In the continuing war of the Japanese rally-styled road cars the Evo beats Subaru's Impreza in looks and individuality. Performance-wise they're evenly matched but most people seem to fall into one camp or the other (if they can live with the leery looks at all).

Comfort

It is a full five seater, but one of the few cars where the rear is suited only to adults - put your kids in the back and you'll get done for shaking babies as well as speeding. Your mother probably wouldn't be too happy back there either. You can unsettle the stomachs and almost certainly induce injury all but the most robust of passengers.

Practicality

Technically, given that the performance will embarrass a Porsche four seats and a sizeable boot is exceptionally practical but take it easy with the weekly shopping in the back.

Behind the wheel

A blend of the good and not so good. You sit clamped in body hugging bucket seats gripping a sporty Momo steering wheel but the rest of the interior is old Japanese saloon car and utterly unexciting.
