rear legroom and a way bigger trunk in the 2018 Jetta thanks to the talented engineers at Volkswagen. They've also provided extra features both inside and out like standard LED running lights and speed-sensitive volume that adjusts the volume of the stereo to match road noise levels — neither of which you'll find on the base 2018 Subaru Impreza.
Performance and Efficiency: 2018 Volkswagen Jetta VS 2018 Subaru Impreza
Whether you demand top-of-the-line fuel economy or covet the speed and performance of a sport-tuned sedan, you'll find what you're looking for inside the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta. Where the 2018 Subaru Impreza offers two body styles and eight different trim levels with just one engine between them, you have three engines to choose from in the 2018 Jetta — all turbocharged. You can choose the 1.4L base engine for its 40 highway MPG capability, the bigger 1.8L version for 170 horsepower, or step up to the 2018 VW Jetta GLI and get a premium trim package both inside and out, plus a 2.0L powerhouse which makes up to 210 horsepower. Either way, you're getting more fuel economy and a lively driving feel from the turbocharged engine. On the other hand, the only engine choice for the 2018 Subaru Impreza is naturally-aspirated.

Both the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2018 Subaru Impreza received a perfect 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Unique to the 2018 VW Jetta, though, is Park Pilot, which provides audio cues and visual information in the dash for helping you squeeze into that tricky parking spot safely.
