For many fans, nothing comes close to a performance car like the WRX STI which has excellent levels of grip and a big turbocharged engine to deliver heaps of fun. This is the car that dominated the World Rally Championships for years and it comes with lots of equipment for the price. In addition, there's also lots of room on board for four tall adults.
With a 2.5 litre turbocharged petrol engine under the bonnet, the car is a great and responsive drive thanks to the power output of 300bhp. However, it's also not the cheapest performance car to run and owners will only get around 30mpg from it - though in reality that figure will be closer to 20mpg. In addition, the ride in the WRX STI is fairly stiff to help cope with a demanding drive at speed which means that bumpy roads and potholes will be felt in the cabin. On board, the interior is well laid out and the seats are comfortable and supportive which is useful for when the car is driven fast down winding country roads.
The WRX STI’s wheels grip the road effectively and there's very little in the way of body roll and overall the fun element for this performance car is high. The grip is noticeable when cornering at high speed and there's very little slipping, even in the wet. The car's cornering abilities are also helped by a torque vectoring system which supplies power to the wheel that needs it most. Drivers will find that the engine is responsive and it has a top speed of 159mph and it will reach 0 to 62 mph in five seconds. While the WRX STI should be seen as a performance car, it is also a practical choice too with plenty of space the cabin and a decent sized boot.
