    That is a weapon at 50k. Very impressive. I agree that the old one still has visual advantage over that though.

    $56K drive away with none of the 2 options added. Add $2.5K for wheels/tyre pack and $600 if you don’t want white. Doubt they would be open to deals.

    ^ I'd be really surprised if the RS didn't totally stomp all over that STI in absolutely every way except the 0-100 number.
    I also suspect the RS would then stomp the STI the 2nd time you tried the 0-100 within 15 minutes or so ...
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    $80k in 1999 was a lot of money. $50k in 2015/16 is crazy cheap for a performance car that isn't shit.

    WTF is Stall Recovery?
    There's no denying it is heavy. Golf R 1415kg. BMW M135i 1430kg

    If it were a Lexus hot hatch people would be jumping up and down about the weight.

    I'll be howled down but I'll say it anyway. It's 250kg over weight.

    Rest of the specs look solid.

    1575kg - 250kg = 1325kg


    That's significantly lighter than a Megane RS265 which isn't equipped with 4wd. I too would like to see it shed a few kilos but 250kg is probably unrealistic even at AMG A45 pricing, at $50k I dare say it isn't possible.

    Since there's no Orange, I'd have to take Magnetic with white wheels.

    Thumbs up.

    But, it's not really a hot hatch though. Anything over 1200kgs and 200hp should be called Super Hatches or something.

    still, 1575kg is fucking heavy. But then it's a hatchback in shape only though i guess. looks like a weapon
