2.5 RS vs RSX vs Lancer Ralliart

Which car would you rate the highest: Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS, Acura RSX, or Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. I am asking for pure opinion.

The Acura...being a Honda product.

But what do I know about the Asian scene...

I'd go with the Acura too, just out of pure oppinion and I love Integras, the RSX is pretty sweet, I love the IVtec motors. I'd say out of pure performance the suburu is probably the best though.

Wouldn't this thread have been better if it had a poll with it and isn't the RSX only FWD?

Yes.

Your signature picture annoys me. It looks like he stuck his head in sugar and it makes me laugh everytime I see it. But, he will still get my vote.

The Lancer Ralliart is only FWD as well...and a whopping 162 hp...I don't like DSM, though...I had an 02 RSX-S and it was great--coulda had more torque, though.....

Evo? FWD only? where do you live? Where i come from the evo is not advertised in anything BUT 4WD versions... Also here they come in 350+bhp options right out of the factory.. 0-60 in 3.7 secs. The subaru however comes in a 305 bhp version and that does 0-60 in 4.8... The subaru experiences greater understeer, has far less torsional strenght in it's chassis and was nearly 5 seconds slower round a track when timed with a PROFESSIONAL race driver at the wheel of both cars. Both had 300 bhp and were in standard trim throughout.. Evo 1 : Subaru 0. And as for the RSX i can't say i know anything about it..

I think in the US and various other countries the Ralliart is ofered with FWD and a 1.6 engine in some cases lol

Yeah, here in America it is a POS with FWD and 1.6 litres of raw power. The EVO VIII here has 276 from the factory and the STi has 300 (from a 2.5 litre, though) and the STi has beaten it in many categories--however I would pick the STi just beacuse i don't like DSM....

and the RSX in england is still called the integra....wish I could have a new type r......sigh
