ST, WRX, MS3 or Genesis 2.0t?
 
My 05 Focus is great but I am looking for a new car.

I am trying to stay under 22000 so that kind of knocks out any new cars, so that means the ST; but if I wait a few more months maybe I can swing it.

WRX
Pros:AWD
Cons:Weak trannny and interior styling.

MS3
Pro:Cheaper and loaded.
Cons:FWD, my sisters 07 Mazda 3 has had a few problems.

Genesis 2.0t
Pro:RWD and great interior
Con:A little pricy.

ST
Dont know much about it yet.

Any input would be great. Thanks.

This is my top choice as of now

did you do any searching... There is like 50 of these threads already just saying! I sold my SVTF and went and bought me a 05 WRX STI I LOVE IT! the interior i like more and love the styling, power, handling, and I get so many looks in it!

If you get a WRX or STI make sure its unmolested and has low mileage if its modded and has high mileage more than likely driven like piss!

MS3 are nice kinda harder to find and if I got one i would go with a Gen 1 they are cheaper, better looking IMO, and lighter... You could also go with a MS6 if you dont mind sedan look.

Genesis coupe, I dont really no much about that one...

ST kinda pricey compared to other Turbo Mid Size 4cylinder cars... New so any bugs it has you will be the first to know and experience it... Power isnt too high, price is fairly high, wont hold its value as well as a Subie, or MS3,6...


Thats my 2 cents... Hope it helped.

The Genesis is a sports car. Doesn't even belong in the running with the other three IMO.

Depends, what do you wanna do with it? Do you ever take your car off road? Do you have bad winters? Maybe the wrx. We have both of those in Washington, so AWD is a must for me after the focus. Do you really want to stand out? Very few people have the new ST, so that may be what you want. The Genesis would be an lot of fun too.

Personally, if I had the money, and if I hadn't already dropped an obscene amount of cash into the focus, I'd probably be in a wrx. Or the Taurus SHO or Fusion Titanium with AWD.

What are you smoking [scratch]

The WRX is more powerful, has better weight to power ratio, AWD.

I'm not huge fan of high power FWD cars, had a SRT-4 and 1st and 2nd gear were a waste. The genesis is nice because it is RWD, seems fun! I live in Florida so no winter here. Just want a quick daily driver that is reliable, RWD is a huge plus though.
