Subaru WRX STI Old v New Comparison: 2015 sedan v 1999 two-door

Few cars have held as much prominence as the Subaru WRX did back in the 1990s.

Sports car comparison : Subaru WRX STI v Audi S3 v Volkswagen Golf R

The new Subaru WRX STI has a lot to live up to, especially now that we know the garden variety WRX is a significantly better car than the old model in every way. The early signs are good, because the STI in Premium guise, as tested here, immediately ramps up the bang-for-your-buck factor. At $54,990 (or $49,990 if you forgo luxury kit), it’s a massive $10,000 cheaper than the model it replaces...

2015 Subaru WRX Premium (AWD) Review

Late last year when I was looking for a new car I had just came out of a Passat TDi130 Highline wagon. I was initially looking at an Outback but decided we didn't really need two large cars (we had a territory as well which we have just traded on a new GXL Prado). When I was at the dealership I decided to test drive the newly released MY16 WRX...

This car is a fantastic value for money performance car. After owning for 12 months this car has never given me any problems.
