Well as I told Rip earlier - looks like a Mazda and it sucks.

Well 2 years from now we will see something new and hopefully it will look a lot better!

We've all gotten to like nearly every version of the car over the last 10 years.

Everyone likes the GC era.

A lot of us like the bugeyes.

Most people were happy with the 04/05 changes.

We've warmed nicely to 06/07.

Stop whining. Let's wait until they're on the road.

I see "Ford Focus" though the Focus is actually more attractive. I'd like it alot better if it even had Focus sized fender flares.

Personally - I thought the 04 looked very RSX when it was released - didn't like it much. It grew on me when I heard the STi was coming for 04... I still don't like the WRX 04 since the side splitters the STi comes with seem to complete the front end...


I never really warmed to the 06/07 though, and the 08 is too much like a Chrysler Mini-Van front so far. Maybe the STi version will be sexy.


Not whining; just saying it seems fugly.

I just can't get past the fact that the 5 door looks like a Kia and the sedan looks like a Corolla. I guess I had higher expectations from a "re-design" you know.

Oh, interesting. Sedan definitely has a Corolla S look about it... which isn't really a terrible thing, if you don't mind a generic econo look. Not much character evident there tho.

Dual exhausts on the sedan?

Doesn't make up for the lack of big ole fender flares.

I don't think the wagon looks that bad (with the exception of the grill and tailights). The sedan is just plain sorry though.

The sedan could be so much better with a kit and different grill. And a chopped roof. And fender flares. And...yeah.

I like the sedan more than the hatch. I didn't think we were getting the sedan? I always liked the looks of the Corolla. Reminds me of a bull-dog.

That hoodscoop almost looks like muscle cars of old....I KIND off like it. That's it. The rest of the car just looks heinous.

I like the sedan! All you need is an aftermarket grill and it'll look A-OK!

At this point I think that the car stinks, and I don't like it.

Usually, the newer models of vehicles have been, on the whole, more attractive to me. The Supra, Integra, 300ZX, NSX just to name a few. Those got better with age, like a wine I guess.

The WRX though...

Maybe I just need to go back to the 90's, becauase it appears that those are my favorite styles.
