Steering ratio refers to how much you have to turn the steering wheel to turn the wheels to an angle. A lower steering ratio means a driver can make tighter turns for less sharp steering. The average steering ratio ranges between 12:1 and 20:1; the new WRX can turn 1 degree by steering at 14.5 degrees, an improvement over last year's model.
Overall, the WRX, as with successors to car lines, is a considerable improvement over last year. In fact, it has improved so much that some say it warrants its own line from the Impreza. Subaru's racing heart is still pretty much alive in the WRX, with numerous New Orleans car dealerships like Baldwin Subaru preparing for its arrival.
