2017 Subaru WRX

When Subaru announced that the current generation WRX was going to use a continuously variable automatic transmission some purists thought that their world was going to come crashing to an end. Fortunately for them, Subaru still offers a six-speed manual gearbox (and the CVT isn’t that bad, either).

Opt for the higher-performance 2017 Subaru WRX STI, and the only transmission available is a six-speed manual. The WRX is one of four cars tied for the No. 14 spot in our rankings of 25 compact cars. WRX prices start at $26,695, while WRX STI pricing starts at $35,195. Both models feature standard all-wheel drive.
