ReviewI'd been sentenced to the past few years to a Volvo sedan. I've two little kids, and somewhere I'd heard that Volvos were safe. But I'd been eyeing the WRX for a couple years now, and finally took the plunge a couple weeks ago. It is a revelation. The feel is near- european, much superior to the mazdas and nissans I tested, though still not as vault-like as the Volvo. The acceleration is as filling-shaking as you'd expect. More interesting is the handling. Throw it into a curve and torque it up, and there's not an ounce of slide or wobble. I don't get where people say the back seat is small. I cram my kids in there and they love it.
Best FeaturesCat-like handling, minimalist interior design, studied dorkiness in exterior design.
Worst FeaturesLeather. I did come across a silver '03 that a dealership had cusomized with black and silver leather interior. Maybe Al Davis had ordered it. As bad as it looked, it made me wish a decent factory leather job was available.
