The article compares the cars WRX STi and the Lancer Evolution IX. Subaru's STi has always had extreme ride and the hollowness of its sub-4000rpm performance as its downside. Subaru couldn't fix the hole by stuffing more tech into a 2.0-litre four so it finally relented, and now the STi's got nearly 50Nm more torque at 4000rpm. Evolution's torque curve is fatter, while lower at 355Nm, arrives at only 3000rpm. The Subaru's new 2.5 is superb, with very little by way of tremor or vibration. It spins freely and it manages to retain the off-beat boxer warble on big throttle openings.
