This is a car for anybody who loves driving and wants some performance to go along with utility. At this price, I do not know of any other car that provides this kind of performance and handling with 4 doors and all-wheel drive. This car puts you in a special community too: other WRX drivers on the road ALWAYS smile and wave at me! How many other Japanese sedans have that kind of following?
Performance, handling, front and center tachometer, short throw shifter, sporty front seats, pretty decent 6 disc stereo system.
The hood scoop (although it does serve a purpose) is a little too much for me. I preferred the previous headlight style to this one. Fuel economy is terrible!....but that's not why I bought this car, and I know it's hard to combine economy and performance.
