Reason I got the Legacy, STi stands out way too much and cost too much to insure. Until all the radical redesigns, the Legacy was a perfect blend of speed and luxury. 18 mpg city no mater how I drive the car and 26 mpg turnpike so long as I watch the boost gauge.HAHA...Congrats!!!...your moving to the car I moved out of. I left my 2011 GSR for a 2012 LTZ Cruze. The Evo was tons of fun, but I was tired of the unwanted attention from the police. The profiling police do, will pull you over for anything, drive perfectly. Also gas was atrocious, and I was doing too much traveling with the job. It has amazing handling and its fun to burn all the ricey imports around. I especially enjoyed it in the rain as you have a sense of confidence that is unparalleled. Also, first thing to do is check out the speedometer, LOL, 0-40 is like only a inch worth of space on it. Its so weird when you have to confine yourself on average to such a small part of the overall speed. It was my dream to own one and I finally was able to, but it was too hard to truly enjoy. Amazing car and have a blast!!!!!
Personally, I would have gone for a Genesis Coupe, if I'm going to pay for a faster car that is more expensive and uses more gas, I might aswell do it with MORE style, not only the 3.8 Track has 57 more hp, but I think it also has a better mpg than the Evo, and I'm pretty sure it won't call the attention of the cops. Also 6 speed manual sport transmission and 8 speed auto for super smooth city rides? Yes please.Yeah it costs more and gets worse mileage but guys, Racecar.
