Makes me sad. At least the EVO is coming to Canada for 09.

I like the exterior styling of the saloon. I can't wait to see how the STi will shape up...

It's not bad, more modern with the crisp lines, but I can't get over the fact that it looks like the car is smiling. Cool cars don't smile.

Thank you Subaru for not making me want to trade my 05 for a newer model! Maybe the new one will grow on me like the 06 did but I still love my 05.

It looks like an American car more than a Japanese car now, and the tail gets more rice than the 06/07's!!!

Is it just me, or does the new Impreza design look really cheap. Aside from being ugly it looks like they are cutting a lot of corners.

Well I think this will just make the value of my car that much better. They must have given the designers valume this time around.. While I was hoping to keep my car for about five years anyway this will increase the chances.

Looks like they are trying to go more mainstream... and attract some Corrolla folks.

EDIT: Just wanted to clarify... I don't think it looks bad... Just not exciting without the fender flares.

did you only buy your subie for looks?

cuz I know that is not why I bought mine.

there is more to a car than just looks.

function over fashion

bought mine for both function and fashion.

But right now, it looks like the fashion has gone hay wire for the 08;
As for function, I hope they have extra accessories and what not. If it has the same stuff as the recent models, and the only change is the body and looks . . . it's going downhill.
