    I think it looks alright tbh, the current car isn't exactly a looker. They sell based on how they drive, not for winning beauty contests.

    Very true, but it doesnt look anything special without the Impreza shape! Hello Ford Focus! Its even a hatch now instead of a Saloon. Reminds me a bit of a Honda Civic lol

    I have mixed feelings on this car.

    it looks good
    it should hopefully perform/drive well

    but its not a true impreza to me

    GM's influence is obvious it's more shopping cart than rally slag.
    subaru have built this to compete with the golf/focus/astra/megane which if they can pull it off should generate more sales
    as a result its more sutble, less loud as they have put equal lenght exhaust headers on the car which does improve performance

    i like the fact that my impreza looks like a salon car on steriods and can be heard from half a mile away with its distinive burble so i think i will be sticking with it for a while.
