5th generation differences
Being in the market I keep going back and forth on what I may end up with (has to be a 6MT). What are the key things that are different from 4th to 5th generation. I noticed things like the uppipe and things like that, but are there reliability differences being that it's the first year of the next generation?
Way more room in the front; adults fully comfortable in the back seats.
Improved gas mileage.
Gearing change for 6MT; 6MT is essentially 5MT with a 6th gear overdrive.
Bigger fuel tank for extended range.
Improved cylinder head cooling; piston shape changed for weight reduction (2.5i).
130A alternator (110A 4th gen).
Greater turning radius.
GT only 2010-2012. 47 lbs greater weight. Increased HP (265 vice 243). Stage I 5th gen = Stage II 4th gen for performance with added torque in the low end.
GT is dual AVCS.
Heads modified for better combustion; piston shape modified.
Oil flow rate increased.
No up pipe; turbo mounted on the headers.
Limited 3rd part options for aftermarket.
Minuccims hit the big ones (don't think 4th gen had ELH. 5th gen has larger intercooler, brake caliper). If you find some vacation pics there's a section called "New Car Information" which includes a 194 page PDF that lists every difference between the 4th and 5th gen.
