Journeys : June July 2009
Life on the move One area where these two miss out compared to big brother Evo and STI is in the braking department. The Evo’s Brembo brake package is among the most powerful I have experienced, with the STI not far behind and while both siblings get upgraded brakes from the standard models they don’t come close to the big boys, particularly after repeated applications. The Subaru’s anchors do outperform the Ralliart’s after multiple heavy stops. While the major reason for purchasing these cars is the drive experience, creature comforts are plentiful in both. The Ralliart gets six-CD sound with mp3 and aux input, climate control, auto-sensing wipers, dusk-sensing headlights, Bluetooth phone connectivity, cruise control (and the list goes on), all as standard equipment. The Rex doesn’t fare quite as well with standard gear but still has plenty to offer with sixCD sound with mp3 and aux input, climate and cruise control and self-levelling xenon headlights, to name a few. Both offer 5-star ANCAP safety with multiple airbags, antilock brakes, stability control, seat belt pretensioners and more. The Ralliart is a worthy adversary for the WRX – I believe it caused Subaru to have a rethink on the current model. Let’s hope Mitsubishi stays committed to the program and keeps the Ralliart on the sales floor for many years to come.
