After having a 2003 RSX-S for 7 yr and needing a 4-dr car that would fit the growing needs of my family, and still be fun to drive, I shopped the WRX vs. an Audi A4 and BMW 3-series......never owned a Subaru before although was aware of its prowess as a 'driver's car..' the Audi was kind of a 'dog' to drive, although has a great interior and looks sharp...the BMW IS a BMW, but was very expensive and had a very drab interior, and relatively poor MPG for only 230 hp...after driving all 3 and contemplating the initial and long term costs, I could not justify that the Audi and BMW were $5k - $7k better than the WRX Limited with leather, moonroof, HID lamps, Bluetooth, etc. ...I drove it home from the dealer on a rainy day and it performed beautifully! Acceleration is addictive, and I am not even past the 1,000 mile break-in period yet so have not used the turbo much..ride is very compliant, it brakes great, and exhaust lets out a good 'grrr' as well...I've been averaging close to 22 mpg with in-town driving, which is decent..acceleration is leisurely under 2,000 rpm, but above that it winds up nicely and pushes you back in your seat...short-throw shifter is a little cumbersome at first, but you get used to it, and it seems as if it works better at speed vs. around town..
seats are very comfortable and there's a good seating position..all controls are very simple to operate, although I initially struggled with the Bluetooth...backseat accommodates larger people and offers nice seating position..
however, the hatch does not fit a large stroller, meaning that you have to fold down one of the seatbacks to accommodate it...this can be a nuisance...however, the hatchback does accommodate a bunch of stuff ...
I'm looking forward to taking it on a freeway trip to let it stretch its legs a little...
that said, great value, performance, and practicality for the money vs. anything out there at its price point..Subaru has done a great job continually refining and improving the car...still has a couple rattles here and there, but overall a solid value and super fun-to-drive!...read morehide
