Does anyone know how the WRX compares to the Mitsu Ralliart? I know everyone always talks STI vs Evo, but have never seen a comparison against these two.

Automatic transmition vs manual. Smaller trunk vs big enough that my dog fits. Wrx wins big time.

only thing's I've ever heard is that they tried doing a detuned turbo version of the Evo...and put it in a regular Lancer body without anything special. So I'd say it was closer to the "Impreza GT" than anything...

ewww,who came up with that name,Ralliart.
I think Andrew Cowan. It was supposed to be Mitsu's answer to Ove "The Pope" Andersson's Toyota Team Europe. It's always sad to see things change like that.

I'm just got my new WRX 2011. I traded my ralliart 2009 for this baby. There's a lot of differences between thoses cars and the mayor is the tranny. The ralliart's twin clutch transmission is really fun to use for performance. But for a cool day to day ride it's a jerk. The shifts are to close and you are 45 miles per hour on sixth. Those cars are fun, ralliart have superior equipment, superior integral traction system but subaru have a lower driving position, lower gravity center and are more powerful engine. I love my WRX a lot more.

I would also be interested in knowing which equipment is better...just for my own personal education. A twin-clutch Ralliart was never on a short list of cars that I was interested in; 3 pedals, please.

In Canada compare to standard WRX Ralliart have xenon light, board computer, recaro seats, 18" alloy wheels, aluminium hood, better sound system, better bluethoot, 3 modes adjustable traction control and It can surprise you on a start because twin clutch transmission on sport automatic mode shift quicker than anyone with manu tranny (power boost arrive 1000 rpm earlier than WRX). It's not a cheap car and for race he is realluy funny. But as told I prefer my new Sub who is also funny to drive . But take my opinion in a subjective way. I'm 57 years old.

Cool stuff!
You'll find that most here prefer a true manual due to its fun factor, and aren't concerned about the milliseconds involved.

Welcome aboard, btw. I'm 45 if it matters. :rotfl:

agreed yet again, having the 11 WRX it pretty much keeps up with even the EVO (yes the EVO still edges it out) but the WRX will surely beat the Ralliart

In what? A straight line? The EVO consistently beats the STi around tarmac stages, and the STi is the high performance derivative of the WRX.
