Doesn't sound that way to me...Looks aside, I like the sound of that! The STI sounds like the winner in driver feedback and performance. In this review it is more the DRIVER's car compared to the Evo.
They also commented that the evo had better feedback.Both models are fantastic sports cars that offer incredible pace, traction and all-round ability. The Impreza boasts great handling, a characterful engine plus hatchback practicality. It’s more fun, but isn’t the leap we were hoping. On the other hand, the Evo X is a big step forward. It’s more expensive, but it’s a real quality product – and is still amazing to drive. The only fly in the ointment is the five-speed gearbox. Add Mitsubishi’s new SST semi-auto, and the Evo X takes the honours.
Clearly, they preferred the X overall...not sure how you guys are reading otherwise.
