Heading down to dealers tomorrow, not gonna buy either of them tomorrow for sure, but will test drive both.
My requirement is a bit strange, I *need* to get the automatic tranny, because my wife and I are gonna share this car, so auto is a must
The dealers here seem very eager to sell the CVT model (probably no one wants them ... ?)
Got a quote for Premium model $29000 (Edmund invoice price is $28743), which isn't bad but not great either, and I still hope for some more reduction.
The Mitsu dealer gave me quote on '14 Ralliart for 26850 (Edmund invoice price 28006), which is a solid 2k less then the WRX (and 1k below invoice!), plus, it got a twin-clutch automatic tranny!
I know wrx is certainly the one with better value here (more reliable, more power, new engine, new model, prob lower insurance rate), but I'm not sure if I can get below invoice for it. Also, I'm a bit on the fence on CVT vs. twin-clutch, I heard twin-clutch is kinda clunky at low speeds, while really smooth when driving hard, does anyone have experience on this? Thanks!
