Who really knows, all the cars in the game are mixtures of millions of cars combined together.

Never considered a Civic for the car, however the model shape does seen fitting; too round for the strong shapes of an IS, yet the test of the vehicle indeed looks like the Lexus, but accompanied with a Lancer Evo IV rear.

As much as I enjoy laughing at Too Fast Too Atkinson, I'm going to give a real response to a stupid argument:

 

This thread is stupid. More specifically, the poll is stupid. Its a bad poll. Constructed by someone who either really wants people to call this car a Subaru, or simply doesn't understand how to make a poll. Or both.

 

Your poll options include:

1 Subaru.

2 Mitsus.

1 Lexus.

1 Mitsu/Lexus.

 

This does a great job of splitting the vote. People who vote Lancer are spread across 3, and people who think Lexus (the actual answer) are spread across two, versus people who think Subaru who get to just pick 1 option.

 

So, by that token, your actual results are:

35 Subaru.

7 Mitsu.

46 Lexus.

 

Finally, considering everyone in the first camp is pinning the entire basis of their "case" on the fact that its AWD and has a hood scoop boyracer hood as being conclusive, and then brings up GTA4, I have one question: Prior versions had side exit exhaust pipes. Pretty sure none of these cars have ever had that, so how are yo conclusively telling me that a hood scoop makes it a Subaru when obviously the prior years side pipes would knock it out of that running?

 

The answer? Its a motherloving Karin. Move on with your lives and stop arguing over something so absolutely stupid.

 

(ps, the Vapid Bullet has a double round Corvette tail light, so its obviously a vette, amirite?)

The scoop and wing are in the exact shape of the lancer. Just sayin.

I've since changed it to frost white, no body kit or spoiler, and bronze rims.

Tail lights and back-end of the Sultan RS in gta5 is 100% evo, NOT Altezza....not the old style Altezza tail lights, not the new style Altezza tail lights...Sultan and Evo both have rear left exhausts, Altezza is rear right.... Altezza and Sultan have very similar body curves all around, but playing this game at game speed, the taillight sell the rear of the car as an Evo.
the current Sultan has the older Altezza front and the Evo back....no Imprezza at all anymore, IMO.

The Sultan is based on the or the 1990's GC Subaru Impreza WRX with Peugeot 405 headlights. It has a small, yet powerful turbocharged engine, and a four wheel drive drivetrain. Its performance is relatively strong in comparison with all of the sports coupes and supercars in the game, whilst its grippy four wheel drive system makes it particularly controllable; it is less prone to spinning out than the rear wheel drive cars, making it a good car for Gymkhana or cross-country road trip. The Sultan is the fastest four-door car in the game. The only drawback of the Sultan is it's poor build quality. The Sultan's front or back can be deformed even in low speed collisions with other vehicles. It is the high-performance counterpart of the Sentinel, taking over the role of Mafia Sentineland Sentinel XS.

 

Now manufactured by Karin (the GTA version of Toyota, Lexus, and Subaru), the Grand Theft Auto IV Sultan draws upon the Japanese import styling of the previous Sultan. It is mostly based on the first-generation Lexus IS (also known as the Toyota Altezza), although certain elements such as the rear lamp units are inspired by a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV. Other elements (such as the bonnet and spoiler of the Korean Mob variant) bear resemblance to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII. Interestingly, ordinary Sultans come with blued exhaust tips, similar to the (assumedly) titanium tips on the Futo GT.

Front end, Lexus IS, back, Lancer Evo VI.

Looks nothing like an Impreza, even with the Scooby style bonnet/hood.

Those tail lights are too similar to be splitting hairs...the shape, size and placement. Yes, the vette and ford GT have similar style tail lights.

0_0.jpgaltezza.jpgTME47K1.jpg

The Sultans tail lights are obviously VERY different from the Altezza but VERY similar to the Evo. The Altezza and Evo headlights are very different....in fact the Altezza tails were so different from anything else that 'Altezza style' tail lights became extremely popular for a while, as seen on this Neon, lol:

Evo VI*

All three. These arguments are so stupid.

No car in GTA is purely based on ONE real life car.

Futo

 

AE86 Levin's Coupe

 

Dominator

 

Purely Modern and Classic Mustang

It is not one car, but as others have said it is a mix.

 

Here is my Sultan RS looking 'Evo' like:

Based on the many differing body features, and(this is important) it's always been turbo'd.  I'd say it's a cross between the VII/Impreza.  Some of those options are never(at least popularly) turbo charged, but even stock consumer evo's and impreza's are...so yeah.  To clarify, since they base their renders loosely off real counterparts, i'd say it's a cross between the two consumer cars up there, that are almost always turbo'd.

But remember, the Toyota Altezza/Lexus IS300 were equipped with the famous 2JZ engine from the Supra that was twin-turbo charged.

Also, it was offered in both RWD and AWD in some markets.

More like 75% Lexus, 20% Lancer, and 5% Subaru.

I'd say a Lexus/Evo hybrid - like pretty much every other vehicle in the game, it's basically 'front half of car X, with back end of car Y'.

That said, with the right hood and paint scheme, you can make a reasonable Subaru facsimile - and personally, I actually reckon it's a decent substitute for a 6th-gen (late '90s) Honda Civic sedan:
