If what you are looking for is performance.... WRX is obviously worlds better than the ****ty hyundai...... Tell your bitch friend to go to a windy road with you and watch how fast you lose him.
Straight line...... who really gives a ****, you guys would probably end up being kinda close, but I think the wrx would take the cake because of the traction off of the line and the manual tranny.
Practicality------ 4doors>2doors AWD>RWD
ALSO, if your girlfriend can't drive a manual...... either teach her, or get a new girlfriend.
Last but definitely not least..... HE DRIVES A F**KING HYUDAI!!!!! all you have to say to your buddy is "BRO.... YOU DRIVE A F**KING HYUNDAI" and you've won the argument
