Pictures here



I was excited about the car being a trim hatch instead of a sedan/wagon, but wow... did they ever **** it up. All this while Mitsubishi is finally taking the base Lancer seriously - the new one is a sharp car, almost looks like an Alfa-Romeo.

Looks like, if I need a practical car in the near future, I'll be getting an '06-'07 Impreza while I still can.

I can deal with everything except that grille (even tho the side profile SCREAMS mazda3 :| )

good thing is the aftermarket will fix the grille im sure. :)

The front almost looks like the old ford crown vic.



And the side profile is definately Mazda3!!!

I have this theory that all the car manufacturers have a running bet to see who can make the ugliest new car.

The front looks like a retarded ford falcon from the land down under. the estate model imprezas never sold well either, that wont change even if it does say WRX on it. I see a big flop coming.

And my dad wonders why I hate new cars. The styling department must have been sleeping or too lazy to come up with something new. Give me the old two door 22B anyday.

It's "ok." That's only because I personally love hatches (had a 1990 Audi Coupe Quattro).
OK is not something I would want to hear from the general public if I was coming out with an update of a passionately loved model line.
Would I buy it? No. An aftermarket 06-07 Wagon? Yes.
About the grill... really Subaru? Really?

Hmm, are we sure that's the version that s coming over here? Sometimes, Europe gets different versions cause hatches sell better over there.
If thats the European version then the US one will be even more revolting.

It's better looking than any of the previous WRX's, that's for sure

What wierds me out is that I love the formfactor of "WRX: The Hatchback", but I hate the front rear.

I also hate the 06/07 front on the sedans. I'll buy a saabaru before I buy an 06/07.

... but put the 06-07 front on the 08 Hatchie and i'm all "Where do I put my pre-order in?"
