Default Mistaken Identity, (I see Suby wagons or....)

This probably has been covered before but I keep seeing Mazda Protege wagons and thinking a Suby wagon is coming at me. The shape and size is so close to Impreza wagons and the round fogs give your brain a solid identity hit as an 02-03. Even colors are similar as they have a blue that could pass as our WRB, and they are really popular in yellow. Anyone else?

Is it just me, or does anyone else always confuse Mazda 3's with '79 Lincoln Town Cars?

I've noticed that with some Suzukis...a few of their models look like downsized Legacys. Strikingly so.

Not that it really matters.

Actually, i agree - while i don't usually mistake them for subarus, i do think there is a rather striking similarity between the '06/'07 wagons and the protege5. I really like them, sexy cars. It helps that there are pretty much the only two wagons i see regularly that size.

OK guys seriously, even I admit that the new Imprezas look like Mazda Proteges...

2008 Impreza 2.5i


2003 Protege 5


and in real life they look almost identical on the highway!
