STi's are built in Japan first of all, a place where handling is more important than engine displacement (this car only has a 2.5litre engine btw) and Japan is the land of so called sports like "drifting" and many other track type racing events where handing is always a top priority. If it was an American car you were talking about and you mentioned a Mustang than yes cornering would be its weak spot. 4WD gives the STi the traction and grip but the adjustable differential allows the driver to distribute the power to the wheels where he needs it. The owner of this car went the extra step and installed custom coil-over suspension, as you can see the car is pretty low to the ground as well. Seems like this car can corner really well
