1. Subaru Forester STI

Unfortunately, US car buyers never got the Forester STI but this car is one of the best examples of how to turn ordinary family SUV to a race car for the road. The standard Forester is well-known as one of the most popular mid-size SUV with dependable mechanics and nice features.

But, when somebody in Japan put Impreza STI engine into Forester, it turned the family car into rally beast with 265 HP, intelligent all-wheel-drive system and very vivid performance and handling.
