GREEN | 6 out of 10
19 mpg city, 25 highway for the WRX (5-speed manual); 17/23 for the STI (6-speed manual)
numbers that continue to disappoint in this day and age
The 2013 Subaru WRX and STI have no shortage of performance, but they do disappoint with respect to gas mileage.
The WRX's EPA ratings of 19/25 mpg city highway, for a combined rating of 21 mpg, aren't very impressive compared to newer models like the 2013 Ford Focus ST (32 mpg highway); admittedly, the Focus ST doesn't include all-wheel drive. It only gets worse in the STI, with a 17/23 mpg from the EPA, for a combined 19 mpg--cause even for some enthusiast buyers to raise their eyebrows.
The 2013 Subaru WRX and STI might look small and economical, but they're not green at all.
