Of course, no 6-speed 3.0R for the stupid lazy Americans.

Those lights in the rear bumper are kinda weird, I wonder what the purpose is.

I like all the body work, but it is too tall. The whole car looks bigger. With a drop it'd look killer. I like the smaller brake lights, though the bigger headlights and foglights really make the front end look huge.

I'm guessing rear fogs.


After looking it over a little more, I definately thin this is a step in the wrong direction. I was hoping for something more aggressive. The profile and rear remind me of a Ford Taurus/500. Not good.

I don't see that at all, but even so, anything is better than another Camry clone.

Overall, I like it. If anything, the styling is almost too conservative.

The new tails are nice... excluding the sedan's bumper lights, but that's it. Other than that, I think it's a step backward.

Anyway, I still think the best looking Legacy body design went out with the arrival of the 2000MY.

...Okay, the wheels are nice too...

I like it a lot. Headlights are far much better than the previous version. From the side, it has the styling of a BMW. And the ploshed WRX wheels look great IMHO.

I kinda like it, except for the front grill. It goes down too far, IMHO.

I like it, though the bumper is a little better on the european ones. I like the new taller grill, much more sophisticated styling all around.

None of this should surprise anyone though, this is what we saw last year for every other market.

If the rumors of Subaru making a turbo H6 are true...it may not be so non-functioning

Oh man would that be sweet

I'd be happy with a 300 HP h6 without turbo.

Ugh. I agree with MitchGT - too much like a Taurus. I'm definitely going to go ahead with my '97 Legacy swap.

I see a hint of 500 in the taillights, yes. But I'm willing to look past it...

I still say they should've kept the solid tail setup across the back because that's kind of a Legacy trademark...
