FOR MORE WRX VS. RALLIART:
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:
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
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

Street Fight: WRX v Lancer Ralliart v Mazdaspeed 3
CHECK OUT THE SPORT COMPACT COMPARISON:
Thanks to three turbochargers, 724 horsepower and five
limited-slip differentials, comparing the 2008 Mazdaspeed 3, 2008 Subaru
Impreza WRX and 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart should be more entertaining
than a cage match between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and New Kids on the
Block. Imagine the fun! Donny and Danny hangin' tough from the walls of the
cage while Joey, Jordan and Jonathan get tossed into the crowd.
The way we see it, our Rampage vs. New Kids bout is no different from
pitting the Mazdaspeed 3 — the current champ of the sport compact world
— against the Lancer Ralliart and Subaru WRX. On the track, an epic
ass-kicking is bound to ensue.
But comparison tests aren't always won on the track. Since these cars all
share a focus on real-world driving for enthusiasts, we weighted
performance as 25 percent of this test's scoring total, leaving the
remaining points to price (20 percent), feature content (20 percent), fuel
economy (15 percent), our subjective evaluation (15 percent) and personal
and recommended picks (5 percent).
So performance is important, but in the end, the most well-rounded car
