You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Going for the Premium adds a big spoiler on the trunklid of sedan models, as well as front fog lights, a power sunroof and a Cold Weather Package that bundles heated front seats, heated outside mirrors and a windshield de-icer. Finally, the Limited model adds HID headlamps and leather upholstery.

The STI is a higher-performance subgroup of the WRX line, and incorporates even more blistering performance and handling characteristics. It gets a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that's been turbocharged to produce 305 horsepower. The only transmission available is a six-speed manual with power being sent through all four wheels with the all-wheel drive system. The STI comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, power windows, mirrors and locks with remote keyless entry, front and rear limited slip differentials, lowered sports suspension, HID headlamps, Alcantara upholstered sport seats and a six-speaker audio system with USB input and Bluetooth. The STI is also available as a hatchback. The STI Limited adds a power sunroof, special BBS alloy wheels and leather upholstery.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution offers more advanced driver aids and a sequential shifting automated manual for those who don't want a traditional clutch pedal, but has a harsher ride and costs more when similarly equipped. The Volkswagen Golf R has a much nicer interior that is incorporated into a flexible three or five-door hatchback design and is more refined to drive, but isn't as quick or exciting as any WRX and cost a fair amount of money more. The Audi S4 is similarly quick with a six-cylinder engine but is much more expensive. The Ford Focus ST is spacious inside and comes available with an impressive array of technology not available on the WRX, but it's not as quick and its front-wheel drive configuration puts limits on handling abilities.

For people looking for a machine closely resembling an outrageous rally machine. The powerful engine with loads of turbo boost provides for a thrilling ride while the standard all-wheel drive puts that power onto the road. Few competitors can match its ability to give an exciting drive for a relatively low price, even if rivals are arguably more refined. For thrill seekers who want something with added practicality, the WRX and STI are worth a drive.
