2011 Subaru WRX Fuel Economy

6.0
On Fuel Economy
Fuel economy is a real disappointment in the 2011 Subaru WRX and STI—especially in a year when the V-6 Ford Mustang is rated above 30 mpg—and it's why these racy little cars just aren't that green. The EPA fuel economy rating for the WRX is 19 mpg city, 25 highway, with its sole five-speed manual gearbox, while the STI gets a 17/23 rating with its six-speed.

And based on several daily-driving experiences with both of these models, you'll be hard pressed to hit 25 mpg on a highway cruise in either the WRX or the STI, while around-town figures will stay in the teens.
