I think not. The Subaru Impreza WRX STi comes in sedan version too. I'm a 100% sure. I just googled it.

They will be launching it as a 5 door hatch initially.

will follow by a sedan the year after

Breaking News - Subaru Australia

For some reason (looks especially) i thinks Impreza sales are gonna drop

Just like they did when the launched the Bug eyed ones in 2002

One of my mates who owns a MY07 (current model) says that some Subaru dealers have taken off all their discounts on their current models. (Hear-say)
Probably a sign of lack of faith in the new one. (just like US - the CONSUMERS)

I like the evo more than the subaru in looks, but performance I feel the subaru is a monster, 6 speed transmission. Its a difficult choice, Evo in a straight line will be faster, because 5 speed more torque in every gear. Subaru will get torque in 3 4 5 6 gear. But in a street race its Subaru all the way or say pune express. Subaru takes the evo clean and clear.

Are you guessing or are these performance details referenced from somewhere??

Evo 9 MR edition is a 6 speed close gear. The only flipside on a current Evo is that the turbo kicks in late at around 2500 rpm, whereas in subarus there is no turbo lag. But its a 0.1 - 0.3 sec lag.

I chose the evo over the subaru for:

Evo IX=great to mod and cheap, great for track, interior , more responsive steering, faster than STi stock , more of a race bred car.

STi = $$$ to mod, nice interior if you're into the 2 tone , cruise control, 6 disc cd, auto climate, more of a daily driver( which i am not)

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX Sti vs 2006 Mitsubishi Evo IX
