2018 Subaru WRX STI VS 2018 Volkswagen Arteon Elegance
2018 Subaru WRX STI:
With its 268-hp, 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged BOXER engine, Symmetrical All Wheel Drive and Active Torque Vectoring, the rally-bred WRX is a performance and value benchmark in the high-performance AWD sport-compact segment. The WRX comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission and offers an optional performance automatic transmission, the Sport Lineartronic® CVT with manual mode. The WRX features new front and rear suspension tuning for improved steering stability and ride comfort, while retaining the car's high cornering performance capability. Subaru significantly enhanced shifter feel for the 6-speed manual transmission, with a new synchro design and reduced friction, along with smoother clutch take-up. The WRX electric power steering (EPS) was revised to provide an even smoother, more natural feel, while integrating the steering motor and electronic control unit reduces weight. A new optional Performance Package for the WRX Premium features Recaro 8-way power seats, red-painted brake calipers and upgraded JURID brake pads, and deletes the moonroof to reduce weight. The standard 18-inch wheels feature a bold new double-spoke design. WRX STI for 2018: A comprehensive handling enhancement for the 2018 STI includes the revised suspension tuning as featured on the WRX, plus a revised DCCD AWD system, significantly upgraded brakes and this model's first-ever 19-inch wheels. The DCCD system, which previously used a combination of mechanical and electronic center limited slip differential control, now uses electronic control for quicker and smoother response. The 19-inch alloy wheels feature a striking Y-shaped spoke design and carry 245/35R19 tires that help raise cornering performance while giving the STI an even more aggressive stance.
2018 Volkswagen Arteon:
Six turbocharged engines: The Arteon will initially feature three turbo direct injection engines at launch: a 206 kW / 280 PS TSI (petrol) engine and two TDI (diesel) engines with 110 kW / 150 PS and 176 kW / 240 PS. Three additional engines will complete the range: the newly designed 1.5 TSI Evo (110 kW / 150 PS with cylinder deactivation) as well a TSI and a TDI engine, each with 140 kW / 190 PS. Dual clutch gearbox for all versions: All engines can be combined with an automated DSG dual clutch gearbox (except 110 kW TSI in Germany, which is only available with a manual gearbox). For the TSI, the DSG gearbox is standard on engines with an output of 140 kW and above; for the TDI it is standard on the 176 kW version. Additionally, the 280 PS TSI and 240 PS TDI also have the Volkswagen 4MOTION all-wheel drive as standard, while this is available as an option for the 140 kW TDI. All other models have front-wheel drive.Assistance systems look ahead: The Arteon's innovative driver assistance systems match its avant-garde concept. Three of its all-new technologies illustrate this. The latest generation of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) now takes into account parameters such as speed limits, bends, roundabouts and detours, and automatically adjusts driving speed accordingly (within system limits and in accordance with country-specific regulations). Thanks to the navigation system's GPS and road data, the new dynamic cornering lights with predictive control also anticipate when a bend is approaching and illuminate it before the driver actively turns into the bend. The second generation of Emergency Assist offers more safety in a worst-case scenario: if the driver becomes incapacitated for health reasons, the system not only slows the Volkswagen Arteon down within system limits but now also steers it into the slow lane, traffic behind permitting...
