2014 Subaru Impreza WRX vs. 2015 Audi A4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A4 than the Subaru Impreza WRX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Impreza WRX will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
With the Audi A4 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Impreza WRX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Subaru Impreza WRX is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi A4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru Impreza WRX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Audi A4.

Dimensions
The Subaru Impreza WRX is a little narrower than the Audi A4, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Subaru Impreza WRX is slightly shorter than the Audi A4, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Subaru Impreza WRX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi A4.

Handling
The Subaru Impreza WRX has a smaller turning radius than the Audi A4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru Impreza WRX is somewhat more powerful than the Audi A4.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Subaru Impreza WRX and the Audi A4. The Subaru Impreza WRX has less cargo capacity than the Audi A4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Subaru Impreza WRX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi A4.
