I think the author of the article has some valid points but he spends way too much time on the negative and not nearly enough on the positive. As others have pointed out the original design goals of...

If you are looking for more power right out of the gate, along with good handling I would go STI, Focus RS, or Golf R. Also consider Mustang GT w/performance pack or a Camaro SS.

FWD cars are getting better though. There is little to no torque steer in a stock GTI w/performance pack. Same with Fiesta ST. Not saying FWD is better or not better, but it is not terrible either...

Yes...

In all seriousness, I think it still looks good, I am just not sure it looks better than the previous gen. I do like the new wheels though.

Chevy, VW, Honda, are just several companies in recent years who have reduced weight in their cars while adding more tech (and usually increasing power).

They don't need to throw a bunch of different drivetrains at the car. They just need to give the car the bump in power (mostly torque) that it always deserved. If Ford, VW, GM, etc can make...

I know why they gave it the tires they gave it originally, and I know why they wanted to not give the car too much hp. They should, at a minimum, give people tire choices.

I like some of the changes, like the wheels and revised interior. Not feeling the front of the car at all and the power bump is a joke (especially since there is most likely a weight increase). I...

What do you mean by too small? Not enough backseat room or you just want a bigger car from an exterior dimension perspective? The Camaro's backseat looks as tight or tighter than the BRZ.

But he does have a point to a degree. A base Subaru STI brand new in 2005 was $32,030. A base STI in 2015 is $35,290. If you were to use an inflation calculator the 2015 STI should be $40,224.

Yeah not sure either, there are far more WRX/STI's being modded than FT86's because there are way more on the road. The tuner/mod aftermarket for the WRX/STI is massive.
