WRX Takes On Ralliart: Subaru vs. Mitsubishi

FOR MORE WRX VS. RALLIART: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=138347??tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..2.* Stuff the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX into a corner, and you know it deserves a rematch with the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. It's no less refined than the 2008 WRX, but it goes in without paralyzing understeer and doesn't keel over as soon as you load the outside tires. Provoke it and you'll get some attitude. When you're back on the throttle hard at the exit, there's no rush to grab 3rd gear. Rescued from last year's rev-starved funk, the 2.5-liter boxer-4 engine wants to see its 6,500-rpm redline again. Most important, the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX isn't trying so hard to distance you from the drive. It rewards your efforts in the cockpit — one of the things that made the previous-generation WRX so likable. Probably this is also why the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is so involving to drive. Introduced last summer, this Lancer Ralliart is the long-awaited head-on challenge to the WRX dynasty and it kicked the 2008 WRX while it was down. Even compared to the 2009 WRX, Mitsubishi's Ralliart is a flashier package. It has mechanical limited-slip differentials both front and rear, a very neat automated dual-clutch gearbox, Recaro seats and the schnoz of a tiger shark. Evo Jr. has a nice stiff chassis, too. If the homely gray Subaru has any shot at winning here, it will have to do more with less.

Can Nissan Beat BMW? 370Z vs. 135i
SEE THE FULL COMPARISON: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/ What comes after Z?, we wondered when Nissan let the stage go black in 1996 and officially bid farewell to the Z-car at an event at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Sales of the twin-turbo 300ZX had been declining as fast as applications for library cards, so Nissan simply stopped selling the car in the U.S. It made us wonder where the Z fit in Nissan's future. The answer came in 2002, when the Nissan 350Z appeared, a serious sports car that seemed to measure itself against the Corvette in both speed and style. It brought people back to Nissan, but lots of the young enthusiasts didn't know what an icon the Z had been for the company since its inception in 1970. With the 2009 Nissan 370Z, all that changes. As a Z should be, the 370Z is a statement of purpose, not just another car on the showroom floor. With this second-generation version of the revitalized Z, the car has moved on from affordable performance to something that brings new descriptions into play — not only like quick, fast, strong and powerful, but also gorgeous, luxurious, nimble, graceful, delicate and smooth. This is a car so good that it makes you wonder what kind of car it is: a sports car, a sport coupe or a muscle-bound pony car? And that's where the 2008 BMW 135i comes in, a pocket-size BMW M3 with an affordable price tag to match.





Outlandish! Mitsubishi Outlander GT Prototype @ 2009 NYIAS
MORE 2009 NEW YORK AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/newyork/2009/mitsubishioutlande rgtprototypenews.html The Mitsubishi Outlander GT Prototype, unveiled here at the 2009 New York Auto Show, suggests this mild-mannered crossover may have some sporting potential lurking beneath its staid skin. Mitsubishi starts by massaging the SOHC 3.0-liter V6, lifting output by 10 horsepower to 230 hp while Boosting low-end torque. By reprogramming the engine/transmission control unit, the company also was able to enhance fuel economy. To improve handling, the engineers stiffened the suspension and fitted larger Brembo brakes, along with 19-inch OZ Racing wheels and performance tires. The Outlander GT also borrows heavily from the Lancer Evolution, notably the car's mighty Super All-Wheel-Control (S-AWC) system, employing a front limited-slip differential and an electronically controlled 4WD coupling to prevent wheel slip and provide greater all-weather traction. The Lancer provided styling inspiration as well, particularly in front, where the Outlander GT features a new grille, front bumper, fenders and hood, as well as reshaped headlamps, new side sills and rear bumper and a polished aluminum roof panel. Mitsubishi used grained, double-stitched synthetic leather and chrome accents in the cockpit, adapting aluminum racing-style pedals and a sport steering wheel from the Lancer Evo. Audiophiles will appreciate the upgraded Rockford Fosgate system, as well as the new FUSE Handsfree Media Gateway, which combines voice-recognition capabilities with Bluetooth-enabled hands-free calling and audio playback.





2008 Subaru Impreza WRX vs. 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 by Inside Line
For Edmunds' Inside Line article: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=121942 Sport compacts have it hard. Cars like the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX and the 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 — along with competitors like the Honda Civic Si, Mini Cooper S and Volkswagen GTI — are expected to do mutually contradictory things with something approaching perfection. They're supposed to be quick but economical; athletic but comfortable; sporty but practical. Oh yeah, and they can't cost a lot. Go ahead and dream the impossible dream.

We don't make them 250 pounds heavier. That's what Mitsubishi's engineers are for. In their efforts to make the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X stronger, more powerful and more luxurious, they made it heavier. A lot heavier. And heavier in this case means slower....
