2009 Corolla vs smoother quieter options
Now I'm thinking of "graduating" and getting something else as I don't have anything right now and will be moving back to the US in December. I have plenty of time to research things.
Here are my wants: It has to be at least as quiet and smooth. I'd like better, but at least that. I'm generally a very conservative driver, but the thrill of other peoples cars always looks fun, however; I didn't even push my Corolla ti it's limits so I'm not sure if "sportier" is of any real concern. Bigger engine is not a requirement. Might be fun to know it's there, but I don't know if I want to sacrifice the great MPG that the Corolla gives me. I was getting 40+ with it.
So what is quieter and smoother? I can spend more, but it has to be worth it.
The one car I've always wanted, but never could justify was the Subaru WRX and the new one looks and sounds amazing for the money, however; I don't have any clue how it compares in the smooth and quiet. I read some reviews that complained about the noise, but in comparison to what? Other high end cars? As far as smooth, I'd think it would be worse making it all sporty, but I could be wrong there too.
So what are your thoughts and suggestions? Please don't suggest a Civic or a Mazda3 as they are not quieter or smoother.
