The Review

This mad crazy little hatchback is not your typical hatchback like a volkswagen or a renault. It's raw as hell, trust me get into one and your legs would be numb after one single pull from that monster engine.Tone down version of a rally car, amazing car for road daily, comfortable and extremely easy to drive with HARDCORE performance make you want to trash it every single day with that turbo, with gear shift settings rpm LED LIGHT, unbelievable car with interior not like the cheap 07 before sedan where all sorts of noise come in, not this, unbelievable interior with ecu si drive mode, no more low fuel consumption due to unable to tweak with the ecu like the old version of subaru impreza before 07. If you are enthusiast and you have 80k to spend in your bank account, here it is. Everything feel solid and well made even the clutch and gas pedal is sensitive and overly responsive. That turbo spooling is beyond joy but endlessly happy. A subaru sti will change you, this powerful beast beg you to go faster and push it to the limit if you allow and your heart can take it. With 6speed ratio with mix of close to wide ratio, top speed of 280km/h with mods is achievable. Looking into performance mods, this car can easily take on 600hp with stock gearbox. Unlike the wrx, this is hardcore and the power will rip off your expectation from excitement to fear of your life & safety if you reach that extreme level. Not for the faint hearted. Trust me.The stock power is way enough and too much for sg road.

Strengths

This is the closest thing to a rally car built by Godly subaru,Reliable and amazingly quick, Hard cornering no problem, short steering ratio, stable super stiff solid car felt like can take up to 300km/h easy, meant for high speed car, 6speed manual rarely use at all due to sg speed limit, daily street ecu control via si drive, pretty much everything, comfortable seat, good seating position, steering wheel adjustable, gearbox amazing with short throw super tight shift, once you got into a car this fast meant for rally you got to enjoy. A smile on your face every single time you get in, you know that it's a wild beast.

Weaknesses

Will get into accident with lousy driver skills and temptation to step to feel the pull of that 2.5 flat boxer 305bhp with 290pound ft of torque after 4000rpm, all hell break loose. Prepare for launch to outer space. The downfall is the price and it's not cheap.
