Choosing Between the STI and Evo MR
If you’re looking for a high-performance, technology-packed, AWD, fun-to-drive-as-a-$90k-sports-car compact, for less than forty grand, and you do not care about looking like you watched Fast and Furious one too many times, then your choices are really limited to the Subaru Impreza WRX and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, at least here in the good old United States. Both offer more rear wing per dollar than any other car on the road, and choosing between them is tough. While the Evolution MR offers the high tech dual clutch transmission (it sounds awesome), I rather enjoyed the close-ratio manual shifting on the WRX STI. The WRX STI feels raw despite all the technology on board. That’s kind of nice for a change with today’s super technology-laden cars.
