Ok so now, if the Impreza is going to have the moustache grille, and the Tribeca is going to have the moustache grille, why the heck doesn't the new Outback have the grille it has in Europe and Japan?

A long time ago, when I was first introduced to the STi, it had a unique style that set it apart from any other compact. This new design is a bland clone for a Toyota / Mazda / Chrysler that has lost its uniqueness. I can't blame the mfg for doing what they need to do, but they will lose a certain group of buyers in order to attract mass market appeal like the rest of the other car manufacturers.

Hope it works out for the SWRT...they need all the help they can get.

IMHO, I would wait for the next design change or get a different car. Good luck with that.

Well, judging from the engine bay, they weren't kidding when they said the STi would be a lot different!!!
