2015 Subaru WRX vs. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid than the Subaru WRX, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, the Subaru WRX may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Subaru 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). The Subaru WRX is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. 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 WRX and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.
