The 2015 Subaru WRX STI is the real deal. Ignore the detractors who have yet to drive the new car; it’s not at all a mildly updated carryover.

Subaru truly has raised the proverbial bar with the new STI in nearly every way. With improved handling, increased steering feel and a better interior, it’s quickly become a favorite new sports sedan at the AutoGuide.com office.

But what is it like in everyday life? What should owners expect with the new Subie? To find out, we spent a week behind the wheel of a new STI, seeing how it handles day-to-day life. Here are five important observations we made during our time with the new WRX STI.

    They should have a quiet mode where the exhaust muffler system has a solenoid that will shunt the exhaust through quiet mufflers when you want it quiet. So if you want to sneak into the neighborhood or out of the neighborhood late at night you don’t wake everybody up even if you barely press on the gas at all.
    Being loud all the time isn’t good.

    Also the MPG, why can’t it get decent MPG if you stay out of the boost by being real light with the throttle? Auto start stop would be nice with a button to disable it of course
