one is a nice semi-luxurious BMW small saloon.

The other is a rally car with car seats

I'd imagine the STI being quicker. We already know it's quicker than the M235i which is RWD and lighter( at Streets of Willow)...

Both are AWD but its so much diffrent, Even in old Subaru its mechanical AWD is way better than xDrive.
BMW is for sure more luxurious and more a road car.
New STI is much more focused on sport, handling.

This cars are close competitors, - both are AWD, almost even power from turbo engines, price is about the same.
I'm pretty sure that Subaru would be faster on a dirt country roads, but which wuld be faster on dry tarmac?
