Darts like a hummingbird; easy to drive at your limit (and nowhere near the STi’s). Superbly stable, terrific brakes, slick 6-speed. Simple dash, comfortable seats, useful trunk. Cool red intake on 300-hp flat-four.
Giant rear wing distracting and magnet fro cops and boy racers. 3rd gear gate very narrow. Stereo lacks midrange. Thumpy suspension, intrusive road noise. Driver-controlled differential, intercooler spray invite enthusiastic throttle-pedal induced disaster.
Still the definitive 150mph pocket rocket – also good for shopping, unlike the EVO. Due for a redesign. Ugly grille does away in 2007. I’ll take the “wing delete.”
