It's really awesome for a wagon. Not so awesome for an Impreza WRX STI.

Yeah, no. The interior looks great though. It would look good as a Suzuki.

I like it.. It LOOKS FUN, and aggressive. And we know the performance is amazing, and the platform is extremely capable as are all imprezas.

I saw a regular 2008 wrx hatch on teh road yesterday, it was the FIRST one Ive seen, and I was able to spot it coming at me almost naturally.. So its uniquely subaru, but that also means, its uniquely ugly haha. Noone liked the bugeyes when i first bought mine either.

It's growing on me. I think I may spend 35k differently though.

Don't care for it - There are much better looking cars out there for the price, with same or equal performance.

Better than a WRX, but not good looking. I would prefer an EVO any day of the week.

Wagons rule. Bold & exciting move by Subaru to move to the wagon for the STI model.

i think it will look MUCH better in person. at least that's how i was when the first regular WRX's came out for 08. wasn't to sure on the pics...but then the dealer got one...crap! they look good imo.

can't wait till we get one here at the dealer...might be time to get further in debt! wait...i mean

It makes a pretty sexy love child of a Mazda and a Kia. But I'd rock one. Looks better than the WRX.

Better then I thought but still ugly, I like the aggressive 05 - 07 look more. Plus the only car that i think really looks good with 4 exhaust tips is the M5.

I think some of the styling cues are from the current Forester. Well at least the fenders look similiar to me.

Based on the first 4 generations of the vehicle. Also, I wasn't talking about performance, sure it's incrementally 'better'. I just don't like wagons. Also a stock one is not in the same performance leauge as my car, but that's a personal attack which I'm above.
