I can imagine the wikipedia article in a decade

"Subaru, a division of Fuji Heavy Industries is a Japanese manufacturer of sedate commuter cars. Well known for all-wheel drive and boxer motors in their four door sedans and SUVs, however some may recall an brief entry into the sport compact performance market around the turn of the millennium."

I do not like the IS or TL, that's why I guess there are too many c-lais driving them, I dunno.

Probably. When I drove through town a couple weeks ago every 5th car was a new 3 series, which would put me right off buying one. Down here I've seen like 2 or 3 in town total.

^ Altima roof line?? LOL. Why don't you bother just say that Subaru offers Red body color on the legacy and it's copying Ferrari...

NO one cares about the suspension set up???

the roof line can have a dramtic effect on the cars look. Also, i dont think the majority of people buying this car even know what suspension is lol

^ LOL @ the suspension.

RE92s are only for building the tire walls at the track.

You are right cococly, the turbo version looks much better. Especially the 1st pic.

But it still looks too similar to everything else on the market, IMO.

Fender vents are the Chad Kroeger of automotive design.

Other than that the '402 version looks pretty good, too bad we won't get it. I wonder what the leggy wagon will look like...
