It looks fantastic. Its very nose long with a nice swept back profile which makes is look huge. Its definitely something I'd be happy to put in the driveway, in awd form. This was a loaded Titanium with a 2.0 ecoboost and sticker was $34k and change.
The hybrid version is suppose to be a prius contestant.

MPG on the ST seems varied so far, based on what 1 forum has in a 150 post thread. I wouldn't be surprised to find people averaging around 25. Highway people are easily pulling 28-30. I averaged 20-21 in my WRX's over that 3+ years.

I don't claim to be an expert in any way. In fact, I'm probably the opposite.


One thing I'm interested in is handling in snow and bad weather. One thing reviews are saying is that you can get the backend out slightly by lifting off the gas in a turn
yeah I understand. the GR subarus don't feel the same as the GDs either. can't wait for the new fiesta either.
