Post I don't think it looks like a neon...






What do y'all think?

PS. Sorry to kill the topic, but I'm bored!

Sorry, but it does.

It would be better with a wing and accents and nicer rims and all, but it still looks like a Neon. ESPECIALLY UP FRONT!

Yea, the only part that even resembles the neon is the headlights. Even then, there are other cars in the world that have headlights that look more similar. I personally think the overall shape resembles the Altezza/IS300.

Neons have hood scoops too? Great. Just freaking great. Then there's the similar headlights. Rear wing. Oh man....

No, the Neon doesn't have a hood scoop or a rear wing like that. That's just the D/C factory rice specialists Veon. It's a low performance econobox riced up to look like a New Viper(not the current design, but the upcoming one). Yes, the MY02 does look like a neon from the front.

Stickee,

I'm with you. I usually don't like voicing opinions on "looks" because "to each his own" but there are way too many visually impaired knuckleheads at this site that can't distinguish a Corvette from a Viper if their life depended on it!

The only similarity between the Neon and new Impreza is four wheels and the number of windows. Oh yeah, they both have steering wheels, too.

P.S. That Neon SRT is tres nice.

We'll see Gambit. I'm prolly just overly excited that's why. If all goes to plan, maybe I'll get the 2nd or 3rd iteration...

The old black spy photo is nice, but it is the virtually same car as the new blue photos. Same shape, same headlights, same contours (except the plastic on the hood). There will always be a chance to make the new car look how you want it to. Just add some tape to cover up the lights like they did, (if you like the new undercover model in testing look).

From this angle, I like it but from the front, the Hyundai-like hood and the bulbous headlights makes it look less aggressive and more on the cute side.

Someone post a picture of a blue '99 Neon (before the re-design). I think those headlights might look closer to the alleged new Impreza.

I think I'll Photoshop the dock photo just to make it a better shot with better lighting.

I saw the Mercedes in person today and it is the closest match--but really, once you get past an overly dark photo with two glaring bright eyes, it doesn't look that much like anything else. Which is what I would have hoped for from a new Impreza. I am glad Subaru dared to restyle the Impreza more distinctly. I was afraid we'd just get a slightly rounded version of the old one--which looks OK, but it's 10 years old and I think a change is more exciting.

Anyone have a picture of the now defunct Suzuki x-90 (MY95 to 98 I think) - I swear they stole the front off of it and slapped it on this new Impreza!

Here's your X-90. All it needs is a new bumper with fogs, and a hood scoop.
