    looks like the srt-4 has four stars driver, four stars passenger while the wrx got four stars driver, five stars passenger in frontal.
    not too bad.
    i did just get to see a brand new wrx wagon hit pretty hard on the passenger side, and it held up quite well.
    the safety is one of the reasons i was happy to move from a neon to a wrx, but i've seen some badly wrecked neons and they hold up OK for the most part.

    there's one thing our cars won't save you from, collision with an SUV. did anyone see the crash tests of cars vs. SUVs after they beefed them up to pass the 5mph bump test? and SUVs always have the *best* drivers. something needs to be done with these things.

    Looks much better in the red than it does in the yellow. I still think it looks awful from the side (at least the wheel gap on the WRX is warranted -- gravel driving), but the front view is nice, if not a little too busy, or maybe just a little too Dodge. All in all a nice fast car, just not want I want in a car.

    Can you really see Muscle Car guys driving this thing. I see littel spoiled kids who have no idea how to drive and daddy's girls driving this thing. The chance of running into one that can actually drive it fast enough to beat a stock WRX will most likely be slim.

    Look at the crash tests WRX vs. Neon

    Thanks for the link JTREX. Everyone should also try comparing the crash test results of the neon SRT-4 vs. WRX.

    In short, the impreza recieved the top rating in EVERY category. The neon gets marginal overall, with a few poor ratings.

    Unless the SRT4 has been drastically upgraded in the safety department, it can't compete with the WRX in safety according to those numbers.

    Couple that with the fact that the average age level and maturity level of the SRT-4 driver will more than likely be much lower than that of the WRX driver and you have a recipe for disaster. Not so sure cheap high HP not so safe cars are the best thing for America's most spoiled generation.

    OMG, you guys, no one is trying to convince you to sell your WRX's for SRT-4s. Some of you get so defensive. Now you guys are knocking on it's safety scores .

    Hell yes I am, did you see how poor they are???? Do you not care about being safe? I have praised the car where it deserves praise, but I would rather walk away from an accident then have crushed legs.

    I could care less about safety ratings. I ride a motorcycle and bicycle in an urban environment. A Justy has more crash protection that I'm used to.
