Best overall bang for the buck

I test drove several cars in this class and overall this was the most fun. The Golf R is refined by terribly boring and given the continued reliability of this model I pulled it off my list. The Ford Focus RS was a performer and definitely not boring but the driving position was way too tall with a really tall front cushion. Just a bizarre and really uncomfortable driving position. The interior is also lacking quality with a ton of hard plastics. The rear seat room is laughable compared to the other two cars. Reliability has been suspect as well with cracked engine blocks affecting a lot of the 2016 and 2017 versions of the Focus RS. The STI is not the fastest of the three but it has the most room, the highest reliability record, full time AWD (the Golf R is a part time system and the Focus RS's system will sometimes shut off rendering it FWD only), and best aftermarket support.

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES

I drive about 12 miles a day for work, I got this car to have fun when I drive. The Sti surpasses my expectation. The car handles great and is fun to drive and the exhaust sounds amazing! The downside is that the seats are not comfortable and stereo/speakers are junk.

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
