The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX and STI may not appeal to everyone; a lack of refinement and poor fuel economy make these poor daily drivers. Despite this, both cars are extremely entertaining, very comfortable, and safe. 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.
