4. 2015 Subaru WRX STI
Michigan and Ohio State, Coke and Pepsi, Mario and Bowser; these are a few classic rivalries, but one epic automotive face-off involves the aforementioned Mitsubishi and Subaru’s WRX STI.
These cars are bitter enemies and justifiably so because they stack up so evenly. Both vehicles feature all-wheel drive, they’re both powered by turbocharged four-cylinder engines, they both offer manual transmissions and they both hail from Japan.
The STI has a 2.5-liter boxer powerplant under its hood. It delivers 305 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual is the only gearbox available in this Scoobie; all-wheel drive is standard of course, as is a gigantic wing. Spoiler size is one definitive area where the WRX trumps the Evo and we’re not sure it’s a stat worth bragging about.
