The past 12 months have been great if you've got the mentality of a 17 year old and you just want to go fast.
That's because there's been plenty of model debuts that are relatively cheap and eager to please.
Several of those cars include the all-new BMW M235i, Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG and the Subaru Impreza WRX STI. Undoubtedly all three are great cars; however, when it comes to picking the king of kings, you may have your work cut out for yourself.
All have more than 300 horsepower, all feature forced induction and all are — in my opinion — good looking. So, what will it be for YOU?
One of the buff books got behind the wheel and this is how it shook out:
3rd Place: Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG
Big on speed, style, and price; small on emotion.
2nd Place: BMW M235i
A well-balanced rear-driver in need of options for pizzazz.
1st Place: Subaru WRX STI
Launch Edition: Loud, fast, surefooted, amenity-packed—it typifies fun.
Checking out the results, we have to ask:
1) What is BMW doing wrong since one of the reviewers exclaimed it was the best handling Bavarian in 10 years?
2) Do YOU think BMW got robbed in this test?
