Overall:

Car runs great, turbo really picks up nicely has great power, the premium model had great features. The controls on the steering wheel are well placed great back up camera amazing moon roof and really spacious for a sedan. A little overpriced for the minimal features you get unless you really want to go all out with the more top of the line model but great car overall.

Overall:

This is a car not for the economy seeker, but for an enthusiast. It has very respectable performance, is built extremely well and retains its value unlike near all other sport sedans on the market. Plus its lines are just gorgeous ( to me, of course). Seats are meant for narrow hips so anyone above average wont be comfortable, and clutch pretty heavy so bring your NFL kicking leg for any stop and go traffic. Honda type R would probably be the closest competition in my mind, but AWD is the definite deal sealer in my mind, especially with ambitions to move north. This is a super car for its cost. Highly recommended

This car is loads of fun to drive. The handling, the acceleration are awesome. The infotainment system works for me. I like the interface of it. The limited comes with the Nav. System and the upgraded speakers, both of which I enjoy straight away.

I wish it had a push to start and maybe a smoother shifter on the manual models

I love driving my WRX in the winter and summer seasons. The rear seats make it easy to drive other passengers. The 6-speed transmission is very smooth and fun to drive.

2017 Subaru WRX Limited Review
Roman says:
While the WRX has always been a car I have adored throughout the years, its never appealed to me as a buyer. Its more expensive in every way to own than many of the cars competing against it directly. Its not as compromising as the Volkswagen GTI when it comes to combining a comfortable yet sporty suspension. And ever since they stopped selling the hatchback, the WRX is less practical than a GTI as well. I would still highly recommend this car should money not be a concern and you really need AWD, but otherwise the WRX makes less sense to me than the Focus ST or Volkswagen GTI.

Front Seats Ranked 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S 4-Door FWD better.
"The seats were more comfortable. Who doesnt love plaid seats?"
Value Ranked 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0T S 4-Door FWD better.
"While the features are pretty comparable, the presentation and overall fit and finish of the GTI is leagues ahead of the WRX. Sitting in the GTI feels like sitting in a more upscale car than the price tag would suggest. The WRX makes you very aware that the engineers focused purely on performance, and not necessarily on the thoughtfulness and design of the interior."
