Im just going to say it, WTH were they thinking.

Though, the drivetrain and powertrain is amazing. and by drivetrain, i mean the 6 speed tranny.

They ruined the way the car looks. Just like every other car manufacturer does as they come out with newer models and designs. It looks like a Kia Optima. Smh.

I don't know what everyone is bitching about

You'll hate it now, but in 6 months, a year, you'll love it.

Think back to 2005 when the 2006 came out. Same with the 2008 model. Blah barf, everyone hates it, then everyone likes it.

Personally, I think it looks good. Aggressive headlights, fog lights, angled vents/openings in the front. I think the front looks great. The sides do look a little bland, but a WRX is based on the Impreza still... a 4 door sedan with a turbo. The rear also looks decently aggressive with the quad tips and diffuser.

My only two grips are the wheels and side mirrors. I think the mirros look more lick truck or SUV mirrors... they need to be closer to the body and concealed. Looks like a beagle with it's ears up. I like the wheel color, but not the arrangement of spokes.

Overall, I like it.

It's an improvement over the previous Hatch model. Still not up to my standards in a tough looking sporty car. It's too roundy and soft edged.

It looks like soft doo doo........ why change from the aggressive concept? You split the line....it's now Impreza AND WRX/WRX STI. Make that crap aggressive. Did they learn nothing from the BRZ which sold like crack rock in the Bronx? Not to mention being critically acclaimed by just about everyone. Aggressive sporty looks can work.....Stop with this make it look like an S model Corolla with a hood scoop and give me this VVVVVVVV without the yellow accents.....end rant

they might be saving the more aggressive bumper and rear quarters for the STI. they need to give more reasons to buy the sti over the wrx

Don't be too excited. The 6 speed is based on the 5 speed. Not nearly the strength of the STi unit. Think LGT Spec B box.

I think it is funny how many people are complaining it looks nothing like the concept. The same general lines, shapes, and elements are in the production car as the concept. The issues with the concept is there is no way to fit the current driveline in that car, in a dimensional sense and there is no head room in the cabin. Personally, I think they did a good job of taking the ideas of the concept and creating an easy to produce production model. At the end of the day, they sell more cars to the general public, and not to your "hardcore" enthusiasts.
