The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
A lack of refinement and a poor interior will limit shoppers' interest in lower-trim Lancer models, but the Ralliart and Evolution cars both offer thrilling performance for any climate. The 2016 Subaru WRX and WRX STI lineup offers an all-wheel-drive rocket for just about any budget, and the latest updates help make these performance machines even more livable day to day.
