The WRX’s build and design are a great
match for its price. The WRX steps up
a few generous notches in performance
and price from earlier models but is
money well spent. I felt it should have
had a shorter 1st gear with a
transmission spanning 6 gears but it’s
workable. Turbo lag is present but
after 3K RPM you feel a smooth but
quick rush of power. Compared to a V6
though, you’ll find the sub-3K RPM a
little sleepy. But the 2-liter engine
wakes up to very powerful acceleration.
The car grabs the road with a pointed
determination when the wheel is even
slightly turned. It’s an absolute blast
to feel the car respond instantaneously
to your every input.
3rd gear at 4K RPM. Knock-out handling
that begs to be pushed. Auto-tinting
rearview mirror with cars from last
greenlight in it. Super fun.
Shorter 1st gear with 6 gears total.
More unique profile- less neon, shadow,
lancer like and more 325, TT like.
