JUDGES’ COM­MENTS “It’s a blast from the past – as in, 2009”

Motor (Australia) - - FIRST DRIVE -

12TH WARREN LUFF

“The STI is re­ally good. It’s got a great chas­sis that re­ally gives a lot of driver feed­back. Prob­a­bly its big­gest down­fall is the er­gonomics in­side. You feel like you’re sit­ting on a park bench as there’s no sup­port from the seats in ei­ther the back or in the base. And that’s prob­a­bly the big­gest down­side of it. Chas­sis-wise it’s re­ally strong. The brakes, a usual Achilles heel of the STI, started to give away a lit­tle bit, but over­all it’s a fun car.”

12TH DAVID MOR­LEY

“Why do I still like it when it beats me up so?”

14TH DY­LAN CAMP­BELL 14TH SCOTT NEW­MAN

“Has been passed by its ri­vals, lit­er­ally and metaphor­i­cally”

14TH LOUIS CORDONY

“As hot hatches get bet­ter to drive each year, this gets worse”
