The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX is a niche model that won't appeal to everyone; it's extremely entertaining, remarkably comfortable, and very safe, but might disappoint those who value refinement and frugality for the daily grind. Mitsubishi refers to the 2009 Lancer not as an economy car but as a "compact sport sedan," and its appearance and equipment—especially for the top GTS model—support this designation.
