    This. I guess the new ones aren't quite as much of a "box on wheels" as the older USDM models, though in fairness, I don't know the drag coeff's of either.

    according to this site, the wrx is a has a Cd of 0.33 and the camaro a Cd of 0.34. So, yes, in fact the wrx is more aerodynamic than a camaro

    Now we just need to know the Cd vs weight vs power ratios of each vehicle to be able to make a conclusion ...

    Just curious ... how much of a difference in Cd of .01 would make and what is the standard deviation of error of the test? I'm forgetting most of my physics here but I'm sure that they Cd has a exponential relationship with velocity.

    But the drag coeff. has then to be multiplied by the surface area, if my recollection is right. Then the question is which has more surface, so the smallr the car the better the result. The WRX might gain an advantage from that..., But then, who cares?!
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    In the end, it makes just as much of an impact on my appreciation for either car as do the magazine quarter mile times.
