The 2019 Subaru WRX and WRX STI trade eye-catching design for breathtaking performance on a variety of road surfaces.

Pros
Strong performance...
… in just about any conditions
Impressive safety record
Good infotainment system
Subtle design

Cons
Perhaps too subtle looking
A hatchback would be nice
Dated interior feel
Rivals offer more power for money

Come rain or shine — or even snow — the 2019 Subaru WRX and WRX STI deliver speedy acceleration and engaging handling. These compact sport sedans aren't as quiet or refined as their competitors, but you won't find sport sedans with more power and all-wheel drive for less money.

Pros
In both the WRX and WRX STI, acceleration is swift and among best-in-class
Delivers superb handling and steering response on twisting roads
Full-time all-wheel drive enhances traction and performance
Offers several premium safety equipment options

Cons
Excessive wind and road noise
Interior quality lags behind competitors
STI's high-performance suspension makes for a rough ride

The 2018 Volkswagen Jetta places in the bottom third of the highly competitive compact car class. It has substantial attributes inside and out, but its interior materials aren't as refined as competitors', and reviewers were disappointed with the Jetta's competent but underwhelming performance.

Pros
Above-average fuel economy
Large trunk
Roomy cabin

Cons
Lower-rent cabin materials than rivals
Less nimble than some competitors

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Volkswagen Jetta is a competent, comfortable sedan, but it’s light on personality and feels a little old against fresh-faced rivals.

Pros
Roomy back seat
Comfortable ride
Strong turbo engines
Clean styling

Cons
Very conservative feel
Light on personality and fun
Best safety tech only on SEL
Pricey, especially loaded up
