WRX Sedan shown
- $5,675 - $11,701
- No trim specified for this review
- Mind blowing acceleration, very comfortable, upscaleish interior
- a little bumpy, gas goes quickly.. have to wait 500 miles before I open her up!
So last weekend (weekend before xmas) I test drove a gunmetal EVO MR and then an aspen white STi. The EVO was fun but felt like a $13k lancer inside.. very ugly, old style dash. The speed was increadable but only above 4000rpm. Below that, it also felt like the normal lancer economy car.
Then to the subie dealership.... they wouldn't let me test drive the one on the showroom floor, so I drove a used one with 4000 miles on it.
I was completely blown away! It is so fast, and the whine of the turbo gets ya every time! But compared to the EVO, the inside was actualy quite nice! Very classy and the car is WAY more driveable at lower RPM's.
This cost $4000 less than the EVO MR. So I went home to have a hard think and came back the next day to drive that pretty white STI off the showroom floor! I've had it for 4 days ~ 230 miles on it now.
To the person who said his '02 Z28 can beat this, you're kidding yourself! I came from a '02 SS six speed and it doesn't touch the STi! It's almost a full second slower to 60!
-And to the 16 year old with a mid-80's CRX who smoked his friends STi...... common kid. Don't embarass yourself like that ;)
I don't care if the EVO can handle 500 WHP and whooop the STi at those settings... The STi is plenty fast for me and since I have 2 kids under 5 this is my perfect car!
Great job subbie!
