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...

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.

2009 Subaru Impreza WRX First Steer

2009 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan First Steer Subaru says it’s sharpened the claws of its iconic ‘Rex’ with the launch of the MY2009 Impreza WRX sedan, and while the figures are certainly impressive, does it have the bite to take on its newly created rival the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart? -David Twomey The full assessment of that question will have to wait until we can fully test the two cars back-to-back but the initial impressions are that while the latest WRX, at least in sedan form because that’s all we’ve driven, has a sharper feel and is certainly quicker than the MY2008 model it just doesn’t seem to have the sharp edge of the Lancer Ralliart...
