Road noise

Hi All,

Looking at maybe buying a Subaru Impreza WRX.

Hopefully find one all standard including the exhaust.

I have tinnitus so have to be careful with loud noises - this probably puts a decent exhaust system out the window.

My main question is: what are these like with road noise? say on the motorway?

Are they noisy? My current car is about 80-90db which is on the limit really. I assumed these would be quieter standard as they're a saloon and probably better built.

If anybody is able to get a decibel reading that would be fantastic, as many iPhones have apps etc.

Thanks for any help.
