One thing I think the people complaining about the lack of a hatchback are forgetting is that the new wrx is pretty much a 2013 impreza with flared fenders. Well, have you guys seen
the 2013 impreza hatch? It's HIDEOUS
Subaru has never been known for pretty cars, but I think it's one of the worst. Imagine if they showed everyone that concept and then came out with this thing? They'd have to change almost the entire car to make it palatable, and I think that would have been too expensive for them.
