Hello! I am finally getting my new car- was hoping to get some opinions on the WRX here since you all actually own and drive them.
I drive a lot of dirt and gravel roads/driveways that are often washed out sometimes pretty badly. My Mazda3 hatchback is looking pretty beat up right now and I am going to do the kinder thing and find it a new home and get a more suitable car haha.
Anyway, I was concerned about the ground clearance, the WRX does sit a little higher than my Mazda but not sure if it is high enough? I frequently scrape the underside of the Mazda.
Also looking at Subaru because of its reputation for handling snow and bad weather really well- WRX just as good as the more "utility" cars (outback, forester etc)?
Was thinking briefly about a Forester or Crosstrek but really dont want to give up having a zippy little hatchback.
