The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer models looks sharp and handles well--and the Ralliart and Evo provide all-wheel-drive performance thrills--but there are enough flaws to limit their appeal. The 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX and STI are fun to drive, tractable in a wide range of conditions, and surprisingly comfortable and versatile; but the lack of an automatic transmission and poor fuel economy are factors that might limit their appeal.
