Haha, well you do realize the Impreza uses a traditional 4-speed automatic... right? Not even a CVT. Well the 2009 model I drove did at least. But to be honest it wasn't that bad. The throttle was extremely responsive and there was never any lack of power with its choice of gear, even as I tossed it around hilly back roads. I seriously came close to actually buying it.

But yes, dual clutch Subies would kick major ass. It would definitely help improve the fuel economy to get more of that horsepower and torque down on all four wheels. Anyway sorry... getting a little off topic here.

Oh it still uses that ancient 4 spd...terrible. How bout instead of shoving the sti body kit on your cars subbie, you update your powertrains and improve your interior quality since your starting to fall behind. They have a new updated boxer engine too, but from what I rear it puts out the same power and only gets 1 mpg better then the last one...not really sure what the point of the upgrade. Sorry very off topic

The rear quarter looks too much like a mix of a vibe and a caliber but otherwise I like it.

I was wondering the same type of thing. The last Focus RS only sat two in the back. The prelimniary pictures of the ST do look as if it will have two bucket seats in the back, but those pictures also looked like renderings rather than actual photos.

Posted via FF Mobile to be honest i hope it does only seat four. Five is too much for the car anyway, too much extra weight, and one to many mouths yapping. Besides bitch seat is never comfortable and its not the safest seat...in a car this size it might as well not exsist. And when I have to drive friends some where Ill just be like sorry only room for three more people...i hate cramming people into my focus.
