I kinda like it... but I like hatchbacks. Ain't so sure about that big spoiler in the back, but it does kinda balance it out in a wierd kinda way.

Looks like a toy, not what I would buy. But I'm sure they'll sell if they have the right gadgets under the bonnet :brow:

ewww...I don't like the wing. In fact, I don't like the car at all. It looks like a wrx/celica mix that went horribly wrong.

LOL. "...if the WRX was a looker, it would be too good to be true..." --quote from a car mag about the 2002 WRX. The Subaru fast-ugly tradition continues.

Subaru is good at building ugly cars that run great. As a very small auto company, they put their limited resources into engineering and skimp on the "look pretty" design end.

I must admit though that the boy racer look combined with the Alfa-Romeo nose job does go a bit over the top. Subaru needs to make a "stealth" STI without the "ticket-me-I'm-speeding" body add-ons --especially that spoiler... Anyone over 17 might feel a bit silly in it in the company of their peers.

Personally, I miss the '02 and '03 Imprezas. They were the best-looking of the new bunch. I liked the "bug eyed" headlights :D

That's a pic from the April '05 issue. Checkout the latest issue showing the new Impreza. Looks like they are thinking of a hatchback model. I like it! :slobber:
