Should I buy a Subaru WRX or BRZ for performance? 

With not one but two affordable performance cars available, the 2020 Subaru model lineup is waiting for you at Pfaff Subaru in Guelph, ON. But how do you choose between the sporty, nimble 2020 Subaru BRZ sports coupe and the all-wheel-drive 2020 Subaru WRX rally sedan? It helps to know exactly what sets both models apart. Since they’re both built with Subaru dependability, and they both are priced reasonably, they’ve got a lot in common. But once you get behind the wheel, you’ll see that each one offers a unique driving experience. If you are wondering if you should buy a Subaru WRX or BRZ for performance, then you have come to the right place for answers. In this blog, we share some information about which Subaru could be right for you. 

Size and Design 

When you want a sport-tuned, rally-inspired sedan that’s comfortable as a daily driver too, the 2020 Subaru WRX might just be the car for you. With 35.4″ of second-row legroom and 12 cubic feet of trunk volume, the 2020 Subaru WRX can comfortably carry up to five adults as well as a few armloads of groceries. By contrast, the 2020 Subaru BRZ gives you 29.9″ of rear-seat legroom and 6.9 cubic feet of trunk space. Thanks to its smaller footprint, the Subaru BRZ provides nimble handling and a classic sports coupe look, but for daily driving duties, the 2020 Subaru WRX is a bit more versatile. But no matter which sporty Subaru you select, they both offer sophisticated smartphone technology. Subaru STARLINK™ infotainment comes standard, including Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for fast and easy smartphone integration.

Performance 

With the classic rear-wheel-drive architecture and 205 standard horsepower, the 2020 Subaru BRZ surges ahead when you put your foot down. But the Subaru BRZ was built for nimble handling and a feeling of precision and control, too. That’s why it comes standard with a sport-tuned suspension, quick-ratio steering, and the low center of gravity provided by the BOXER® engine design. Meanwhile, the 2020 Subaru WRX features standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. As road conditions change, the Subaru WRX is constantly delivering power to the wheels with the most grip for smooth acceleration and confident, controlled handling. Its standard turbocharged engine cranks out 268 horsepower. Also available is the souped-up Subaru WRX STI which gets an even bigger engine laying down 310 horsepower. To experience the subtle differences in performance between both models, head to Pfaff Subaru in Guelph, ON, for a test drive!
