 Pros Rated one of the safest vehicles in its class, the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4-Door Sedan offers a safe riding experience with air bags on all sides. Safety reviews from the manufacturer confirm this fact.

 Pros The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine exudes power for its small size. Built to race if needed, the STI models are quick on the road, and offer superior handling capabilities.

 Pros An upgraded interior affords more room then in past model years. You won't feel trapped inside while enjoying long, leisurely rides on the open road.

 Pros All the options you could ever ask for in a car. You're in control of exactly how the STI operates on the road in any environment you drive it in.

 Pros All wheel drive comes included, and ensures a safe, sure-footed ride. You'll command the streets through bad weather situations.

 Pros Race car looks that have been upgraded from previous years bland design.

 Cons Even with the smaller 4-cylinder engine under the hood, the gas mileage is terrible compared to other vehicles in 2011. At the 17/23 ratio, you'll be spending more then you'd like on gas in today's high price environment.

 Cons Our review shows the STI only comes with the manual 6-speed transmission.

 Cons No automatic limits. Everything in the STI, from the DCCD, SI-Drive, and the suspension are be controlled by the driver. This may become intimidating to people who lack specific knowledge in these areas.

 Cons Although more roomier then in the past, the STI is not as large inside as it could be. Compared to other sedan models from other manufacturers, the STI is tiny.

 Cons Naturally, the biggest factor to a car buyer will most likely be the price. If you compare the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4-Door Sedan to the cheaper WRX base version, you'll notice quite a drastic price difference. Considering each model looks about the same, and the WRX won't require so many controls, buyers may be tempted to save money as a result.
