      Why didn’t you compare the Golf R to the WRX, AWD vs AWD?

      There would be a different outcome.

      Funky_bottoms i think the golf r is comparable to the sti on the price range and performance.

      I love Subaru’s probably my favorite car but for a daily it’s the gti all the way. I’ve been deciding between both and yeah I’m probably passing on my dream car because the gti is so damn good in every aspect

      Yeah he gti is probably faster stock than the wrx but that’s because it’s light. I love both cars but the wrx looks way nicer and most probably will pick how the wrx looks over the gti. I’m deciding between both of these cars. It’s a hard choice and it would help if someone gives me tips/ things I should know

      The 3rd-gen VW EA888 turbo 2.0L engine according to APR's dyno is running 235 hp and 270 ft-lbs (both crankshaft ratings) with the stock car. VW under-rates the power. With a simple flash-only tune, APR (stage 1) brings that up to 305 hp and 371 ft-lb (crank).

      Lifted_Above Ik that’s crazy I want to get one for my first car but my dad said he’s not going to help me buy any German car🤦🏻‍♂️. I can got a 2016 for like 16k and mod it, I will have a lot of power with a premium build.

      Nice vid, thanks. Well, since I have an '18 WRX limited, I'll have to say WRX. However I know what you mean about the class factor and fit and finish of the VW. I think if I went that route I'd get an Audi though.

      S T for the price you get for this car is great compared to an Audi. Good all around with crazy power jumps just off a tune

      It feels faster because the turbos power stays the whole time till the red line

      These were my 2 cars I was shopping for, 2014 WRX Hatchback or 2016 GTI, and have I already experienced rides in WRX the 2014 Hatchback was the same problem, rattles, road noise, just did not like way interior is put together, and yes a flat four will handle much better than inline transverse mounted. you are correct about the steering wheel on GTI, how it kind of goes plastic with age. Like you have had GTI's in the past so bought 2016 GTI.

      I have never liked VW. Never ever. Idk why but I just don't like them. If you offered me 1 for free I wouldn't accept it. I own a 2019 WRX and I love it

      The GTI has better rear headroom and legroom, and the trunk on the WRX is pretty meh.

      I can't stop watching these comparison videos and I still cannot decide between going with a 2019 GTI or a 2019 WRX. I'm leaning towards the WRX for AWD (I live in Seattle and I feel the AWD would be more beneficial out here in the long run) but I have heard that for daily commuters the GTI is overall a better pick with its overall nicer interior and tech...along with better insulation from road noise. I'm torn.... I'm going with automatic transmission for the record (hate all you want but, I just never learned to drive manual)

      Yes Ive been deciding between these 2 cars as well but I’m going with the gti because honestly all around the wrx doesn’t even come close and this is coming from a subie fanboy

      Kira Z I have a mk5 gti and with winter tires it’s just as good as either of my parents cars which r both awd. Live in Pittsburgh btw. Plus yeah it’s got a nicer interior and better gas mileage and if u get a tune it’s faster than a wrx all while being waaaaay cheaper for insurance
