That line of reasoning just doesn't mean much in a BMW forum. The #1 selling sedan is a Toyota Camry - It's a boring, soulless driving experience. But it's what appeals to the majority of consumers (the majority aren't BMW enthusiasts) - it's relatively cheap, relatively comfortable, and very reliable.

I think Subaru's main draw is cheap cars that offer AWD in a sea of FWD offerings. There's still a cult following behind the WRX as a performance car - but like a lot of other Japanese manufacturers, it hasn't really stayed up to par with the times - in this case performance.
