In terms of price these two models are not at all different. Their invoice price was set at the same level, therefore if you want to have one of these, you will have to pay $36,000. So if you judge just by price, you would be totally stuck here. Though, let’s go further and look at the cars’ engines. New Volkswagen got the 2.0-Liter Turbocharged 4-cylinder core with the power output of 256-horses. Though new Subaru is a little more advanced in this sense, as its engine is a 2.5-Liter Turbocharged 4-cylinder one with the power level of 306-hp. In terms of miles per gallon rate, new Volkswagen is therefore more economic, offering 2 mpg more than new Subary in all senses.
