Evo or STI? The ST does not compete with those cars (from a marketing or performance point of view). They are not even close.

The VW GTI (the car that Ford is primarily targeting with the ST) is available with an automatic.

The ST is not some badass performance car (a Camry V6 has more HP and faster 0-60). It is a well balanced road car that was born and bred in Europe.
