if that ends up being AWD that should be an interesting comparison to the WRX...and certainly not as ugly as the 08.

Looks like the current Lancer with FMIC... not bad though.

I hope they do give it AWD, this will give the WRX some competition and hopefully Subaru will rework the body and make it more aggressive again.

They did fire the guy that designed the 2008 already I think we will see good things in 2010.

Depends on how serious subaru is about aiming for the middle-age crowd. One one hand they can afford the cars easier; on the other...softer suspensions, less aggressive styling, more weight as amenities get added? Im not holding my breath at this point; just waiting to see what the market turns up in the next couple years

wow, just flew in from no where. Haven't seen you post or even your car in a good year and a half at least

Good to see you're still around

BTW, I agree with you. Those were someof the issues Car & Driver were pointing out. Heaverier car, not as agressive (one of the problems with the 08 compared with the new Lancer/EVO), and the suspension and tranny.

The car looks pretty nice. In the front it looks similar to the 08 Lancer. In the rear it looks like the Lexus IS 250/350. It would be nice to see a car from Mitsubishi to compete with the WRX.
