I'm still not digging the front grill, but the rest of the car looks good.

Not as bad as I was thinking. Awaiting up close on the wagon. Lowered a tad, aftermarket wheels and a new grill and it would be much better.

I'm so happy it doesn't have the same tails that were in the magazine. I hated those tails. The rear end of this thing looks like a Legacy GT crossed with a last-gen Mustang.

It's not bad.

That is the Sedan. The Hatch is identical to the MT article.

From the News and Rumors thread:

"In conjunction with the new chassis, the Subaru Impreza and WRX feature an all-new doublewishbone rear suspension. "

Neat.

I have not looked at specs yet or seen the inside of course, but the trunk space looks much bigger now.

Yeah, saw that and got a little jealous.

The front's growing on me. I still don't like the taillights or the yaaawn side profile.

Thanks a lot Evan! I'm refreshing like a champ over here

EDIT: Oh, and those wheels are horrid.

see that's the problem...it looks to much like a legacy to be an impreza...it should still have the boxy fenders...i think really that is all (+ the stupid grill) that needs to be fixed

kinda reminds me of the focus sedan. i really dont like it, the impreza has always kept the same basic design and body lines since 93, you can look at the 06 next to a 93 and tell that they are basically the same car, just a few facelifts but still the same critter. the new impreza looks not quite right.

First look at side-on view and I'm thinking Lexus. Looks good. I like the longer windows.

But of course, I bought the Legacy.

If they improved nothing else I hope the road/cabin noise is better!

Okay great. I still hate those tails and I'm glad they aren't on the sedan.

I hate it ..I've been yelling about it on the official thread, so why not yell about it in this one. I hate the rear end of the sedan, I hate the whole look of the new car. I also hate the dual exhaust. They should just call it a legacy junior!

Actually, it's not too bad IMHO. At least not as bad as I expected it would be - I'm very interested to see the interior though.
