The Subaru Impreza vs The Volkswagen Jetta:

The new Subaru Impreza stands out among its top competitors in a variety of important ways, especially over its top midsize sedan competitor from Volkswagen, the new Volkswagen Jetta. Here at Jim Keras Subaru, we want you to go about financing and leasing a new Impreza with absolute confidence, so let us see how this new midsize sedan fares against its worthy challenger from Volkswagen. You will find the new Subaru Impreza conveniently located in our new Impreza inventory at Jim Keras Subaru at 2110 Covington Pike.


The Subaru Impreza provides a few available features to enhance your comfort and convenience, especially when driving through West Memphis in the wintertime. A windshield wiper de-icer comes available on most trims, as does a roof rack. Only a select few brands offer a de-icer feature, but it remains unavailable on the Volkswagen Jetta, much like the available roof rack.


If you enjoy really standing out in the streets of Germantown, you might enjoy the standard engine of the Impreza, which generates 152 total horsepower, whereas, the standard four-cylinder engine for the Jetta falls short, generating 147 total horsepower. The Subaru Impreza also includes Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as a standard feature for all of its models, which very few other brands offer on their sedans or hatchbacks. As of recently, you will not find all-wheel drive available on the Volkswagen Jetta.

 Safety Features

Along with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, all trim levels of the Subaru Impreza (sedan and hatchback) offer EyeSight® Driver-Assist Features which include Lane Departure Warning with Sway Alert, Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Volkswagen offers similar driver-assist features to these, but you must upgrade to higher trim levels of the Jetta and pay extra fees, before you may enjoy their driver-assist technologies.
