By  | 

The 2016 Subaru WRX STi is without a doubt one of the hottest performance sedans on the road at the moment. Unfortunately this reputation has had a somewhat negative effect on the vehicle.

Popular for its racing rally roots, the Subaru WRX STi has since become a household name and with that said it appears that the negative attention it has attracted has appeared to be directed to the drivers itself.

A UK survey by a motor insurance company has found that Subaru WRX STi drivers have received more hostile treatment than other drivers on the road due to the impression the vehicle gives. Subarus in general in fact but with the WRX topping the list for hostility.

In fact, if you own a modified Subaru WRX STi, the chances of another driver giving you way is drastically reduced. With such a bad reputation, it may be time for Subaru to consider changing their methods of promoting the vehicle in order to counteract this image.
