Question Which car is the 2.5RS's biggest competitor? (just for discussion)

Just as a general "look-back" I glanced through the new car prices/reviews of 2000. The more I looked the more I thought about what kind of cars the RS is competing with.

Naturally we all give Honda owners a hard time, specifically the late model Civic Si owners. And the Celica has gotten ripped pretty good as well.

But IMO the closest car to the Impreza RS in terms of a competitor is the Golf VR6. After that, I'd have to say the Contour SVT and then (a big stretch) the Beetle turbo (whatever the high trim is).

Thoughts? I don't think the Impreza compares to the common "riceboy" or "boy racer" culture of the Eclipse, Civic, Integra, or Ceclica. And it's a good bit lower priced than the Prelude or the Jetta and a good bit higher priced than the ZX2/3 or the Sunfire/Cavalier performance cars.
