Welcome and congrats on the purchase.

We live in the past circa 03-06 when these cars were ugly, had unique styling, and were somewhat rare.

Now they are still ugly but have zero unique styling and are very common.

Give it about 12 months and everyone will like the styling. Even the 05/06 halo cars that people LOVE the styling of now HATED them back in the day.

I also have a 2016 Outback Limited (2.5i) fully loaded. These are my first Subarus ever.

I have to say, as a new member to this forum, I'm a little disappointed in the negative comments about the new Impreza. Since I own one I can say it really is quite impressive. It's no WRX, but stop comparing it to one, it's not meant to be one. It serves a purpose, and the new platform makes it really stiff and really responsive. I'm really excited about what Subaru has coming with this new platform, and if luck is in my back pocket, I will own a new WRX hatch in the near future. In the meantime, get in the current car and experience the platform and what they've done to improve it before you criticize it for something it was never intended to be.
