My goodness what has happened to Subaru? They used to make some of the coolest cars around. Now even my grandma thinks that they're boring!

But you can't blame them as their sales are at record levels with these uninspiring things..

... look like late 80's domestic sedan .... wtf ..so disappointed. Subaru can't never design a car to look right. Look at their current lineup and see how its look compare to other brands; w/o Toyota designers they would never have a brz, but then again they still mess up the front nose w/ ugly black mustache.

YAWN. I've completely lost interest in Subarus also.

Looks like a mule to me. Even the wheels are just generic Impreza wheels.

Looks like a mule to me as well.

I wouldn't count on the WRX looking like this - it's identical to the Impreza save for a slightly different grille?

Same as at some other Japanese auto-firms......cost-cutting. The dollar/yen ratio has forced some significant cutbacks in the expense of desiging new Japanese-nameplate cars. That's why, at Subaru, we're seeing (and have been seeing, for several years), things like thinner glass/sheet metal, less standard equipment (except that forced by Federal laws), fewer paint-colors, elimination of the classic Subaru two-tones and body-trim packages, more hard-plastic inside, fewer convienence features, substitution of light/cheap CVTs for proper 6-speed automatics, elimination of mechanical limited-slip differentials for less-effective electronic torque-vectoring, and a number of other examples. It's true that recent Subaru sales have done well, but many of the potential buyers, today, don't seem to really seem be looking at the cars closely, and comparing them to what they used to offer.

But Subaru, IMO, even with the cost-cutting, though, and the elimination of some equipment, still makes some of the best and most efficient AWD systems available today.

may be just mules....I thought I read awhile back that the WRX was gonna have its own bodystyle? unless like MM said due to costcutting they lumped it in again with the Impreza.

It's too late in the game for that to be a mule.

Not at all. It's a picture of a published magazine, meaning the content itself may be a few months old.

There's also no reason a car needs the proper BODY to test the chassis and suspension, especially when the body is what generates the emotional response and drives initial sales and the appearance of it is tightly managed.
