CONS
Small trunk won't fit much more than a couple of small suitcases

No manual transmission option

The 2018 Audi S3 is a blast to drive, but it suffers from a tiny rear seat and the Volkswagen Golf R offers the same performance with more room for less.

Pros
Tremendous performance bang for buck
Great powertrain
High-end LTE connectivity
Svelte shape

Cons
Tiny rear seat
No manual transmission
Gets pricey with options

The 2020 Subaru WRX comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed manual, continuously variable-speed automatic.Redesigned front bumper for WRX STI.Keyless access and push-button start now standard on WRX STI.WRX adds welcome lighting.

Pros
Both the WRX and WRX STI offer swift and near best-in-class acceleration
Superb handling and steering response on twisty roads
Full-time all-wheel drive enhances traction and performance
Offers several premium safety options

Cons
Excessive wind and road noise
Interior quality lags that of competitors
STI's high-performance suspension makes for a rough ride

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2020 WRX continues to display the same hooligan-in-training personality that put it on the map, but Subaru has stirred in a few additional upgrades to keep things interesting. The Performance package brings Brembo brakes with red calipers (four-piston in front, two-piston in rear), a sunroof delete to save weight, and Recaro performance front seats. The driver's seat features eight-way power adjustability because even delinquents need to be comfortable now and then.

Pros
All-wheel drive, manual transmission, engaging personality.

Cons
Noisy cabin, low-brow interior, stiff-legged ride.
