1. Subaru Impreza WRX

For decades, Subaru has been one of most powerful four-cylinder cars on the market. Under the hood is a flat four engine with 2.5-liters of displacement, as well as a turbocharger. This combo delivers 305 HP, which goes to all four wheels via a six-speed manual. It’s a true driver’s car with a proper manual gearbox and great road holding. But best of all, it has enough power to make this car fly.

The performance numbers are respectable, too. The WRX goes from 0 to 60 in just 5.1 seconds and has a top speed of 160 mph. However, the police know that, so they know if you drive a WRX, you are no stranger to fast driving or street racing. So, if you see flashing light behind you, you better be driving under the limit.
