I borrowed my friend's MX6 to drive home tonight, its about 30 miles. He just sold his (wife's) WRX wagon, and he always said the MX6 handled better than the WRX. I believed him, but after driving it myself for while, I can tell just how much better it handles. This thing is by far the best handling car I have driven. I have driven plenty of FWD and RWD and some great AWD cars too. It handles better then all of them, including the S4 and WRX. Truly amazing from a FWD.
