The EX is really comfortable, and great for riding on a long trip, or getting stuck in rush hour traffic, but it doesn't really stir the soul. The WRX has got ****-eating grin performance, but get stuck in a traffic jam, and rowing the stick for an hour could get old fast.
I went from a 06 WRX a 07 a 08 I have a bit of experiance behind each.

Each car did wonderful in it's market. I obviously felt in their market they were the best contenders.

I will say however that the WRX LTD's interior is very very close to the EX's interior. Besides some extra creeks and rattles in the WRX all things are almost equal.

I do however enjoy my EX. It's a bit heavy but has near 300HP and has no issues rolling out on the power. It handles like one would suspect but much better then anything else I test drove besides maybe the RDX. I'd love to compare a Q5 but they werent out yet and are a considerable amount more.
