It's a disaster! For the first time ever the Impreza is off my short list of new cars I would buy..

Looks ok in my book, inoffensive at least, but good looks wasn't a consideration when we bought our Subaru, and won't be when we buy another. I'm really liking the fuel mileage (36 mpg highway) with AWD of the new Impreza, although it does take a horsepower hit, it loses weight too.

I don't like it. If it's gonna look like that it better make up for it in function.

Well since nearly the past decade of Impreza's have done nothing for me. This is almost a step in the right direction. I see potential here for a nice WRX or STi, I could be wrong but I like that hot librarian look.

Wow, they just keep making it worse. It went from good looking to GREAT, then meh with the hatch only Sti to the one after that which was boring to just plain and bordering on ugly now. Such a shame.

Subie's never been my thing, nice engines aside, but I've always respected their unique Subie-ness. Niche automakers should embrace their niche-ness. Starting with the last generation, unfortunately, we started to see them moving to anonymity. And now it's all the way there.

Definitely better than the previous version, which was just an inchoate mash of, well, I'm not sure what. While no epitome of the design arts, it is at least a bit more balanced and integrated. On the other hand, it's also become a bit more generic, dissolving into the sea of not dissimilar small cars, loosing a bit of that Subaru funkiness which has set it apart for better or worse.

If Subaru could only somehow come up with a distinctive avant garde design that simply isn't just weird they'd rule the world because the car's themselves are actually very good with good engineering. Currently they seem to see saw between bland and batty, stylistically.

A friend of mine had a 2005 STi and I think that's the last good looking Subaru I've seen.
