The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Subaru WRX is no quicker than before, but beautifully balanced handling and spot-on steering are better than ever. Driving enthusiasts will find that the Ralliart and Evo deliver thrilling performance; but a drab interior and general lack of refinement limit the appeal of other models in the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer lineup.
