True stand-out car

ReviewThe 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.
Best Features3rd 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.
Worst FeaturesShorter 1st gear with 6 gears total. More unique profile- less neon, shadow, lancer like and more 325, TT like.
