Subaru WRX STI comparison: 2015 sedan v 1999 two-door

Few cars have held as much prominence as the Subaru WRX did back in the 1990s. Tearing up roads and rally stages the world over with its turbocharged engine and all-wheel-drive traction, the WRX turned a humble family sedan into a cult icon that put the small Japanese manufacturer on the genuine performance car map...

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...

Old v New : 1994 v 2014 Subaru WRX, 1989 v 2014 Peugeot GTi, 1968 v 2014 Mini Cooper S

Comparing old with new might seem like an unfair comparison because, with few exceptions, new models are bigger, safer, more refined and more economical, often quicker, too. All of which might leave an earlier iteration without a hope. However, the flipside is that previous models are smaller and rawer, which are negatives if you’re talking about a Corolla, but can be desirable qualities in the rarefied realm of high-performance icons...

Sports car comparison : Subaru WRX v Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance v Renault Megane RS265

Rewind two decades and the Subaru WRX was the affordable performance king, its launch immaculately timed with the rise of Playstation rally games and the temporary demise of hot-hatches. By the end of the 1990s the Peugeot 306 GTi had died, while the Volkswagen Golf GTI had become a softie. Not long into the new millenium, though, a hot-hatch reprise was led by a reborn Golf GTI, and the tables turned...

Subaru WRX v Subaru WRX STi : Comparison review

This may seem like an odd product comparison, but it’s an entirely relevant one for people in the market for a Subaru WRX or Subaru WRX STi. The WRX has become sportier, while the WRX STi has taken on an even harder performance edge...

2014 Subaru WRX Premium (AWD) Review

My first Subaru after years of Quattros and 4WDs, it's a fantastic everyday car with enough comfort for the daily commute, but more than ample 'fun factor' for the weekends. Short shifting and sharp transmission and nice clutch feel, although there has been a slight slip after only 9,000kms...

2014 Subaru WRX (AWD) Review

Subaru have finally answered the calling of all the rexy enthusiast and brought back the wrx from what made it such a hit over 10 years ago! After losing its way in the previous model I.e. pre 2010, it's come back with a bang and it's better than ever. And I've only owned the car for 2 weeks. One of the big changes in the new model was replacing the 2...

2014 Subaru WRX STI Review

  To put this review in perspective our current and recent car ownership is as follows: Megane RS265, EVO X MR SST and WRX Club Spec. We traded in the Megane RS265 for the new MY14/15 WRX STI and now have approximately 5000km on the clock...

2014 Subaru WRX STI Review

Context is everything. I researched extensively & procrastinated over the STi vs S3 vs A45 decision. Ultimately it came down to the logic of look at the cheapest one & see if you are happy with it. I'd read about the relatively "cheap" interior, but I was hopping out of a 10yr old Monaro. In that context the interior of the STi was a nice place to be, especially in the Premium format...
