  •  Gaaaah. Hate the looks. So bland. (0+ / 0-)

    'Tarted up Civic' is exactly right.

    Subaru's hook for me has always been the rough edged performance of the WRX/STi, combined with the unpretentious ugly/cute look. I owned the original bug-eyed WRX, and then a 2006 STi that was nothing special to look at but the most fun you could have with your clothes on.

    The next version hatchback design looked okay but was a big step backward with its wicked under-steer. And I find the last couple years' models very unappealing. The overcooked wheel arches and fins are just too juvenile.

    I was hoping Subaru would move the car forward with this iteration, but it's just another dull-as-dishwater jellybean shape. Very disappointing.

    Gets crossed off my short list for sure.
