Had my s15 for over 8 years bought it with factory warranty still on it and would never have sold it if my brother had not asked for it ! S15 is a great drivers car, light, agile bit of tail action here and there. Cheap parts, great ageless looks but is very compact inside (no backseat), shallow boot and can attract unwanted attention (popo).
Enter the Evo 7 I bought one at a great price unplanned that I thought could fill the void of the s15 it did to an extent great handling, good power delivery 4doors with boot space but has some bad points too. Feels like a fwd chews through tyres and fuel poor range 320-350km to a tank 35l can't do a u turn to save its life this also makes city car parks and some drive thrus difficult to navigate .
Neither has ever givin me any major mechanical issue
But they are two very different cars designed to go fast in different ways
Comes down to what you want and a deciding factor could be what you need or can afford . drive them and see ?
