The WRX 6MT isnt the Spec.B and BM 2.5i 6MT it is THE 6MT. the Spec.B got 6 forward gears by SOA squeezing in an extra overdrive gear into the 5MT case. The 5MT is no slouch gearbox.

The look of the WRX is just so uninteresting I wish the lines were more angular and not so bubble like if that makes sense. The drivetrain is legit that FA20 DIT + 6MT will be a screamer and on the highway that 3.54 F/D will make for good fuel mileage figures.

From the sounds of it, Mitsubishi won't be making Evos either. Sounds like they're "Going Green" instead.

No, Mitsubishi is probably going to reinvent the Evo. The car isn't what it originally was. The Evo X is nothing more than a big ass Galant or Diamante with awd and more power.

Except that it's not using an FA series engine. It'll be the EJ25 series engine. Now the STI might use the FA20DIT, but if the MRT news is any indicator, we won't get that, but instead get another EJ25. While EU and Japan get the FA20DIT.

It kind of makes sense though. US market doesn't get hammered for higher displacement engines and might as well clear out some of the EJ25 stock in the US market, then move to the FA20DIT later on. Like 2016/2017.

last time subaru tried to redesign a vehicle without any inspiration from any other car maker we got the ugly Tribeca....



i don't give a damn if it looks like another car. It's still a Subaru, and I have faith in their production. Is it not as aggressive as we thought? Nope, but what mid-range price sports car is? You want more aggressive, expand your price range.

Do not want.

For all those who say it will grow on you. I haven't liked the looks of any Impreza since 2003. Anything 08+ is a heavy ugly turd.
