Yes, my only complaint for what it is are the seats, solid $20k eco box. Glad you can still get a stick these days.

It weighs 3,100# before you slap an awd powertrain and an engine that makes >250hp into it.



I keep trying to get my brother to bolt on my extra 17x9s and bfg but he won’t go for it.

You're talking about something that doesn't exist. Especially in the States. Even the Veloster N is 3100lbs. I wish we could have something small and potent like the Yaris, but that's not what the United States of Fatties and SUVs likes sadly.

Exactly, the gr Corolla is looking to have similar power to the Veloster and a bunch more weight.

And it does exist.

I already pointed out the GR Yaris.... And it doesn't exist here and never will.

Beside, why worry about it? It's not like it would be a car on your radar unless it met your impossible standards.

Oh. I'm actually surprised. I'm not defending what the car might be just cuz. I have high hopes, probably too high.

Garage
it'll be AWD, manual, and close to 300 hp.

The cancelation of the STI is just a little too coincidental IMO for it not to be this way.
