Expert Quotes:

19 mpg city, 25 highway for the WRX (5-speed manual); 17/23 for the STI (6-speed manual)
U.S. EPA

numbers that continue to disappoint in this day and age
Autoblog




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.

Conclusion

With mileage worse than many larger six-cylinder sport sedans, the 2011 Subaru WRX and STI just aren't very green.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
