Whoever designs the Subaru wheels is all over the place. We had those old ugly 5 spoke star pattern WRX wheels, which no one liked. The last WRX/STI had nice wheels, but they were like swapped. The WRX had the really nice wheels, while the STI had the okay wheels.

I think it's an improvement over the last body style. I like it. Do I love it? No, it'll be extremely difficult for me to "love" any new car ever again the way they're now developed.

That being said, I actually really fancy the new interior. Much more high quality, attractive, and less plasticky looking.







As for the side looking bland, I think it has mostly to do with the rear fenders looking small. Last year, they looked to bulge out a lot more. I think the new WRX's rear fenders are probably around the same size; it's just that they're more hidden streamline with the taillights, whereas last year the rear fenders bulged out separately.

Last year


Now.

Also, I think some might be quite disappointed when the new STI comes out. I was hoping for the new FA20 turbo layout to also carry over on the STI, but that doesn't seem to be the case. The STI will still be a 2.5L. Unless Subaru designed a 2.5L FA (very doubtful), rumor has it, it'll be an "updated" EJ25 with direct injection and the front mounted turbo.

I don't wanna go OT but I just want to throw out the Legacy Concept they unveiled at the same time looks pretty sick. I never get excited about "concepts" but bravo if it comes out looking anything like it. As far as the new WRX...I'll reserve judgement until I see it in person, but I'm sure it will grow on me over time. It looks very plain jane to me now...but the one I saw was red and I'm not a huge fan of red.

Wow, I am really digging that interior, minus the steering wheel and the size. I hate when anything more than the airbag and horn are integrated into the steering wheel. Just give me little finger paddles to control the radio or something. Also look how far that thing stretches forward. It looks like you can put a large pizza on there and still have space to put a shoe box behind it. The GEs dash is pretty large too though.

And that Legacy Concept is terrible. I feel like I'm looking at a Ford Fusion concept with a Subaru badge on it.

Guess the only thing to look forward to is the like..2020 WRX/STI or something.

My main complaint as well. Not only are they not wide enough, there must be an inch between the lip of the fender and the end of the wheel. Also, they are like 1-2 inches to smals. PLUSSSS their ugly as ****!
