I must say the Impreza sedan isn't half bad, mainly because its basically a legacy, take off the front grille and it would be ok, nothing special but ok. But the hatch back is pure ugly in my mind, it should have been two doors and smaller and more sporty
One is a sporty compact and one is a midsize sedan.
Sharing a chassis /= same market/class of car or same car. The Impreza and Forrester have shared the same chassis for years. Obviously different vehicle and different markets.
