Sti or Evo?

If you were going to buy one whitch would you choose? I think i would have to go with the STi. I dont like the Evo's interior but they are both great cars in my mind

I agree that they're both great cars, but I'd take the Evo...From what I've seen, Scoobies handle better off road, but on the street, the Evo is faster. Not that I'd really be able to push either car to its limits lol.

the Evo is only .1 sec faster to 60 and like.7 or .8 in the quater. I like the STi because it looks more agressive. TESTOSTERONE!!

Yeah, but if you haven't noticed, they weren't designed only for straight lines lol...

According to Top Gear, the Stig's lap time with the STi was 1:30.1. The Evo VIII was 1:28.9...It might not sound like much, but that difference puts the Impreza just ahead of a Golf R32, and the Lancer as fast as a Porsche 911 Carrera S, and a little slower than a Viper SRT-10

BTW .7 seconds over 15 seconds, give or take is a pretty vast difference.

Evo's faster around a track. If we're talking STI vs Evo MR, I'd take the Evo.

The new Evo is pretty hot and aggressive to me. I'd take that over any Sti. Not surprising since I'd take any Evo over any equally tasked Sti...the new one furthers the gap for me however.





The only thing that may bother me about this car is that is has been "rumored" to be a paddle-shift type transmission car only. Not many paddle-shifts get editor love. I've never driven a "true" paddle-shift equipped car, so I wouldn't know for sure.

I would take the Evo. I prefer the evo's look to the sti for some reason. I especially like the FQ 400.

I hear the evo X will be faster than the STI.


Something about the STI that I just noticed (please no, "obviously" comments)


Take off the wing, the hood scoop and the gold plated wheels, and it looks like just a simple-shaped Impreza.


The evo has the wing and hood scoop also, but it does not look exactly like a regular lancer at least. It's more distinct.

Realistically though, that shouldn't be an issue...
