edmunds picked the mitsu by inside line along with motortrend and r&t say wrx

I have to test drive both for myself but the wrx seems to be the better performance machine

No, that is a different article...the 09 WRX wins the comparo, plus there is a video.

A couple of guys found one car more enjoyable to drive over the other even though it wasn't the fastest in a straight line. There needs to be an investigation.

It's an opinion and nothing more. You are never going to get 100% of everyone to like one product over another. The performance numbers don't lie so if your bottom line is performance the WRX is the better car for you.

Aw I was hoping they'd stick a detuned 4g63 in the ralliart.

No. That was a blog entry posted by the Edmunds folks. The Inside Line team is a different group within the same company. Let's try reading more carefully next time.

+1 This is definitely not the same. Great review. I felt they evaluated the strengths & shortcomings of both cars fairly...

The Subaru sounds like it would suit me better. Plus it looks much better inside and out.

I would take a used Evo IX for the price though.

The WRX is significantly faster it would appear... and with that rear-end I can't see anybody wanting to sit in a new Lancer. Ugghh...
