For ages, these two companies have been pit against one another. With each successive generation of their rally-inspired road car, we’ve seen countless fanboys on both sides of fence loudly proclaim why their car of choice is superior. The newest generation of both the Lancer Evolution and the WRX STi have now arrived, so it’s only fitting that we pit these age old rivals against one another to determine who is superior once and for all.

The comprehensive comparison takes a look at everything from creature comforts to driving impressions, as well as the realities of price and performance.
