2.5 out of 5: Obviously subjective, but to me it doesn't do anything for me emotionally, either good or bad.
2 out of 5: Obviously subjective, but to me it doesn't do anything for me emotionally, either good or bad. Compared to the competition it is lacking. Materials are just fine.
3 out of 5: Lots of power for the price and displacement, but turbo power is still peaky/laggy. Power delivery is a bit unrefined. Manual transmission is not stellar, combined with turbo lag, it can be a bit rough in low speed every day driving. Clutch take up/catch point is bit soft.
3 out of 5: I average about 24 MPG in 50/50 mixed city/hwy. About 18 MPG in stricly city. About 28 MPG in strictly hwy. Have even seen 30-32 MPG if just cruising at hwy speeds of 65-75 MPH.
4 out of 5: This is where the WRX shines. This is the biggest kudos for the car. It handles like a more expensive sports car. The AWD and chasis, combine to give great cornerning, minimal understeer, and ability to power out of mid-corner.
