2019 WRX vs 370Z: Performance Specs

Let's get this out of the way first: We know you're most interested in all that power under the hood. With the turbocharged flat-four engine in the WRX or the V6 in the 370Z, you'll experience what well over 300 horsepower can do-and an incredibly thrilling ride.

However, if you're looking for exceptional balance and grip on wet roads along the Carolina coast, you'll like the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) in the WRX. With its optimal weight distribution and low center of gravity, it improves handling and traction all at once.

The 370Z, meanwhile, only runs on rear-wheel drive (RWD). With this setup, your ride will have much less balance and lack the tractive power of the Subaru car.

Your Cabin Comfort: Interior Features

If you're planning on accommodating passengers, you'll be hard-pressed to find space in the Nissan 370Z. It's a two-seater and can only fit one passenger, aside from the driver. As a compact car, the Subaru WRX has more space to work with, with room for five people and plenty of legroom (35.4 inches) in the back.

You'll also have quite a bit more cargo space to work with in the WRX-almost double, in fact. The 370Z offers just 6.9 cubic feet of cargo volume, and the sloping rear hatch makes it hard to fit much more than a few grocery bags inside. By contrast, the WRX expands the possibilities with 12 cubic feet.

The Technology to Keep You Connected

For those hot South Carolina summers, you'll like that the 2019 WRX and 370Z offer standard single-zone automatic climate control, so you can keep the cabin temperature to your liking, no mater how hot it gets outside.

As far as infotainment, the Subaru STARLINK™ and NissanConnect® systems offer several similar features, such as Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and a USB port to keep your phone fully charged.

However, the Subaru system offers a longer list of features, such as standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. With these apps, which aren't even available in the Nissan system, you can pair your smartphone with the car's touchscreen and send texts, manage your music library, and more from behind the wheel.
