and when we say “plenty,” we mean it: the revised WRX now blasts to 60 mph from a standstill in an electrifying 4.7 seconds. That’s 1.1 seconds quicker than the 2008 model—and get this—0.3 second quicker than we’ve managed in a WRX STI, the supposedly higher-performance version of the WRX. The fact that the WRX is now substantially quicker seems absolutely bonkers, but there are a couple of good explanations. First, the WRX STI weighs a hearty 180 pounds more than the base WRX, according to our scales. Second, the STI and its closer-ratio six-speed manual call for two shifts to 60, while the regular WRX’s five speed hits 60 mph in second gear. By the time the pair travel a quarter-mile, the ’09 WRX loses some ground, though; both cross the line at 102 mph, with the base Rex edging out the STI by just 0.1 second, 13.5 to 13.6.
