I suspect the WRX is dead in the U.S. when the manual goes away. The vast majority of WRX buyers expect a manual, it is also one of the few things that distinguishes the WRX from lots of other sporty sedans on the market. All wheel drive is pretty common now, so the WRX main distinguishing attributes are affordable all wheel drive, sport sedan with a manual. Otherwise you can buy something that does everything else it does better.

Next time I buy a car, I might even swallow my dislike for the cosmetics and consider it. Next go around for me I probably will shop three cars, BRZ or toyota Counterpart, Corolla GR or WRX.
